Blocks 106-108 Smoke and Fire

Fire and smoke. Smoke and fire. British Columbia and now Alberta forests are on fire. The smoke is thick in Calgary. Fine pieces of ash can be found on outdoor objects. Not a great way to get back to reality after the Stampede. Went to hike at Grassi Lakes in Canmore AB this morning, smoke not as thick, but I went shopping instead at The Sugar Pine quilt shop in Canmore so all was not lost.

I was so surprised, I'm sure you will be as well, to find out that an all time favourite cartoon of mine is Canadian.  
Unfortunately, I wasn't surprised to learn about the situation that a young Canadian had to go thru to get an education. The fact is that these situations are still happening in Canada.

Week 35 Blocks 103-105 Stampede Time

In Calgary, it is said the seasons are winter and Stampede. This means cold and either hot and thunderstorms or both. This year it is hot hot hot. Sizzling hot especially beside the flapjack and sausage cook tops. I'm on the Stampede breakfast caravan committee. Fortunately, I'm usually in kids zone in the making rope, lassoing wooden bulls, tossing rings on the wooden animals, milking fake cows, sitting on saddles, planting sunflower seeds or around the pony ride corral. If you are at one of the malls that Team A caters stop by to say Yahoo!

Week 35 - 7/10ths of the way. More paper piecing, Yahoo! Fortunately or maybe unfortunately this is the last of it.

This is the last week of availability of Block 96 that had the revisions.

Helen, Lois and Helen either worked or retired by the sea. In any case, they all were masters in their area.
