I can’t believe that it is September 22nd already. It seems like just yesterday I started another year of school. But seriously where did the month go?
It has been a busy month – I think I say that about every month now that I think of it. None the less, it has been busy.
My friend Alisha got married and I was the MOH (maid of honor). The wedding was held on a Saturday evening at the Lougheed House in Calgary. It is 100 year old house with lovely grounds.
I’ve also spent some time on the weekends marking – always a good time. (YUCK!)
Some of the girls at school decided to have a RETRO day. We all wore our dresses that we got at Blame Betty back in August.
My brother also celebrated his 30th birthday. We had a great family dinner. AJ was a bit surprised by the cake, as it said, Happy 60th Birthday.
Just this week we took the grade 8 & 9s to Camp Chestermere for some getting to know time. Or for some time for the teachers to fool around a bit.
During the time at Chestermere the kids play a series of wide games. I love watching the wide games – I personally HATE playing wide games, but I love watching them.
The only real sewing or quilting I’ve done is prepping my Stitch Sampler which I am will be teaching at my guild in November. It features the basic stitches the most hand stitchers use. I’m pretty pleased with it – I think two colors would have been striking though – next time.
