Oh my - it would appear that I missed an amazing quilt show at Black Creek Pioneer Village. I hope that others got a chance to see it.
Thanks to Pat, here is a picture of my quilt that was hanging on the Town Hall building.

Pat tells me that there was a photographer taking pictures on Saturday and he took down my quilt so he could take a picture of the happy couple. Duh - he was NOT a quilter I guess.

Yesterday was a quiet day. Yes - there is nothing to do on Salt Spring Island!!!! OK - that is not true. We did head into Ganges to get some groceries. And then back home where we just chatted and I am stitching down binding!!!! Yep - those girlie John Deere quilts came with me.
Thanks to Facebook, my second cousin (my aunt's first cousin) knew that I was heading to Salt Spring (he lives on Vancouver Island) so he and his partner, Liz, arranged to come to Salt Spring for a visit. I haven't seen Neil in years. Actually I think I was still a kid living on the farm!!!!! But through the wonders of Facebook, we have stayed in touch.

We had a great visit and then they were off to catch the ferry. When you live on the island and you need to go somewhere - your life is dictated by the ferry schedule. We did nothing the rest of the day - just visit and it was wonderful!!!!!
Oh my god - we just turned on the news and the reported had a gorgeous scarf with bicycles all over it!!!! I want that scarf!!!! No time to grab the camera to take a picture. OK - I am very obsessed.
But we have an adventure planned for today that will blow your socks off. I am pretty excited about it. And we are not leaving the island either!
On that mysterious note - I am out of here. I must get some more of this binding on!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
