Newsletter New Year 2017
I know you have not heard from me in a long while, it has been a crazy busy 2 years. I have done more shows, retreats and traveling than ever,
but the retreats and shows are coming to an end. I still have 6 shows and 4 retreats for 2017 and 1 last retreat in April 2018. I will do shows into 2018 as long as I have inventory. I am not ordering any new fabric and haven’t for several months. What I have now is it, but there is a lot and a new snowman BOM I just finished called ‘ALL MY FAVORITE MEN ARE SNOWMEN’.
I AM RETIRING FOR SURE. I have made so many new friends and welcomed lots of old friends back over the years, it has been such a blessing.
Since you have heard from me I have done a 6 week driving trip to Alaska with my friend Maryann. We did all 10 national parks and had to fly into 5 of them. It was a fabulous trip. My new favorite mode of transportation is the sea plane. I have now completed all the national parks except American Samoa (not doing that one).
My future travels include staying in all 8 (of about 200) of the remaining WOOD FRAME hotels left from around the early 1900’s. I have stayed in several and have reservations for the rest. I am also doing the same thing for the 6 chateaus left in Canada. I have a trip planned for 2018 driving coast to coast in Canada. In May I flew to Florida and drove up the eastern sea board into Canada and Prince Edward Island and home of Ann of Green Gables (her house is there, charming area). In the fall of this year I am driving to the east coast and seeing some of the things I missed last May and adding some others. I am a huge movie fan and love visiting the actual locations of my favorite movies. In the fall this includes 2 plantations in Louisiana that are now B&B’s. I will also see my son, grand kids and my soon to be 1st great grandson. They all live in TX except 2 grandsons in KY. In July I am going to Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and Victoria Island again and staying in 2 of the chateaus (Banff Springs and Empress)
