Traveling through a Winter Wonderland

Elkford in the snowToday was another travel day – the sun greeted us this morning as we left Elkford, BC where we spent a couple of nights with friends. It was great to hang out, visit and just enjoy the snow that was falling outside all day yesterday…

That translated into icy roads and a little “white knuckle driving” for Colin but once we arrived in Fernie the roads were clear. Salmo Pass reminded us that winter is just around the corner. Despite the poor roads we enjoyed the Winter Wonderland that surrounded us.

I am now in the Okanagan Valley where I will spend tomorrow preparing for my last two teaching sessions of the year. I look forward to reconnecting with the Quilt BC 2013 LOC  – I hear the group is eager to gather for three days to explore color, design and dimension with me. Stay tuned for more regular posts on this blog…

    Hi Anna, I’ve been wondering about the weather you have been encountering The pictures are beautiful The wonderful thing about living in Canada is that nature provides us with an ever-changing art show but it is accompanied from time to time with scary side effects. Keep safe and enjoy your last teaching sessions.


  2. Enjoy the mountains and drive with caution as the snow on roads often cover ice in BC.
    Am looking forward to seeing you in Jan to continue on our journey in design.
    Have been busy downsizing my stash of fabrics, embellishments etc for a sale in the spring. I have a pile of stuff that I will bring to you that you can either keep or reject. My shelves are sparsely covered with what is left and I can see everything in an instant. Wow.
    I am anxious to hear of your adventures during the past couple of months, as well as just what you managed to do in YK.
    Smile you are on the last leg before returning home. Hope that you will have good news over the holidays. Leona


    • Hi Leona, wow – you have been busy. Not sure if you want to bring “stuff” to me as I am limited with space and need to really work on some new art. I have two shows in the US for 2014 and it is my goal to create anew small body of work using some of the hand dyed fabrics I have accumulated. YK was great!! The last few days have been relaxing and I am ready to face the last “leg of my teaching trip”. Hope to see you at the S’toon Quilt Guild Christmas Party… But there is so much to do – least of all secure the new venue for Art Quilt Campus 2014.


  3. Safe travels, Anna & Colin. We look forward to seeing you two when you get back home.


    • Thanks, Susan – I am looking forward to connecting with two eager groups but I can’t deny the fact that I am yearning for some downtime at home. Five weeks on the road to date without sleeping in my own bed is taking its toll.
