I'm on a roll tonight, so I may as well finish blogging about my fantastic trip to Nova Scotia! Tomorrow is prep time for a class I'm teaching here in Ottawa.
Here are a couple of photos that Barb Robson took at my lecture in Mahone Bay
Barb has posted a lot more photos here.
My flight didn't leave until Tuesday night, which gave me some more time to tour around. Ann took me on a drive to Lunenberg to visit Laurie Swim in her home, studio and gallery. It turns out that Laurie has a new cat named Sheba, adopted from the local rescue. So here is Laurie and her cat.
I had a few snuggles with Sheba too. She's that kind of cat!
Laurie invited rug hooker Felicia Knock to join us. Felicia brought her beautiful colour box of hand-dyed wools. Hookers use them for rugs, but we saw the potential for quilts. I couldn't resist two pieces! This is Felicia with her beautiful fabrics, with Laurie to her side.
A big thank you to all the quilters I met in Nova Scotia for your hospitality! What more could I ask for than a trip with friendly quilters, beautiful scenery, good food, and of course a few felines!
