Once Upon a Time, September 17, 2023

Once upon a time, in the land of the east coast of Nova Scotia, a hurricane named Lee, was to visit on the weekend.  He was to appear as a hurricane for some Atlantic provinces and for other provinces, a tropical storm.  Whichever coat he wore, he out stayed his welcome, stayed for supper, the night, and breakfast! Most provinces fared better than expected. Always can be so much worse.

The Northport Loopers have postponed their hook-in from tomorrow, September 18th to Monday, September 25th, 2023.  Hope to see you all...

September Begins, September 09, 2023


September is starting off here in Nova Scotia, very warm and high humidity.

We were able to hook on the deck at The Lady of Hope, a...

The Pure Joy of Rug Gatherings & Friends, August 27, 2023

I had missed writing my blog last Sunday as I was in Newfoundland at Rug School.  It was everything I had hoped! The above photo is of the Table Mountains when you land off the boat at Port-aux Basques.  Breath taking.  The people were fabulous, saw one moose thankfully not near the highway. We had a car load, hardly room for a person in the back.

At rug school we had a kitchen...

Winds of Change, August 13, 2023

Change is inevitable, some of us embrace it, others run the opposite direction.  Do you like when the seasons change? I saw a flock of geese this morning.  How is that possible as this is usually a sign that fall is coming but it is only the middle of August!  Children grow up, people get older, a new rug pattern needs to be started, how do we handle these changes?  The human being is very adaptable to changes as history has shown.

I have been working on a couple more mug...
