When I was hand-quilting this quilt I noticed a little spot where the fabric has frayed.  Any suggestions how to fix this little boo boo???

What are you working on?

I am working madly away at a quilt for my dear hubby. He is quite sad because I've made quilts for every other member of our family except him. I hope I'll have it finished by Christmas. I just have a small amount of hand stitching left and then add the binding. In the back left corner of the photo

are my baskets of knitting and crochet--hats, tablecloth, socks, dishcloths. The two pages of tiny typing on the desk is my to do list. My dear hubby made my quilting box from some scraps of wood many, many, many years ago.

So what are you working on?

Trekking in Toronto . . .

Hal had a short layover in Toronto on November 7 so I drove up to spend some time with him . . . letterboxing of course.  Our first find was Spirit of the Forest


We then picked up my son and took him out to breakfast in a little place near Pape Street to celebrate.  Tim always knows how to find an inexpensive breakfast restaurant wherever he lives.  You could tell he was a regular when the staff were all calling him "hon" and they gave him a huge slab of apple pie and ice cream complimentary for his birthday "cake".  We dropped Tim off at work which just happened to be very near High Park.

Follow the Dream.

Ontario Stock Yards.

We had a tricky time finding Grenadier Pond.  Hal had to "accidentally" drop his walking stick a couple of times to locate it . . . LOL . . .

We warmed up with a snack in the Grenadier Restaurant and then I dropped Hal off at work and made the long drive home. 

I love letterboxing!  What a great way to spend some time together.
