As you know,

if you read this blog, I have donated different wall hangings to Wellspring which is a support group for cancer - Carma Developers here in Calgary has built a wonderful house for Wellspring called Carma House. I have been asked to attend the grand opening next week and will be donating 'Moose Country' to their new house. I will be speaking few words and I am honored indeed to be able to donate to this wonderful place. The new house is awesome and will enable the staff to help patients, support
families and friends. T here is a wonderful Art room and I hope to be able to help them next year in the art room.

I will let you know how the opening day goes. Our Mayor and other dignitaries will be there for the ceremonies. Wellspring does so much to assist cancer patients and their families . Carma house is absolutely beautiful, with wonderful gardens, and lots of room. LaZboy furniture stores here in Canada, donated all the furniture on the main floor. They have been wonderfully active in assisting the Quilt Project for breast cancer throughout the years.

I am leaving on Saturday morning for our Big Sky retreat which is held north of Calgary at Old's College. This is an annual event and it is wonderful to see all our friends. Most of our members are from Western Canada but we also have a dear friend from Atlanta, another from the boston area and 3 or 4 from Idaho.

Two weeks later I will be attending the Western retreat which started in Strathmore ,Alberta ,9 years ago - it is another annual retreat. I will post some pictures of each of them when I get home.

I finished two more miniatures this week. I do enjoy doing them and am getting quite a collection. I think the will end up on a wall at Wellspring but haven't decided for sure.

Well that is it for the day. I hope to post again before I leave for Olds. If not, I hope you all have a great weekend. Shirley
