I also had an opportunity to explore the historic main street lined with charming shops and restaurants.
I stopped for coffee at this funky little coffee shop called Covernotes.
That night I gave a lecture/trunk show to the Region of York Quilters' Guild. Patti Carey (of Northcott Fabrics fame) was in the audience and kindly brought this quilt she designed with my first line of Northcott fabric, "Falling Leaves".
The following day I gave a Hosta Leaves workshop to a group of quilters who seemed also to be gardeners and hosta lovers.
Evelyn was the first one finished.
This is "Foxy", the cat that lives at his residence.
I spent the weekend in Waterloo, and then headed back to Newmarket on Monday, where I taught two workshops for The Quilt Store. This is Denise and I getting masked up before mixing our dyes on Day 1. It also happened to be Halloween, so we thought these masks would make a great Facebook post.
On Wednesday I taught my Liberated Radial Piecing workshop.
Within minutes of arriving home on Thursday night Peekaboo was on my lap, and she has been there every opportunity she could find for the past few days.
Thank you Newmarket, both the Quilters' Guild and The Quilt Store, for your warm hospitality.
Your photos of the beautiful fall trees in Canada are impressive. Love those hosta quilts, and I'm sure your students had a good experience in your classes. And of course you know I love to see the visiting dog in class and then the home lap cat! On my recent trip from Mississippi to Maine a woman flew with her Westie on her lap and walking about the airports. An all-day trip, but the dog wasn't happy unless he was right with her.ReplyDelete
