    ME! ME! ME! Since so much of my genealogy leads back to Montreal (I even have a photo of the altar of Notre Dame on my wall) I've been dying to get there!!

    Here's a fun fact (at least for me): I am a direct descendant of the first Irishman in Quebec!

    OMG, I would love to come. Do you know how long it takes you to drive to Boston, MA or Keene, NH? I could guage a driving time based on those locations. I would prefer to drive so I can bring my machine and tools. Do you need a passport to go from the USA to Canada? If yes, I would have to get one.

    I'm in! I've always wanted to visit Montreal and other parts of Canada! I've been in love with Canada from afar. Try to plan a shorter version of the trips advertised in the quilt magazines, most of those are 7 days or more. I can do 4 days, perferrably over a weekend. Friday through Monday or something like that. Most of the tours I've seen advertised offer a tour of the country with a slant on quilting & fabrics. Maybe 1 small quilt class with an inspirational speaker, etc. a tour of the quilt shops, tour of Montreal, any museum's that feature historical textiles/quilts, etc. Do some 'rough' planning and let us know. If there's a group of us, we might be able to get reduced hotel prices, etc.
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Uh, Ligia, Houston is almost as far from Montreal as Los Angeles is from Hawaii.

    I think passports are needed to go from US to Canada, so I'd best get on the stick. It sounds like fun! Now to see how that fits in the schedule...

    Yes, you need a passport to get into and out of Canada.

    Well its been a very tough week around my house, its a very long and complicated story, and since this forum is a bit of an escape for me, I will spare you all the sordid details, while I live in denial for a short time. Having said that, I know I built up some curiosity regarding my blocks and although I have only two blocks done, I will do my reveal now!
    The first block is terrible and will be redone...I have all the fabric cut and ready to go including the replacement block for the first one, but I really fell in love with the polka dot background and think it will be really fun for the rest of the blocks.

    daisyboo9,
    that's adorable - I love that polka dot fabric....SUPER!!! Thanks for sharing...I hope your weekend will be better than your week....

    Passports....
    Yes, you need one to get into Canada...and the U.S. requires one for crossing from Canada into the U.S.....but, no matter how you prepare for the photograph, there is nothing more homely than a passport photo..... :-)

    Daisyboo9, I love your polkadot background! I have been looking for something other than a cream, also. Love your solution! :thumbup:

    Yes, it did sneak up on us! I know how you feel as I still haven't done February yet! Have no fear, you'll get it done! And March looks fairly easy.

    Thank you my dear. What's sad to me is that I have everything I need to do this, just haven't actually done it yet. I'm so looking forward to getting a good night's sleep and starting on this tomorrow!
