Who I am and why I’m here.
I have been blogging since 2012. I am a quilter and originally, blogging was a way to share and connect with other quilters; and I have made many great connections worldwide with other like-minded, & extremely creative individuals. Posting about my projects, I had to learn how to photograph my quilts, to display them at their best…which drew me into my current interest in photography. Now I post mostly my photographic pursuits, though i am still making quilts & blogging about them.
At about the same time, my husband & I moved from a busy urban life with fast paced jobs, to living a quieter lifestyle in rural, Ontario. We live in Prince Edward County, in the south-eastern part of the province, jutting into Lake Ontario. It is an area rich in creativity. There are lots of wineries, micro breweries, a distillery, & cider houses. lots of great restaurants & farm markets & cheese production. It is home to a large variety of artists. and last but definitely not least, it is a beautiful natural playground with beaches & bays, wildlife & birding reserves.
So now, here I am…still quilting, still learning to take pretty pictures, and living a quieter lifestyle in this beautiful area.
My blog is sharing little snippets of how I see my world. I will be blogging about photography, my current quilt projects, my neighbourhood & adventures, and I may just throw in the odd recipe, as I love to cook as well.

On a more serious note, please don’t use my photos without asking as they are taken by me. Stealing them would be a little rude. Also if you wish to re-post one of my tutorials or recipes, you needn’t ask, but please link back to this blog when you do. Thank you in advance.
