Word of the Year
For the past couple of years, I have set a Word of the Year as an intention. Last year, my word was DISCOVER and boy did I discover things about myself. It was also a wonderful reminder to re-discover all the things that I love to do at home. I did DISCOVER so many things about me especially in a year that we were locked down, in code red and had restricted social interactions because of COVID-19. A great place to DISCOVER for me is in nature. This is a photo I took on a hike in Pinawa, Manitoba.
Join me and others in our canola community and share your word, I would love to connect. I am still finalizing my 2021 word and will share all about it February post. Stay Tuned.

More Whole Grains
The new year is a very popular time to set new goals, start new hobbies, and try new things. Join me in exploring some tasty recipes that showcase whole grains! Canada’s Food Guide recommends whole grain foods as they provide fibre, vitamins and minerals! Don’t like the taste whole grain bread? There are many other whole grains to try other than bread. Join me in trying some new whole grains this new year! When looking for whole grain foods in the grocery store look for “100% whole grains”.

Creating with Fabric
I’ve had a long-term relationship creating with fabric that spans my entire life. As a small child I remember lying under quilts up in frames as my mom or Grandma stitched away. Every home I’ve lived in has had a sewing machine (I even had one with me at University). So it’s no surprise that I’m still sewing all these years later. My favourite projects are quilts. I love fabric new or old and my favourite right now is sewing someone else’s scraps. Scrap busting quilts challenge my mind, make excellent use of discarded fabric and have offered me a place to practice the flow.
