After the museum visit, we walked around the downtown area and looked at the wonderful old homes and their gardens that were visible from the street. Then lunch at a local restaurant on Trout Lake where after dessert, Debra double dared my DH to lick his plate ... which he did ... twice. Oh my, how embarrassing. I will never go to a restaurant with those two again! :o)
Last Tuesday, Debra and I drove back to Toronto and the following day we car pooled down to Fonthill, Ontario for a trunk show that was being held at the Quilting Bee. Who did the trunk show? Well, Edyta Sitar from Laundry Basket Quilts. How lucky we were to obtain tickets for her trunk show!!!
So, without further ado, here are photos of that wonderful day:
Here are some of the ladies that we car pooled with. There were ten of us that went down in two vehicles. If the traffic is good, it is roughly a 2 hr. drive from Toronto to Fonthill. Debra is in the front center. You know, there is one in every crowd!
Can you see the amount of quilts piled up on that gorgeous iron bed? We knew that we were in for a real treat.
So, what a wonderful experience that was! Oh dear, I forsee new quilts being made and my UFO's will be taking a back seat. Good thing that I made an effort to get some of those projects made into tops before her trunk show! :o)
Lastly, thank you to Debra for driving me to Toronto and to hosting me in your home. Your DH and Cheech are delightful companions. AND thank you for gifting me with a surprise birthday gift. I have already thumbed through Scrappy Firework Quilts a number of times now and it will be well worn by the time I'm finished with it.
Have a great day!
