Yes, it was WELL time this week! They chose the most gorgeous day to do it too! The beginning of the week was very cloudy with minor drizzles while the geothermal system work was concluding.

There isn't much to see when they drill a well although the equipment is impressive.

Lolah met two new friends on Wednesday. Marsha and Jeanette were here to work on their beautiful manly quilt, a project they're donating as a fundraiser. They took turns, each quilting a row while the other supervised.  

I just love that brown paisley border!! The blue in the quilt top matches really well with this new wide backing (now in stock in several colors as well as white tone on tones).

They chose Glide Vegas Gold thread and Vanilla Cream pantograph, a great combination!

Now this is concentration...  One must remember to stand up straight so one doesn't end up sore the next day.  And breathe!! I may have to start offering some yoga sessions for clients before and after Lolah!!

Oh such a handsome quilt... well done ladies!! I'm sure the group you're giving this to will  be thrilled with your efforts! Congratulations on a job well done!

I must say that backing is gorgeous!! :)

Lolah's schedule is filling up... make sure you call us to pencil you in if you want your quilt done before the rush of the holidays. And remember, if it's your second time on Lolah, (or third etc...) the learning curve and prep time are greatly reduced. You'll see what I mean; you'll become more comfortable with the process and your quilting will be more amazing each time. Imagine those unquilted tops turned into finished projects; some could even be gifts!! It's SO liberating! 

Next available date with Lolah is on November 5th! Madelaine, Susan, Marie or Holly will be available to book your time. Make sure you call them. YES... Spruce It Up Quilt Shop will remain open while Lorette is away! 

The Nova Scotia Fiber Arts Festival is running October 14-18th in Amherst Nova Scotia. It is a not-to-be-missed event!! Unfortunately, I will miss this show... however, if you're traveling to Amherst and want to stop in either on your way to or returning from, (or perhaps you're there to attend day-classes and want to come visit the shop in the evening) please call the shop at 506-538-7888... we can open earlier or stay open late for you! We can also accommodate large groups with advance notice (we have staff ready and willing to make this happen)... yes there is enough room in the yard to turn that bus or RV! I hope you all enjoy that show... I'm looking forward to hearing all about it! So pass the word along... come visit us while you're in the area!

I will be available by email but remember I can only pick up emails with WI-FI... heaven knows if that is available on the barge!

Our first morning before departing from Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic to cycle along the Danube last summer... BEFORE the record floods! 

Let's hope no one shows up in Berlin with a bad cold... never fun for that person and even less for the rest of us!

Auf Wiedersehen!
