NEXT STITCH BY STITCH…

Unfortunately, I have to change the date of my next visit to Kingston’s Stitch by Stitch to March 18th from the 11th. But holy cow, by then the snow will be gone! and robins will be pulling worms from the sweet soft new grass and – well that might be a bit optimistic, however, I have noticed that we seem to be changing the timer for our front porch lights on a weekly basis which means the days are getting longer! How wonderful!!!!

Here are a few pix from our most recent guild meeting:

Marie did a wonderful presentation on the Canadian Flag which just celebrated it’s 50th birthday. She spoke about the history of the flag and its significance and how to incorporate it into our hooked rugs…

  1. Hi Loretta,

    I’m intrigued by Karen’s punched elephant. Do you have any details about the workshop she’s giving?

    All the best,

    Bill (in San Francisco, at the moment – back in mid March in time for those robins you talked about?)
