You would think I was away for a month I have written so much about my visit to Doris. My friend Katherine told me once, “You don’t need a week in Cancun, a day in the city does you.” I don’t really know as I have never had a week south but I do enjoy a day away visiting. It feeds me.
When I arrived at Doris’s she said, “What would you like to do?” and I said, ” Whatever you want.” She said, “I want t take you to meet Jane who just moved from England and started Riverport Studio in Petit Rivere. She is my friend.” It sounded great to me. And it wasJane’s studio was filled with wool, yes…yes..I bought some…shoes for the shoe man. She was lovely and warm and there was even a rug hooking group meeting there.
From there I drove Doris home, gave Ron the coconut cream pie we bought him…he was eating it before I left and said to Doris…”Should I stop in Lunenburg or Mahone Bay on the way home?” She said Mahone Bay, for sure.
I was so glad I did because I got to visit both Carole Harvey Clarke and Christine Little in their beautiful studios. And they were beautiful and yes …I bought wool. And if I went back tomorrow I would buy more wool. I am a wool glutton.
I was really impressed with both places, how well kept and beautiful they were.
Christine was funny, she keeps a blog, where she tells stories and “rants ” much like I do. She had a great story about a police chief and three pairs of panties that she told me and has based a kit on. We just had a nice visit, told a few stories, her dog sniffed me…you know how that goes and I got to meet her husband and son. She has a family run studio I think because her husband said his sister in law was upstairs.
It was just a great day.
Then I went to Suttles and Seawinds and bought a beautiful linen jackets which I have worn five times since last week. I am about to put it on now gain and go to Donny Miller’s youth group auction….so I am off, on the run
