October 2000

The fall season has been simply beautiful in Saskatchewan this year, with warm and sunny weather almost every day. 
Lauren is 5 months old now and is becoming a very vocal little girl with some very cute things to say. I talk a lot, so I guess she is taking after her dad, but she has her mom's smile and is a very smiley girl. Lauren loves to go for visits and wins hearts everywhere she goes. 


Lauren, Lorna and I traveled to Calgary, Alberta, Canada for the Adventures in Embroidery Expo this month. We had a fabulous time in cowtown and met many new friends.
The embroiderers seemed to overtake the hotel with someone wearing their proudly crafted, best embroidered clothes everywhere you looked.
The people were so friendly. I can honestly say that this was the most fun I have ever had at a trade show. No one at the show expected the snow we had the first morning, but it was only a treat for the southern U.S. attendees and was gone by noon.
I taught a class at the show and I think it went pretty well. I have had some good feedback from my class so I think I will work on my materials and plan to teach a few more. I also have some great ideas for web based teaching and will keep dreaming for now and see what I can accomplish.
We really enjoyed the trip to Calgary and liked all of the people we met. Thanks Jen and Linda. You put on a great event.

I love soccer.  I'm an executive director of the SDSA (adult soccer league) in Saskatoon. We were the host of the National Tournament for the Canadian Senior Club Soccer Championship this year and I was one of the organizers of the event. I designed the logo and we used it to make some embroidered shirts. Press the logo above to see the embroidered version. I also authored the web site where I have pictures from the tournament and the game results. Check out the site if you like. http://www.saskatoonsoccer.com
We had a great time at the soccer games and Lauren is a good fan. Manitoba won the Mens Division and Alberta won the Womens.  The caliber of play was excellent, I only wish I could play like those teams.  Just watching them made me anxious to get our indoor season started.
