Hi, I just have to share this with you.  Yesterday, I went home early (my son was coming over for supper) and on the way back at 6:30 to help out with a class I was listening to the CBC.  This fellow was going on about two horrible run ins he'd had with wild turkeys.  Well, I'd never heard of anything like it - the poor guy had had one of them take off his side mirror and then a couple of months later, while driving north on hwy. 38 had had one fly into his car (he had all the windows open because it was a beautiful day in June).  It hit him in the back of the head and landed on the back seat and died.  But, the bird didn't just pass away - oh no, he exploded, filling the car with feathers.  The poor guy almost lost control of the car but, he did manage to pull over and stop.  He was so mad that he grabbed the dead bird out of the back seat and kicked it into the nearest field.  He obviously wasn't thinking about food at the time - he could have taken it home for dinner!   That in itself was funny enough - but, when I got back to the store Debbi was on the phone with her husband - I could hear him yelling - Debbi, getting annoyed with him kept asking if he'd called the police.
I was intrigued!  It turns out that her husband, driving their niece home to Westport had had a run-in with a... wild turkey!  The turkey had taken out a head light and dented the hood of their SUV (over $1,000 damage).  But, Debbi's husband was thinking because he stopped the vehicle and grabbed the dead bird and brought it home to eat!!
The co-incidence was too much!!

Good Friday

What a beautiful sunny day - I almost forgot what the sun was like!!  Having a small Easter dinner tonight (all is well, I'm not cooking).  My family is too busy for me this year - it's great because it gives me time to sew - which these days is a luxury!  I hope you all have a great holiday weekend - we're open tomorrow and Monday - drop in for a visit, have a treat and crack and egg for a discount (15% - 40%)!
Just a little side note: My daughter, son-in-law and I went to vote at one of the advanced polls (had to leave because the cue was too long) - but, my daughter was telling me that my grandson told her not to vote for Alicia Gordon because he didn't like her signs - funny how kids think!!

Guild meeting

I had a great time at the Napanee Quilter's Guild last night - what an amazing (large) group of quilter's.  Their  Show & Tell was inspiring!!  I spoke about needles, thread and batting.   I dont know about anyone else but, I had a great time.
It's Easter weekend and we're closed this Good Friday but, open Saturday and Monday - drop in and crack an egg for a discount.

We've just posted the Quilt & Stitch Spring Newsletter - there are one or two typo's - the most important being, our Spring Open House is Saturday, May 7, 2011 not 2008 - hope to see you there - don't forget to bring something in for "Show & Tell"!
I finally remembered to post the pictures from our April Mystery Block of the Month Club.
We've added a new feature - you can subscribe to our blog and receive an email every time we post something - a great bonus!!

I'm back!!

Poor me, back from the first holiday I've had in years; back to cold and rain and snow - oh, wait - that's what I left in Florida - except that we had tornado's and lots of lightening (they counted over 200 strikes in less than 4 hours) instead of snow!
Things are hoping at Quilt & Stitch - I am desperately trying to finish the class schedule - we have some exciting stuff for you this spring.
I'll keep you posted - this Saturday is our Mystery Block of the Month -I'll post pictures of the block early next week.
Keeping you in stitches, Marg
P.S. Let me know if you like the new font!!
