Crazy Quilting Friday

Before I show you the crazy blocks for this week I want to ask you , have you ever been to the Garden of Eden ? Well that is where I was early this morning which explains why I am a little later posting today . Would you like to see a picture of the Garden of Eden , well here you are , now this scene is much prettier when the leaves are on the trees and the grass is green and the lake is calm and glimmering in the sun but this is what it looked like this morning around 8:30 am. These are not the best pictures of this area but it was cold and I took these from the car window  you can see the mirror in this  shot ;-)
Now to get to the Garden of Eden you have to drive through Blue Mountain ,what a strange name you say , well if you were here in August you would understand as the fields are blue with blueberries ,blueberries grow really well in Nova Scotia as we have very acidic soil . Here is what the fields look like now , I love this color , it is gorgeous . As you can see there is still some snow in the mountains but it is almost gone .  So that is how I started my day with a quick trip to the Garden ,just lovely!

Once I got home I started at my crazy block , I usually try to get that made on Thursday but I was too busy yesterday and didn't get it made ,however I did manage to get two made this morning , wasn't planning on doing two but I was on a roll , had the fabric before me so just kept going . Did some fancy stitches but they will need more ,however it is time to do a little work here , you know , keep ahead of the dust bunnies , I'd rather be sewing but somethings must be taken care of . Thanks to Betsy of Quilting Fiesta for hosting this event , why not join us . Enjoy your day and hope you enjoyed your visit to the garden .


Sorry for the way these photos are arranged can't seem to get things to cooperate .
