Long Live the Road Warrior!!!

Ready... Set... GO!

After work yesterday marked the beginning of my summer roadtrippin'!!! My poor little car, car, I hope its ready for a little abuse (good little car, car!). For me summer is a huge season to get out and about to visit my friends! Did I mention... stitching friends, that is a requirement by the way, to be my friend is you must stitch. I am happy to teach you!!! You can ask Christin and Claire they have been properly converted.

Sadly, poor Todd is being left alone at home this season. Silly, silly man isn't taking any summer holidays so instead of staying home to spend an evening with him where he'll fall asleep on the couch and I'll stitch I'm hitting the road!

This weekend : its a visit with Kathy on the shores of Lake Ontario! I'm looking forward to hearing the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore when I go to sleep at night. I know some of my other Brighton stitching friends will be popping by as well. So look for pictures Monday-ish of this adventure.

Next weekend : its the Holstien Rodeo with Ann & Dan!

The weekend after : Stitching weekend in Kingston!

The following weekend : I'm flying to Jacksonville, Fla. to check in on my best friend Claire

This brings us up to August 2nd when I return from Jacksonville. My Mum and I have talked about a few nights in Montreal the following week while I'm still on holidays. Nothing is decided at this point, we'll see how I'm feeling after all that mileage!

May you travel all your roads in safety and joy ... a belated Happy Canada Day, I love the Maple Leaf with fairy faces ... it combines my favorite fall color way and my favorite thematic material ... can you share the name/designer of the chart and how I may get a copy.
