Festival of Quilts, Calgary

I didn’t have a whole lot of time at the Festival of Quilts to see absolutely everything, but I got a fair number of breaks to wander around considering I was at work! Heritage Park is a historical village reconstruction of what the West used to look like, It has a steam train (and paddleboat); […]

Quilt and Stitch Village

It sounds like the start of a joke, an Anglian, a Bristolian, a Yorkshireman, a Canadian and a Scot walk into a racecourse… By the way isn’t it time there was a non-gender specific word for someone who comes from Yorkshire? I think so. So yesterday Ange, Reene, Susan, Katy and I went on the […]
