Shopping in Cambridge, and bellydance

I went to to Cambridge on Sunday with Jennie to hunt down some fabric at Lens Mills

I alwo went to see my family, whom I havent seen for almost a year (having no car will do that)

The cat is out of the bag on what I am working on for family gifts, since we were all in agreement that we should have a small exchange of gifts now since there's no guarentee that I will be able to see them (cause transportation is really tricky when you have no car and neither does anyone else)

I still have to take photos of a few of my projects. But I do have at least one to show you.

I made this pair of tubesocks for mom


The other projects I have completed, or have yet to complete but they know about it (or accidently forgot)

Fingerless gloves for my sister
A tetris quilt for my dad
and another knitted gift for my brother(cause it hasnt been delivered to him yet)

In terms of my fabric finds, I found an awesome celestial print or two that I can make into an interesting quilt. Not sure how Im going to piece it together, but Im sure I will think of something. Jennie bought a bit more of the print that has all the provincial flowers on it. Im sure she will have fun quilting that once her arm gets better.

After shopping, we went to a feature from Downhips studios(based in Kitchener) for their Bellydance Bizarre...which was all Halloween based dance routines....even one routine where the Khizmet killed all her students. Alot of the dances were really unique, and Jennie and Kevin had a blast watching the show.

More will be updated as I pull more photos off my camera.

Tube socks ..... great idea .... you don't have to turn the heel!

Glad that you had a fun at Len's Mills and, see, I told you you would find those star prints there... :o)

Guess by now, Jennifer and Keven are on the plane flying home .... the time went way too fast.
