Cupcake Girls

It's been a wonderful couple of days. Attending the NLOWE conference and workshops. Met some wonderful new people through the networking sessions and beyond. The highlight for me was the luncheon today with guest speakers Lori Joyce and Heather White, the Cupcake Girls, I have been watching their show for ages and when the opportunity came to meet them in person I couldn't pass it up.

We did have cupcakes for dessert made by the Delta.

Still Morning

I was sitting by the window, as is normal, yesterday morning, having my coffee and knitting, surprise, when the motor boat pulled up on the shore line caught my eye. In fact it was so calm that it appeared there were two boats, it was a beautiful sight.

Today now is a little different scene, foggy and much cooler. I did still enjoy my coffee by the window and knit a few rounds before getting ready for work.

You might ask what knitting has to do with the Titanic?? I am sure that amongst the passengers of the Titanic there had to be knitters, some may have even been knitting when the ship hit the iceberg, who knows?
During the winter when I was designing new hats for ACTS and the Provincial wholesale show I was thinking what I could celebrate and I thought of the Titanic and that message that was sent via Morse Code, and so my Morse Code Hat.

Morse Code Hat
-- --- .-. ... . / -.-. --- -.. . / .... .- -

While the design on the hat doesn't say anything, it's the series of dots and dashes symbolizing the Morse code that's significant. Hope you enjoy my way of sending tribute today on this 100th anniversary.
