happy anniversary!

today marks the fourth anniversary of our grand exodus to the country. like most major events in life, if i think back, it all seems so fresh in my mind, like it just happened last week.

most people are surprised to hear that we moved out to the middle of nowhere from a big city. i suppose it is a little backwards, but truth is, rural saskatchewan has always felt like home. both of my parents were born and raised in skatchy (they moved to alberta when my mom was pregnant with me) and we spent all of our holidays here with family.

whenever they hear ‘saskatchewan’ people think flat and boring, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. saskatchewan has a beauty all it’s own and it really needs to be seen to be appreciated.

we’ve done a lot of growing out here, as a family, and as individuals. we’ve learned to appreciate the simple things. we’ve learned to slow down and just live in the moment. we’ve learned to be self reliant. we’ve also learned that we just enjoy being together. it was a difficult change from the pace of the city, but one we’ve embraced fully

i live on the beautiful Saskatchewan prairie with my sweet man, my two darling boys, our dog trixie, 5 cats, three chickens, two horses, and a zillion frogs. i started sewing when i was 10 and did garment sewing for many years before i discovered quilting. i have been obsessed with quilting since 1994. i am self taught, so i may not do things 'by the book', but i don't think the quilt police are too concerned about l'il ol' me. my quilts are made to be loved and i hope i outlive them all!

  1. Love your blog. As a city girl living in sort of the country, I know the change in life style. Have not wanted to go back to the city in the last 45 years. Was Brought up in Winnipeg but have a lot of relitives in Sask.
