After a fun-filled, busy few days it was time to head back home. I had planned a few stops on the way and met some great new people at The Muskoka Quilting Company in Bracebridge ON and 3 Gals and a Quilt Shop in Huntsville ON. I even ran into Laurie from Northcott at the […]
Spent the day yesterday doing some of my computer stuff and finally got some notes on the road trip and calendar done. Double checked this morning and noticed I had the wrong date for Fabulous Flowers in Prescott- it’s the 26th not the 19th! Everything else looks good and I will be adding more as […]
