Moving Right Along

Well, September and so far October have been busy, busy! I am ready for a vacation!

This was our 15th Retreat, which happens every two years. We have been doing this for 30 years. After being at the helm for 13 of the 15 Retreats I am officially retiring! I am so proud of the Retreat and what we have accomplished.

And in Mahone Bay it is scarecrow season! Time for the annual Scarecrow Festival and Dolly Quilter is back on duty!

Here she is on loan to the Mahone Bay Quilters Guild, we had a "Pop-Up" quilt show on Friday for some quilters who were on a "Fall Colours Quilt Cruise". She is back now on Orchard St looking gorgeous!

I love the colour in Mahone Bay! This is the Fisherman's Daughter B&B. Our scarecrows will be up around town, close to 150 I think, for another couple of weeks. Do come and see them!
