I am getting very nervous (and excited) BUT mainly nervous for Sunday's race. It has been a long training season with a few small hiccups such as very cold weather and a nagging foot injury. I find once you get over 15 km or greater in distance things can start to fall apart. I am really hoping it goes well. I love running and I just want a solid race. As long as I cross that finish line, upright and smiling (even if I have the worst time), I will be so very happy.

I quickly drew up the tulip and used some charm squares to make the 9- patch. Then found some scraps to make the double border and binding.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I may have squealed with delight when I spotted the envelope in the mailbox today!!!
(I usually don't post items with my last name but they were just too cute to blur out.)

My bf and I went on a mini-road trip to Fort Macleod yesterday- about a 2 hour drive each way. We ran in the Willow Creek Wilderness Run (5k) and then headed to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. On our way back to Calgary, we stopped in Nanton for lunch at the burger shack and hit up a very popular ice cream and candy shop.

It has been quite the busy month. I went to Quebec City last week, my half marathon is in 10 days and we leave for vacation in less than 2 weeks. I was still able to carve out some quilting time. I finished up this little table topper. I made it from a cute charm pack that Mom bought me in Havre, Montana.

Trying to get the lighting right was a tad hard but the first one is with a flash, the second is without and appears darker than it really is.
