Minus 6 hours from now - unfortunately....

Hi there!

Well, I just had an INCREDIBLE DAY!!!

Got to the cruise ship terminal at 7h30 a.m. -
The cruise ship passengers were
permitted to come down at 8h00

Elaine and I hugged and hugged and hugged!!!

It was like being reunited with a long-lost sister!!!!

Elaine gave me a bag of goodies -
See the one with the silly, happy grin?!???
That's me and I'm wearing a blue coat,
with a pinkish bag of goodies?!??!

Unfortunately for her but fortunately for me,
when she had tried to go to the quilt shop,
in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, on Sunday...
it was closed.

I had gone to Charlottetown,
the previous weekend on a business trip
and picked up a "book", to give to Elaine.

I was a bit concerned as I KNEW
she would be visiting this quilt shop
and I was worried that she
might pick up this same book.

Anyhow, here's a few pictures
of this neat book. *grin*

This is made with just plain cardboard,
and the "book" is covered with a fat quarter of fabric.

There's 5 more fat quarters, within the "book".

This is the Anne of Green Gables fabric line!

Anyhow, we toured my fair city
and had a late dinner (noon lunch),
at my home, with lobster and potato salad.

We parted company around 4h00 p.m.

I'm already missing them....


I'll be taking pictures of Elaine's
wonderful gifties, in another blog.

Right now, I'm exhausted...

Hitting the sack, real soon.

Thanks for the visit, you two!!!!

*waving from Canada*

Love that 'book'. What a super ideas.

I had no idea there was an Anne of Green Gables fabric line out there. They were my daughter's favorite books and videos when she was young!

Might need some of that fabric.
