In late August, Beatrice and I took Muriel and off we went quilt shop hopping. We spend the day in the Kingston area. We visited with our sweet friend, Rebecca and went for lunch at a great deli. Rebecca and Muriel get acquainted.

Shortly after, my youngest son and his family came for a visit to Trenton. Our DIL and grandkids had never seen the view of our city from the top of Mount Pelion. We took the morning and did the tour. Of course, Muriel had to come along. I wanted to introduce her to our beautiful waterfront city.
This cannon has been there since the 1800's. When I was a junior in high school, I belonged to the History Club and one of our projects was to scrape and refresh the paint on this cannon. I wonder how many coats of paint have been added since then.

Our next stop was the Bleasdell Boulder. There is not another rock any where near this size for 26 miles but this monster is in the bush all by itself. It had apparently been rolled there by a glacier.

Oh and stitching. Yes I did a bit of stitching.
Here is my finished Ursula Michael "Let's Visit Canada" on 32 count white lugana with DMC 321.
I LOVE it.
I am not sure if I will frame it or quilt it.
