Weekend Update

Saturday I awoke to a dreary and rainy morning, ideal for a road trip and a little stash enhancement! Christin my Mum and I hopped in my car and drove down to Kingston for the Cataraqui Guild's annual merchant's mart and exhibit.


What a lovely time I had! I ran into so many people I knew and got lots of hugs... that really made me feel great. I ran into a group of ladies I know from Brighton, some folks from the Guild here in Ottawa, and I got to meet Rebbecca a fellow blogger I've been in touch with for the last few months. This picture is of Rebbecca and I at the Knowledge and Needles booth.


I think we all dropped quite a bit of money in Kingston... I know I did! I picked up 4 1/2 meters of fabric that I just couldn't leave behind... the orangy-red fabric I actually two 1/2 meters. I plan to make a pillow with that. I picked up four new charts, Houses and Village of Hawk's Run Hollow for my upcoming neighbourhood round robin. I also got Ink Circles Fantasy Blackwork Garden (love it!) and X's and Oh's Cat Alphabet. My Mum fell in love with the quilt made by the designer so I bought the chart... I'll stitch them for her... but she's got to quilt it!

After taking everyone home, and getting settled in... I fell asleep and did get up until Sunday morning! I've been sleeping a lot lately!

Today was pretty low key. I didn't stitch a lot, I started the last ornament in my ornament RR : Peace on Earth by JBW Designs from teh 06 JCS Ornament Issue. I should be able to finish it tomorrow. I went to another trial Tai-Chi class and I've been playing games on Yahoo. I felt a little depressed today. I didn't touch The Castle or Noah's Sub at all this weekend.

Hey Dani,

Next time you are here I'll put you in touch with Joyce. She goes to Tai-Chi twice a week and loves it.
Great seeing you on Saturday.

Sounds like a fun day! Great stash! I really like the colors in the "ribbon" fabric. The paws are cute. I need that orangy fabric, it would make great accent things in my bedroom!

You look so good with glasses! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of you with them. :) Also, I really like Villages of Hawk Run Hollow - between that and your order from SB&Bs, you'll be a busy lady!! :)
