Last week, we spent our time on a houseboat, cruising the Trent-Severn Waterway.  What a wonderful, relaxing holiday that was.

The scenery was beautiful: lovely water scenes; lots of different birds; gorgeous sunsets; and trees just begging to be photographed.  I took lots of photos, in the hope that sometime I will stitch a memory of this trip.

I watched the scenery, took photos, read, knitted, and stitched.  My favourite place to stitch in the summer used to be on the deck with a cold drink.  Now it's my second favourite, having been nudged out by the bliss of stitching out on the houseboat's deck.

I'm stitching the Maple Leaf ornaments from the Winnipeg fundraising calendar. In the fall, I am going to a nursing reunion in the UK, and I thought they'd be the perfect little gift for my friends from days gone by.
You can order your calendar from the web-site (  There is a pattern for each month and they are all neat.

Before we left for our trip, I ordered Machine Embroidered Seascapes by Alison Holt.  What a wonderful book.  I'm hoping it will inspire me to stitch a waterscape.  If you enjoy free motion embroidery, I would recommend this book.

I'm busy putting together my box of goodies to pass on to incoming president Joyce Gill.  The last two years have flown by, and were an incredible experience - one I would heartily recommend to other EAC members.  Please think about serving on the EAC Board.

I look forward to two years as Past President, knowing that EAC will thrive under Joyce's leadership.

...and where do YOU read EC magazine?
