the lobster bibs get worn...and a side track from sewing

Everyone looked charming in their new attire... 

and the food was pretty good too..

When you come from Quebec and lived all over the world, you are bound to enjoy the Atlantic Seafood. That is the case with   
our parish Priest ...Father Pierre Drouin.

 But imagine when you come from Africa? What we take for granted as an everyday meal  is an amazing treat. Can you tell by the smile on  

Father Hyacinthe
Good food, good company and lots of informative discussions and laughs makes for the perfect evening.

Sewing aside I do a little knitting now and then, so tonight I finished a cowl scarf... 

This is so much fun to knit .. I used Patons Lace Sequins yarn...
