The B Life: May 2014

Quilt Show

**Photos of quilts were taken/blogged with permission from the event coordinator.

Every year, not far from my hometown, there is an international quilt show. This year, they were showcasing quilts from England. So my mom invited me along, and together with my Grandma, we headed off to look at these fabulous quilts for a belated Mother's Day festivity. 

The day was lovely. I snapped some photos of these amazing works of art, and taught Grandma how to take a selfie. I was also the youngest person there by at least 20 years.

I was a fan of the vintage looking quilts, though the exhibit featured quilts of all sizes and styles. One of my favourite (and my mom's favourite) non-traditional quilts was the incredible "Three Indian Women" quilt. It was amazing to see what some artisans can do with fabric! 

Suddenly, I am feeling really inspired to start quilting...

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a lovely day, wherever you are. Don't forget to follow along or comment ... I love connecting with my readers!

Life at Nick's

Nick desires nothing more than to have a plot of land, drive his tractor, and grow things. His family owns a 2 acre plot of land just outside of town, and over the last 10 or so years, Nick has worked to make it his own. He currently inhabits a room in their basement while he pays off school debt (he studied to be a mechanical engineer). 

Weekends like this are my favourite. Chickens roaming around his yard, putting bees in their hives, driving around his little John Deere, and digging up a plot of land - which is to be turned into a small garden. 

Truth be told, I never thought I would be a homesteading girl. It turns out, though, that I love working alongside him. It's so different from academic life, but so much more rewarding. 

What have you been up to this weekend? Are you getting your garden ready to plant?
