Last night we had Rainbows!  Two of them......

And this morning.......

Welcome to the Great White North!!

It is October 21st and we have snow!  Granted it probably won't stay, but really.....SNOW in October!

These are the days when I am grateful that my office has no windows.  It helps to just ignore what is happening in the world around me while I work.  People in pain need me to have a clear and peaceful mind so I don't add any negative to to their current state.  Speaking of work, I will be travelling to Sudbury this weekend to take part in a conference on Massage Therapy and Cancer.  I really need the latest update on how our treatments should be handled regarding cancer patients.  Things have changed so much in the last 18 years that I am happy to have an update on new procedures.

On the sewing front, I am chugging along on Christmas gifts for the kids, but I can't post them because they read my blog.  I am making my son an item from the new Stitch Magazine from interweave.  They are great Magazines with many projects to try.  If you haven't seen it you should take a look!

There is a great Giveaway happening at Green Fairy quilts, you should run over and check out her site.  She has a great shop and a very cool video about their trip to Romania to deliver 50 donated quilts!! (They also donated food and school supplies!)  I love the generosity I am seeing all over from crafters of all sorts.  It is so inspiring.

Until Wednesday Calls is a great blog I have been following and she is doing a craft along.  I am very behind!  But I did finish a BBQ apron for my hubby in sail boat and wave fabric, because well...we sail (when it is not snowing!)  So I do have a picture of that to show you:
The pattern is the reversible apron pattern from The Paisley Pincushion.
I had to modify a little bit because my hubby needs the ties to be a clip, but the pattern was easy and well written.
Well that is about it for now, I better get off to work now or I will be late!!
Have a great Thursday!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your's is very nice. Don't you just hate it when it snows too soon. We're into Fall right now but it won't be long before the snow flies.
