6 days ago we arrived in Canada. After 2 nights in Vancouver we caught a ferry over to the island for 6 nights staying at Tigh Na Mara resort. We are enjoying exploring this beautiful island, beach, forest, mountains and waterfalls . Did I forget the quilt shop 6 minutes away? Sweet Pea quilting is owned by Marilyn McGurran and we have been messaging since I discovered her business. Not only does she sell gorgeous fabrics, patterns and threads(Glide! ) but she offers a longarm service supported by the ably talented Gail. We chatted and shared stories and generally had a lovely time. Canada is so different to home but patchwork and quilting is a common language .
