|The "Highway" to our farm on Monday morning|
South Saskatchewan roads took a beating this past week. I think that this is the worst this highway has been in my eighteen years of driving on it. It took six full days for the highway to get back to it's normally pot-holey self! On Friday my husband, myself and our three boys braved the ice-coated roads and headed to Regina to see Eric Church in concert. He is a talented, talented entertainer. We could feel the heat from those flames from quite a ways away!

And lastly, we had a guild get-together today to work on our guild banner. We wanted to make a banner for our own upcoming quilt show in Torquay this June, but also for the Makoshika Quilt Show in Glendive, MT, USA which we have been asked to show our quilts in. This show is scheduled for the 26 & 27 of April 2013. Christa was able to source a book she thought we could use. It is called Down in the Valley by Cori Derksen and Mrya Harder. It is a book of paper-pieced houses, trees, churches, schools and such. Most members picked a house or building, then we raided our stashes and got to work. Thanks, Brenda for your book.
