Good Monday morning to you. Here in Calgary it’s the usual, snowy, wintery weather. There are virtually NO signs of Spring – and I mean none!
This past weekend, I was overyjoyed to travel to Invermere, B.C. – a three hour drive from our home. As we travelled, it was apparent that the temperature was rising as we drove. Woo hoo! It was so lovely and warm and Spring-like in Invermere this weekend – people were actually on the golf course and walking around in shirt sleeves. 7 degrees Celsius is pretty nice when you are used to a miserable and nasty -10, without the wind chill.
On Saturday, I walked and visited my favourite shops. The town was deserted and quiet and so very nice. I went into a bookstore that I usually visit when in town – Dave’s Book Bar – and browsed to my heart’s content. Of particular interest is all the quilting magazines the shop stocks. Much to my surprise, I came across the most recent issue of Generation Q magazine!
How delightful! I can’t find this quilting magazine in big-City Calgary at Chapters or Indigo, but I find it in a small and out-of-the-way place in a very small town. I read it from cover to cover and loved it.
Several years ago, I had the pleasure of working with Melissa Maher of Quilter’s Home magazine, who together with Jake Finch started Generation Q magazine. Melissa and Jake have worked very hard at their new project and it shows in their work.
If you can find a copy, pick it up!
Till later…take care
