Mr. CQT and I were happy to hear that the town was holding its annual Car Show last weekend, and made a trip down to see them. While we were wandering around, I looked for Chinook Fabrics, and found it in a tiny temporary location in an office building.
Well, I did a little shopping, and the clerk invited me to enter a contest. I'm always happy to do that, and got a phone call this week to tell me that I had won!
So, it was back to High River today, to pick up my winnings - this fun apron!
I did a little more shopping. I needed backing for my Maple Sugar quilt, and the wonderful ladies at Chinook Fabrics helped me find the perfect fabric.
The colours match the top perfectly - and it was even 25% off!
On the way home, I stopped in to buy this "goddess gift".
Several of us at work turned 50 in the same year - a few years ago. We decided to celebrate together, and called ourselves goddesses. We all wore tiaras and went out to dinner after work one night. We had a fabulous time finding out how much we had in common. We've since introduced others to our goddess club, as they reach that magic age. I just found out that we are gaining a new member, as of this weekend, so went tiara shopping for her!
PS - my kids give me that "Mom's gone nuts" look when they hear about us going to dinner in tiaras. But, when you're a goddess, you have to put up with a little ridicule from the younger generation!
