Keep­ing Them in Stitches!

More of Our Canada - - Bulletin Board -

Kerry Buzzell of Brant­ford, Ont., writes, “I am a mem­ber of a group called the ‘Stitch­ing Sis­ters’ here in Brant­ford. We’ve been cross-stitch­ing for more than 30 years. For the past eight years, we have at­tended a re­treat at a B&B called Brent­wood on the Beach, which is sit­u­ated on the beau­ti­ful shores of Lake Huron. Our group calls it Heaven on the Huron, as the view of Lake Huron is in­de­scrib­ably beau­ti­ful. Many of our ladies grab their bags of stitch­ing, find their favourite chair and set­tle in—try­ing to fo­cus on stitch­ing, but at the same time try­ing to keep an eye on the lake! Need­less to say, many of us have to take out some stitches and redo them, but that’s okay. We’re only able to visit once a year, so it‘s worth the ex­tra ef­fort. Sadly, this will be our last year at this beau­ti­ful B&B, as the new owner is no longer hav­ing re­treats. The good news is that we’re now look­ing for a new place to bring our cross-stitch­ing.
