We welcomed our Australian cousins Pip and Fox
and had a great time showing them around our little piece of the world.
Then I became the traveller
Joining the Connections Fibre Artists group for a stitching retreat.
Reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.
Four days spent with fellow stitchers is so renewing
for those of us who quietly work alone in our studios.
Four days spent with friends old and new
means one heck of a lot of talking!
and boy did we laugh!
Thank you to Elizabeth and her sister Patti for their generous hospitality
Many thanks to Bethany who drove me to meet up with my son Mark.
Mark and I drove North amid fields of wind turbines
Beautiful in their strangeness
and for the first time ever they were all twirling!
Travelling through rural Ontario....
....one is bound to find many....
....a barn and at this time of year....
Then Collingwood comes into view.
Thank you to my boys and their families for
a lovely Thanksgiving.
Now I am home again and back in the studio
getting used to the quiet
and hopefully starting many new stitchings.
