 I got an email from my daughter and she wanted to know if I was interested in going to the MARITIME FIBER ART RETREAT at the ATLANTICA HOTEL  & MARINA OAK ISLAND RESORT in Nova Scotia, near Mahone Bay on April 1-3, 2010.

She went with a friend last year and had a blast. She brought her spinning wheel and spinned to her heart content. There were over 100 fiber art people there doing their things.

So I registered and will be going with my hooking stuff and I hope to meet some of my bloggers  and / or my Rug Hooking Daily online friends there.  I have booked a room and so far I'm alone.   My daughter has  previously booked a room with her friend but we will be traveling together...

 The hotel registration  number is 1-800-565-5075
 The notice was sent by Sharon

I was wondering if anyone has been there or are planning on going.

On a sour note, some of my calves have scours and I have no idea how it has spread through my nursery. They have been treated with a vaccine for scours at birth and I usually get one or two with scours around the 11th day. I give them some medicine and it usually works real fast for the majority of them. This time the virus seems  a bit stronger. Several are starting to drink some milk again and seem to be getting better.
 I was going to move them to clean pens but will wait until they get better so their little pens stays clean longer.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your comments.  JB
