Patchwork & Song: Ukee style!

The journey has begun: a few rough patches in Chemainus on Wednesday, but still lots of fun.

The second leg of the trip brought us into the beautiful seaside community of Ucluelet on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Our day there began with a 3-hour “slick tricks” quilting workshop in the afternoon…despite the “oh my goodness” photo, I really did know what I was doing!

After a great baked spaghetti dinner courtesy of our friends Martin and Ellie Gee [thanks Martin!], we recruited a couple of “Vannas” [Nikki and Carina Gee] to help us with Patchwork and Song. It was a great evening with lots of laughs, a few tears;  a mountain of quilts and some great music.

Sunday morning I had the wonderful opportunity to preach from Psalm 23: the Shepherd’s Light quilt that hangs in the front of Christ Community Church in Ucluelet was made by some of the quilters who attended my class on Saturday: what a treat to see their work and meet them, then to speak about the meaning behind their beautiful quilt.

Home again to unpack, do laundry and repack quilts and teaching supplies. Next stop: People’s Church in Surrey on Tuesday.
