Another project finished

 I have been back from St. John's NFL for over a week now.
But there will not be any pictures till after Thanksgiving. I took Jeanette's small camera and I need her to get the pictures on my computer.
My trunk show went o.k I think. It is different when you do not have a vehicle available. I'm used to filling the SUV up. This time it all had to go in a carry-on and a suitcase with some room left for clothes.
We did not do as much as we wanted to. Jonas did not feel well and by Thursday evening we took him to the Emergency department of the Children's Hospital. He had the croup and was a sick little boy. But we were impreseed with the care he got there. We were instructed to take him outside in the cold as much as possble on Friday and since that was a cool day, it worked our o.k. We walked and walked and walked some more, up and down the streets.By Saturday he felt much better, but I could feel the back of my legs!. So after 2 visits I still have not seen as much as I would have liked. I guess I will have to go back!Last Tuesday I was in Kincardine guild. This was the frist time I taught my sashiko sampler workshop. I had 15 very eager ladies and I had a very enjoyable time. AS you can see in the picture they worked hard.
This afternoon I finished putting the binding on the baby quilt. It was getting time, since the baby can arrive anytime now.
It all worked out well, but machine quilting is still hard on my back and shoulders.
Next project is getting ready for the African themed quilt project for the Mennonite Relief Sale.
I have around 30 ladies from our guild  signed up to come to my place for one of the 3 days
I have set aside.
I don't call it workshops. They can look over all the supplies I have, take what they need, look through my magazines and books and I will help them with whatever they ask me.
I will take pictures as we go.
Last week the weather was great. Laurence combined the white(or navy) beans and has started the soybeans.
Tomorrow he plans to plant winterwheat till the beans are again dry enough to combine. Yes, we did get some rain  last night, just enough to have to stop harvesting..
