This is Heather’s Fly Away Home quilt and it is a pattern designed by the owner of Tiger Lily Quilts in Wolseley, SK. The pattern is originally a 40” x 45” size but they changed it to 84” x92”. I love the teal and browns as those are my favorite ‘beachy’ colours. Heather picked a few pantographs that she liked and I chose Plush from her list. Batting is Quilters Dream Blend and the thread is a medium teal So Fine.
As you can see most of our snow is gone and in the last two days the ice has been disappearing fast off the lake. This morning I was playing with the ice that has ‘candled” which means it is very brittle and ready to move.
I was having fun scooping up the ice and playing with the thin pieces the size of pencils.
If feels like we have gone from winter to summer overnight as we are now getting 20’c temperatures and the ice is disappearing fast. I took this first pictures this morning…
…and this picture tonight. The main lake is now open water and the ice in our bay is moving out to the open lake very quickly. I don’t expect to see any ice when I wake up tomorrow.
