So yesterday morning I picked up Maggie, (my daughter) at the ferry terminal and we proceeded to have a lovely day together….we shopped, talked, had lunch, talked, shopped, talked, shopped some more and then it was time for me to drop her off…..time went by too quickly. Her boyfriend, Toby was already in Victoria as he was in a hockey tournament….but not your usual hockey tournament….Toby plays…..
UNDERWATER HOCKEY!! They all have little 8 inch sticks, wear flippers and little team coloured bathing hats and they go under water and push the puck around….this is what the spectators see….a lot of splashing. (Come to think of it, we were the only two in the stands!) Kind of reminded me of sharks going after their prey….At the end of the game the two teams line up and slap wet hands ….very civilized! Great fun….but don’t think that I am trading in my needle and thimble for fins and stick….no siree sir! Makes quilting look very tame and VERY enjoyable, don’t ‘cha think? I’m sticking with quilting….how about you?
IT’S A GOOD THING~
Of course I stopped at a few Garage Sales on my way to the ferry….it’s NOT me, it’s my car! It just automatically stops! What can I do? So my BIG find today was this big bag of velvets- lots of different, lovely colours.
Oh, I am SO going to make a crazy quilt now!! Did you see the sticker on the bag- $3.00! (happy dance down the driveway!) It’s a good thing!!
Give-Away Spotted!! The Old Farmhouse Gatherings is having an awesome Halloween give-away – a huge basket full of Halloween goodies- too much stuff to list!! You will have to go over and have a peak for yourself! Sure wish this huge basket was coming to my house….
Have a super sunny Sunday and Happy Quilting!!
