Quilting Finds in Victoria

Back from my jaunt to Victoria . . . what a breath of fresh air!

Got to a couple of my favorite haunts while I was in town.

One being Russell Books on Fort Street.
They always have a wonderful selection of new and used books.
Found a couple of used quilting books that are in perfect condition.
I have been enjoying looking through them and getting some ideas.

I also found the Satin Moon Quilt Shop also on Fort Street.
I found the store a little smaller than their previous location but none the less, found a few gems in there.  Didn't buy any fabric this time though - just a couple of patterns.

They are friendly and have a nice selection of Asian prints as wells as children's fabrics.
All in all a nice way to spend some time.
Everything was so green and lush in Victoria . . .

Flowers are already in bloom

Leaves are on the trees

People are enjoying the sunshine


And only a few drops of rain on my last day.

I had the privilege of enjoying a great cup of Java at my son's cafe called Heist.
It's a beautiful cafe on Courtney Street in downtown Victoria.
They do Americanos, Cappuccinos, iced coffees and various other kinds of coffee.

My son is very passionate about coffee and it was nice to see him in his element.

Graham treated me royally while I was visiting him.

One of these days, spring will come to us in Alberta. . .
. . .until then, I'll be thinking of my trip to Victoria.
Have a great day everyone!
