Where did the year go?

Its been one of those years where you blink twice and the summer is gone.  We had company from Alberta this summer, just a few quick visits.

We went to Woodstock, Ontario then onto Ingersoll, www.StitchItCentral.ca  is there.  Its like being a kid in the candy store.  So many types of floss, fabrics, patterns and a whole section of quilting as well.  I didn't know where to start.  I am hoping to go back again before the snow flies.  Its about 4 1/2 hours away.

May, I went to Embroidery Association of Canada Seminar.  It was my first time there and what a positive experience.  i had applied and received a scholarship for my tuition which made the trip more appetizing.  I took the train to Toronto for the first time and met my wonderful roommate on the train.  We were in the same class with Barbara Kershaw.

i put a quilt together for Ann MacDonald www.knowledgeandneedles.com When I delivered the quilt top at Ann's Annual Stitch In, she had Mike Parr there.  Mike is an upcoming designer and has been featured in the Enbroidery Canada magazine.

My next post will have photos of my work.  Hopefully next week and more new things.  We are expecting cousins from England this weekend.  Plus this is the Wednesday Stitchers Annual Breakfast Club meeting this cominÄ£ weekend.  Busy week for me and throw in a few medical appts for flavor.  I think thats all for now.

its very foggy here this morning.
