Snows are headed our way...
10-15 cm for the weekend!
I adore the first snows and then I could leave for the rest of Winter.
This past weekend I hit the road and headed to
a hook-in in picturesque St. Andrews, NB.
Two gals rode down in my truck with me.
Honestly they are such a hoot it was equal to the fun of the day.
The Quoddy Loopers hosted
and they did such a terrific job.
The church hall was brimming with hookers and a vendor.
As per usual, the homemade soups, sandwiches and dessert
squares were delicious;
and no one makes a cup of tea like a Maritimer.
|Sande Gunning of Leamington, Ontario|
(and formerly from here) returned with awesome wares
|Sande made these on a 100 yr old knitting machine|
I bought some for my daughter for Christmas
shhhh, don't tell
|The rug show was smaller but good|
I don't know why there were no labels this year
|These are some of the baskets waiting for the drawing|
|This is the basket I won-|
the biggest one there,
stuffed with wool and a mug and tea.
I have won a basket every year except last year.
It has gotten a bit embarrassing (I get ribbed a lot)
but not so much that I don't buy tickets.
Oh! And three of the women from the mental health day program
came to the hook-in and really loved it too.
So grateful they could come.
I'm looking forward to some travel South for American Thanksgiving.
I know the month will whiz by so I am savouring the moments:
the last colours of Autumn, the smell of the leaves,
the urgent activity of the squirrels, the Canada geese honking as they flap
Enjoy the moments too friends.
