The drive to Kitchener was long - we had a late start due to helping a friend, and ended up in Friday night rush hour traffic in the rain through Toronto.  The trip normally taking 4 hours, took 7 1/2!
The quilt show was lovely.  I was expecting more quilts as their guild is twice the size of ours!  I'll have to show some pictures tomorrow, as I haven't downloaded them from the camera yet.
My future DIL asked to go to Len's Mill Store after the show, as she was looking for some fabric for a hallowe'en costume.  We found a cute Advent calendar panel, and some goldfish cracker shark fabric that had to come home, as she'd like to have ab  advent calendar. They saw a microwave tortilla warmers at the quilt show, so DS2 chose the goldfish fabric to make one of those as well.  Since they have lots of assorted household articles there, by the time we left the bill was almost $80!
Since they are just starting out, they still need a few incidental items, and DH & I love to help out.....

The visit was too short, but they are planning to come to us for a visit in a couple of weeks, so we'll see more of them then.
My brother and his wife are arriving from China next week, and we are looking forward to a visit with them as well.  Our calendar always fills up this time of year, and so does the list of quilting projects that need finishing soon......

Check out Judy's blog to see how others' stash usage is faring this week.


  1. Great numbers, Susan. Cute panel too.

  2. This time of the year is always full of family and friends it seems. Enjoy them. I love the shark fabric.
