A little gift

A lady in the southern part of New Brunswick bought my ticket for the Kaffe Fassett talk that I was unable to make this past weekend in Amherst, NS. I thought it was great that I could sell the ticket; she thanked me by sending me two fat quarters in my favourite colors.
How nice is that? I didn't know there was a quilt shop in a place called Port Elgin called Spruce It Up Quilting. I don't think it would be too far off the highway that one would travel to go to PEI.

I haven't done much walking lately due to my knee and my hip so I haven't brought home many little bits from the trail. The Mosquitos have been pretty thick there anyway. Last night though, I made a little jaunt on my bike around the subdivision and I found a clump of dogbane which I just discovered last year. There was a lot of it so I couldn't resist bringing a tiny bunch home.

When it came time to finish up my lunch and pick up a pencil though, I went for a couple of tiny seashells and an old bottle cap. I almost could use a magnifying glass!

You certainly needed a pick-me-up after missing Kaffe Fassett! Thank you for showing the dog-bane flowers, I didn't know they grow so near to where I live. And your drawings are as lovely as ever. Hope your knee is better!
