"New" Friends and New Additions

Yesterday Grandma's quilting group went to go see the Canadian cultural quilt. Mom, Courtney, and I joined them. It is beautiful! They had a representative of each ethnic group make a quilt patch, and then they embroidered the country's name in its native language on the left, and in English on the right. The background for the patches is stripes of fabric organized like the rainbow. It's something like 147 feet long. Quite a piece of work.

I also re-found a friend! I met Rebecca last summer when she toured Courtney and I around U of C, but she came with her mom to the Glenbow museum as well. Unfortunately, she's going to Scotland for three years to teach in Edenbourough, but there's always email. We had lots of fun yesterday, roaming around the exhibits. She reminds me a lot of Ankita :)
Last but not least, *sigh* my mom gave in to my sisters begging (not that I'm complaining...) and we have a new addition to the family. Meet Kiki.

Wow! I am honoured to have made it onto your blog! Soon I'll be world famous! The feelings and fun time shared are mutual!

I look forward to many more adventures to come.
