where did last week go??

Boy did last week fly by.
For me it was filled with work and then a few appointments , the weekend at the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame  for the inductions of this years nominees. My high light of the week would be meeting Sheila from Sheila's Quilt World.

We have been chatting back and forth almost from the beginning of my blogging ... it was like meeting an  old friend . We met up at Periwinkle  quilt shop in Saskatoon home of Michelle from Periwinkle Quilting  and Beyond blog . Michelle greeted us as we all arrived Monika from My Sweet  Prairie, Flo from Butterfly Quilting and Brenda who had done a postcard exchange with Sheila . We took over the back half of the shop for a while and then went over to Jerry's  for ice cream. It was great to meet the ladies I have been chatting with over the last couple of years. Thank you Michelle for opening your shop to us and the coffee and cookies too.And thank you to Monika for getting the other gals together for Sheila and I to meet.

I did manage to have a few extra minutes with Sheila as we drove her to her son's house. It was such a great pleasure to met Sheila, we will get together on her next visit out and who knows maybe I will get out to Nova Scotia to see her at home.  When we got together we had little gifts for each other we both had made a tote bag to give the other ( with out knowing it). She also made me the cutest little pincushion that she stitched ...beautiful work Sheila.



















I just love  it Sheila It is the perfect size I used it this past weekend to hold some quilting for the road trip and a few other goodies as well.
 I did get some work done for the Bowls with Borders blog hop. My turn is this week on the 22, stop on by and enter in the give away that I will be having.

In stitches
