Not the most flattering angle of any of us, but a selfie from yesterday.  I think Sybil and Todd look great!  Peter does too, but remind me to not squash my face up like that next time!  It makes me look like I have thre double chins, LOL.  I promise you I do not!  Anyways we really enjoyed our visit together. It was great fun!  We feasted on the second tortiere I had made plus veg, and leftover Christmas goodies like Christmas pudding, mince pies, etc.  It was so much fun finally meeting Sybil in person.  I truly appreciated her coming all the way up here to meet us, and Peter driving her.  Thank you both so much!  Fun, fun day! Now I must make it down to Box!

And I do too! 



  1. Looks like you LOVED your visit:) How fun..a Christmas Visit:) I bet you all enjoyed being together so much..lots of neat finds Marie and as always thanks for sharing them all..:)

  2. Loved seeing all of you together and finally putting a face to Peter was nice too as I used to read of him on Sybil's blog. Thanks for sharing !

  3. So many fun things to make. It boggles my mind. So glad to see pic of you with Sybil and Peter. Glad you had a nice visit. 💕💕💕

  4. Great minds think alike; I had come across the Coffee Shop wrap but the kit that was being wold was out of stock. A quick trip to my local Michaels and there I found a Caron Cake yarn that matched the gauge and it was on sale. I am a quilter not a knitter but this appealed to me so and I jumped on the project. I am a third of the way along so should get it finished quickly. All the best in the New Year!

  5. We did have a great visit Monique! You are welcome, I like to share! Xoxo

    Thanks Pam! It was so much fun! You’re welcome! Xo

    I liked the storage ideas. I really like the crocheted dish coths. I wanted to do some for Christmas this year; maybe next.
    Loved the crocheted Irish Crown; so cute.
    So happy you were able to meet and be with a dear friend; loved the photo of the 4 of you! I do love your smiling face.
