I have been very busy this week -- back and forth into Vancouver a couple of times and not really doing much blogging at all.
When I was in Calgary I took a little side trip up to Red Deer to meet Anna -- aka "Quiltmom" with no blog to link to at this time. I think there are bloggers out there that are encouraging her to get a blog. But she is a smart one and says she can read more blogs and do more quilting if she doesn't have her own blog --- now wouldn't that be the truth!!
I had a great visit with Anna - and met her mum and dad and her son. Anna lives in Edmonton so she drove down meet me in Red Deer. We went to two quilt shops -- I bought quite a bit of fabric in each -- but not as much as Anna!! She is a shopping Diva!! Both quilt shops had some great fabric on sale and Anna really figured up what the best values were and got lots of great fabric that could be used in all kinds of future quilts.
We had a great visit and I loved spending time with her parents as well. It was a wonderful day. Anna's mum gave me a jar of her home made Chokecherry Syrup. I haven't tried it yet - I think I will have to make a big batch of French Toast for the occasion. My Grandmother used to make Chokecherry jam when I was a child.
Here is Anna and her Mum - this is a quilt that Anna was making for a wedding just this past weekend.
Another photo of the quilt. Love the bright colours!!
I must take a picture of all my fabric I purchased and the beautiful bracelet that Anna made for me. If I had been thinking I would have taken a couple of pictures of all the fabric Anna bought as well. She made some great purchases - and it was all 60% off -- $6.00 -$4.00 a meter. It was a very successful shopping trip -- and great fun!! Thanks to Anna and her Mum.
I am falling behind in my blogging - but I knew it would be a busy summer this year and I would be not as active in my blogging. Now I am off to work two night shifts this weekend!!
