A Fun Christmas

We (my husband, 2 kids, one partner and 2 others) went to Harrison Hot Springs for 2 nights.

It was a beautiful drive there.  We took the back road (instead of speeding down the highway).  The sun was shining, there was snow on the mountains … just beautiful.  We ate, walked through the town, sat in the hot springs, swam, ate, sat in the hot springs, ate, took naps, ate, laughed a lot, and had a grand time!


When I got home, I opened my gift from my cousin.  (There are about 25/26 of us and we draw names each year).  Terry, my quilting cousin had my name this year.  She blogs at TLC Quilts – Sew what’s next?  The picture on the left is what she sent me: Isn’t it perfect?

A spool of glide thread … I already know I love this thread!  And it’s a different colour than what I have … perfect!  The snips … so handy … and Angela Walter’s book … so inspiring!  I can’t wait to soak up every word that Angela has written!  Thank you Terry!


And surprise.  She sent my husband a gift.  Said she couldn’t wait until she had his name in the draw (which could be in 25 years or next year … one never knows).  This is what she sent him!  We had a good laugh!

I’ve glanced through the book … can’t wait to have some time to read it!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Happy Quilting!

  2. Hi Gail! Aww, Terry is a good egg and she made excellent choices for both you and your husband. I haven’t tried Glide thread yet, but I have three spools to give it a go. Happy New Year to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Roseanne,
      Yes, Terry has always had excellent taste!
      She told me about Glide thread when I visited her in the Spring. I did buy a spool at Quilt Canada in early June & have used it on a few quilts. It is a lovely thread!
      Thank you for the New Year wishes! And the same to you!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
