    Devon, I hope things turn out well for you and that you enjoy being in Canada. Right now, I know that you must be experiencing many mixed emotions.

    In what part of Canada are you settling? I am on the East Coast.

    Hang in there moving is stressful enough. I am sure moving to another country is more stressful. Remember grief will come with any change in your life. Be is a good change or diffcult change. Let the tears flow it will help.
    Sending prayers for you.

    Good luck on the move. I know that moving is stressful, but think of all the new friends you will make and all the new LQS's you get to explore. Maybe you will be close enough to visit the US one of these days. Welcome to North America.

    Yea! Ontario is happy to adopt you.

    You'll be about a 2-1/2 hour drive from me. I'm NW of Toronto, whereas you'll be NE. I know there's others who post on here that are pretty much on your doorstep, and hopefully you can connect with them soon!

    Lindsay is a really pretty area northeast of Toronto. I am northwest and could drive to Lindsay in about 2 hours. I think you should look for your closest quilt guild and join it. That way you`ll meet some new friends who share similiar interests. My good friend in my guild is originally from England and she is not one little bit sorry that she came to Canada for a temporary job transfer and stayed. Welcome.

    Where in Canada are you going, Devon? I wish you well and sometimes wish I was still back in Vancouver!

    Oh, saw Toronto is to be your new home!
