Clue 4 finished, so now I have to wait till next thursday. I don't like those short clues. Therefore I have decided to start another Mia Bella for my daughter for christmas.
I have now had my first friday off and it was lovely. Lots more to come, at least until Christmas.

ok...so still working on clue 3, but almost done. In the meantime we took off on friday and headed to Niagara-on-the-Lake. We stayed only for one night at the Queen's Landing. It is a beautiful little tourist town with lots of attraction. We love peace and quiet and even in this tourist town, we always find that we are relaxed.
We were lucky enough this year to see the start of the Peach Festival. They had closed the street and had a little market set up. We bought of course peaches, which are absolutely delicious. I fried some up last night with our fish and because it was soooo good, I fried up some more with some Maple sugar for dessert over ice cream...hmmmmm!
We also visited wineries, one of our favourites "Peller Estates". We come here every year and have dinner here. The menu is superb as is the food. They have a red wine and a white wine tasting menu, which we always like to try. It comes with the appropriate glass of wine, so by the end of the meal one is a little, shall we say, drunk. haha!!! Not really, but sure ain't feelin no pain. ;)
On the way home we stopped in at some wineries, such as Kacaba and Gretzky's - yes Wayne that is!!! Very good wine I must say. The Riesling - Yum-O!
That is that for our little weekend adventure. I am hoping to do much more of those as I might be able to get fridays off now as the company I work for is downsizing a bit. Means less money, but I still have a job AND time off to do more crafts... YES!!!!

My oh my- time flies when you're having fun!
Donna Rocco has started and I finished clue 2 which was rather a short one, but that's ok. Maybe I get the chance to continue on the jacket I am working on now.
The photos show the choice of yarn colours, clue 1 and clue 2, where I am now starting to use the colours. I can't wait to see how the colours will blend in on this. Now I have to wait until next thursday to get the next clue. It is so frustrating to be working on another project in the meantime when I am having so much fun with this one. Now my daughter has asked for a Mia Bella for Christmas in black. I have already bought the yarn, but I really think I shouldn't start a third project. I'll only get confused...haha.
Oh well. Today the sun is out and I really should get going to enjoy some of this lovely day. After working all week, the weekends always seem so short. sigh!
