I love to dye fabric, make thread pictures and quilt. I live in the Yukon on an acreage with my husband, 2 dogs and 34 fish. It's the 'good' life.

Well, well, well..

I really had no intention of posting on the blog, but I received such a nice comment from 'Quilt 204', who did not leave her name, so Quilt 204 it is. She said that she hoped that I would start posting again, so how can I say no??

Holy crap. My blog went to shit poop while I was away! Pictures missing, info mixed up, etc..etc.. I spent a few hours today sprucing it up and fixing things. I only went back so far before I got tired of it.

Without further ado, here is my first post of 2014--a look back at what I did last year.

I went on an awesome retreat with my good friends.

We wore these teeth.

Ate these yummies.

And made these silly wallhangings.

After I taught the cardinal class, I knew my friend Janet would finish. And boy, did she do a good job! Here is her cardinal that she finished in ANOTHER class I was teaching in her home town of Carcross.Isn't this terrific?!   And the proud mom of this gorgeous thread piece. She did great..


I celebrated my 50th birthday. 

Made a baby quilt for a very good friend, with 2 co-workers (Janet and Robin).

Made 2 of these raggie quilts -- for my hubbies best friend and my father-in-law who loved it. 

Went to Penticton, BC with my hubby Mookie for his Christmas work Christmas party.

Had record snow fall--and this is just our roundabout in the driveway! 

And for Christmas, my crazy sister got me this. I needed a laugh.

Christmas Eve day I spent seeing the surgeon in Whitehorse, and snapped this somber picture of the snow. Worried and apprehensive about medical issues. 

Ended up in Vancouver for further tests right after Christmas.

The day before my biopsies I ate this (or several of these)

And found the best store! (I'm fine now, everything turned out excellent).

And THAT was my year in one post. A few more things happened, and maybe I will talk about them, and maybe not. But whatever, it was nice to get back and fix the blog and talk to you all. 

I hope your 2014 is wonderful! 


  1. Hello back atcha! It's been a year of changes for me, too. Nice to read your post. :)

  2. Glad to hear from you. I wondered what happened. Good to see you are back at it. We only live about 1000 miles apart in Smithers.

  3. Hi Dahn, So lovely to hear that all is well. I had been missing your posts and pictures and had wondered about the etiquette of writing to ask if you were ok or if you might post again. I'm still jealous of your snow. Take care of yourself and thanks for the post and the pictures.
