I Love Thursday

I love seeing my oldest grandson via social media on his 27th birthday. He is such a wonderful man and great daddy. I’m so proud of him.

Proud papa with his son and daughter.

I love the sunny days we are having here in BC and seeing the golfers coming out and practising safe distancing and proper procedures while getting some exercise.

I love the taste of onions and garlic. Since DH is allergic to the point that even the smell causes a reaction, I don’t often get to eat them. Before Covid I used to be able to visit friends that fed me one or the other any chance we could get together. One of these amazing ladies sent me a care package of a dish of beet and onion salad. She has been self quarantined for 2 months and has a husband who works in health care so I felt safe indulging in this treat outdoors in the sun yesterday. It was so appreciated and yummy! Just what I needed to remind me that friends can still be together, even if it’s just in our thoughts and hearts. I didn’t get to take a picture because I had to eat it and brush my teeth and use mouthwash before my DH came in from the golf course. 😉

I really am happy that it seems that spring has arrived. I love being able to put away the winter sweaters and sweatshirts. Getting my summer clothes out of the truck was fun. I had forgotten what I owned! Unfortunately some of the clothes don’t fit right now. The Covid pounds have crept up on top of the weight I had gained after shoulder and then 2 eye surgeries. Not stressing about it. The weight will come off now that I can get out walking and doing some work out on the course.

I love starting new quilt projects, but I think I love the finishes more. my goal is to get as many UFO’s sandwiched and quilted as I can. I’m low on batting. I have a roll sitting in Kelowna ready for pick up as soon as the lockdown is lifted. Until then I’ll work with what I have and be happy that I can get anything done with what I have on hand.

This is Day 43 of self isolation.

How is your week going? Are you quilting or is gardening taking over your life.

Not Afraid of Colour – I Like Thursday


Published by Carol Andrews

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Ugh, it seems forever, doesn’t it? I’ve added 10 pounds since the end of January, I think! And I already didn’t need them. Stress eating and lack of exercise. Love all your loves, but especially those precious babies and their daddy.

  2. Not that it’s a competition, but from the date of my surgery last September until now, it’s 31 pounds! I feel like a slug but am determined not to stress and just keep getting more exercise. Aren’t my two youngest great grands just the sweetest? Ryan is such a gentle, funny young man and so good with the littles. This Nana’s heart swells every time I think of them or see pictures. I can’t wait until I can travel to see them. Maybe this summer? 😉


  3. Oh my, I’m not sure I could cook without onions & garlic – I love them. I haven’t golfed in years, maybe I should give it a go again. COVID pounds – uffda. I’ll worry about getting the pounds off when we can be out and about again! Nice photo of your son and grandbabies!


    1. Thank you Wendy. Ryan is actually my grandson and the littles are two of my 4 great grand babies! 😉. Good thing I love my DH. Having to learn to live without onions and garlic 95% of the time was the compromise I had to agree to in order to have him in my life. I’m getting out now more since we live on the golf course. Too bad I don’t play the game 😉

  4. Hi Carol! What a nice post to enjoy your likes. Ahh yes, to Spring arriving. I always admire the golf courses and their nice perfectly green grass. It is time for them to open up here, as well. It is great for some fresh air and exercise. Your next fabric project looks so pretty! I can’t wait to see what it becomes. I’m going to send your website to LeeAnna who hosts the I Like Thursday group that I join – is that okay? She would love to know you are participating as well. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Thank you. I’d love for you to send it to Lee Anna. The fabrics are even prettier in real life. Pictures never seem to do them justice. Have a wonderful day! I’m off to do the dreaded grocery shop. 😷

  5. Hi Carol, nice to meet you! Roseanne just told me you’ve been doing I Like posts! Terrific I’ll add you link in to the line up, and welcome to the family. It’s been a godsend to me and my sanity, to have these smart funny upbeat women in my life! LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  6. Carol, I love your purples & blues … am very curious as to what they will become!
    I don’t golf, but my daughter is talking about going to one of the courses around here that are open. I’d love to walk the course and visit with her while socially distancing … but … who knows if they’ll let me?
    Your great-grands are adorable!!!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

    1. Thank you Gail. I won’t be showing off this quilt until September when the pattern is released in the Quilt Pattern Magazine. I don’t golf either but often walk the course when DH is out there. Suggest you give the course a call to see if they will let you walk along. Our course does as long as you social distance but I once got kicked off a course when I took my sons out. I was so upset because my 12 year old got a hole in one! Aren’t those 2 just the cutest! 😁 Carol


  7. Welcome to I like Thursday….oh I don’t know how to cook or even eat without onion and garlic. Gorgeous fabrics you are using. What sweet great grands.

    1. Thank you Colette. The onions and garlic is a traumatic experience for me as well! I used to use them almost every meal! Glad you like the fabrics and yes these great grands are just the sweetest! I really can’t wait to meet them. 😉 Carol


  8. I wonder how well we’d be doing if we didn’t have computers and the Internet to keep us connected. You got me appreciating both a lot more. I’m grateful that the Husband likes onions and garlic as much as me. His mom was allergic to both. Take care out there.

    1. Hi Susan. I wonder as well. My kids,grands and great grands are either in Mexico or Alberta so it is impossible to even have a meet at the park visit. This way I can see and hear them all. In case you hadn’t guessed, I desperately miss onions and garlic. Thank heavens for care packaged from friends! Stay hi home; stay well and do have some fun! 😉 Carol
