Road Trip

After my son went back home after our visit, I had a few days and was able to go on a road trip to visit a wonderful friend of mine in a place called Vulcan. 

Vulcan is a small farming community south east of Calgary where my husband I used to pastor a small congregation of wonderful people.  

It was in that small town that our children were born and I formed some life long friendships.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am the richest person on earth.  I have the most wonderful friends who are always there in good times and in the bad times.

When you are in Vulcan, you must visit the Star Trek display and have your picture taken as one of the crew members.

Clearly, I am looking too happy to be a crew member!  
Must make a note to be more stoic next time!

I love the prairies . . . they speak to me.  Maybe it's the open spaces and beautiful green grasses,

the gorgeous sunsets,

 or the yellow fields of canola.  


I'm not sure, but I feel at home there.

While on my trip, I dropped off two of my quilts to be quilted and I can hardly wait to get them back.  
This one is for my daughter in London.

And the other is for a house warming gift for myself.  This is by far my favourite quilt and I'm sure will remain so.  The colours are so vibrant.  I can hardly wait to get it back.

Lastly, while I was down it Vulcan it was nice to show off my quilt that I did at a retreat a couple of years ago.

Thanks for visiting and going along on my road trip with me.

Hope you are all having a wonderful, warm and special summer!

  1. We traveled to Calgary a couple years ago, and I was amazed at the canola fields. They went forever! Lovely quilts you have done.
