We're back!

The trip to Canada was fabulous. The MOTH & I had a simply marvelous time. We wined & dined our way across the country, but thanks to a regime of walking at least 5 miles every day, we came back a little fitter than when we left.

I think I found one craft shop in all my exploring (I assure you that I tried to find more) & only stitched on one occasion. I did, however, come home to a letterbox of stitching stash from friends belatedly honouring my birthday in April (photos coming).

The life of more ordinary times (sounds like I'm describing the Liturgical Year) starts again next Tuesday when The MOTH goes back to work. In the meantime, we have a long weekend for Queen's birthday coming up (that woman has a lot of birthday celebrations around the globe each year, doesn't she?) & a buddy (who is madly into scrap-booking) coming to stay.

Oh, & just so that you know, today is Hug Your Cat Day. Go ahead and give your cat a big, furry hug. Gypsy's hug will have to wait until she comes back from 'Princess Street' - i.e. the home of my 2 eldest daughters & the crown princess's consort. Miss Cat has lived a life of luxury & warmth while we were away.

Right now, it's off to do a little blog surfing to see what you have all been up to while I was gone!

Happy stitching,

Bliss, I'm glad you had a great trip! And that you didn't just sit and stitch the whole time! But should you ever have a need/want of something CDN that you seen in your travels, drop me a line and I'll try and help you out.

Welcome home Bliss. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Canada is such a gorgeous country.

Thank you so much for thinking of me on your travels and sending me a Quebec birthday card. Quebec is on my list of places I HAVE to visit.

'Talk' to you soon.
