Chasing a Fun Tradition...

Every year since 1971, Nova Scotia donates a tree to Boston for their holiday season.  It is a thank you to the people of Boston from the people of Nova Scotia for the help Boston provided during the Halifax Explosion many years ago.  

Last year, I was all exited and ready to go see the 2013 tree to Boston go by on the Highway, when my plans fell apart, as the tree left via Digby.  This year, the tree is not only going by Amherst on its exit from the province, it's STOPPING at the Visitor Information Centre in Fort Lawrence for an official pit stop! 

I'm closing the shop early ( at 3pm) Tuesday to go see the tree.  It sounds 'sappy', but I've never seen the tree and I really think it's an important part of our Nova Scotia history and a great tradition.  The tree is scheduled to arrive between 3/3:30 pm.

Meanwhile, the table top using Halloween squares has morphed into enough squares for a lap size quilt.

Some Ghastlies by Alexander Henry have been fussy cut into the project as well.

And just to keep you up to date, Atelier (3 Sisters) by Moda have arrived...

There are some beautiful paisleys in this fabric line.
