What a wonderful turnout!

We had a fabulous turn-out for Adriana's Art Show yesterday. The house was wall-to-wall people and the lawn/parking area was full, including some brave souls who parked on the side of the road.
Everyone wanted to see Adriana's amazing work and visit with her in person!
Fortunately I took all these pictures before anyone arrived so you can all see for yourselves the quality and quantity of her cross stiched pieces.
After people started coming I had no opportunity to take photos but perhaps Beatrice or Fran will have some shots of the crowd.
We met Adriana's family...children, grandchildren and great grandchildren; most of the Thursday and Friday stitchers, stitchers from Cobourg and Kingston area; friends from the retirement home where Adriana lives, church members, friends of the family, neighbours and complete strangers who saw the ad in the paper. It was an excellent day and I am so proud to have hosted it!
Special Thanks go out to Anne, Nan and Angie who made it so easy set it all up.
Enjoy the show!

She is so special to all of us and deserved every bit of praise and awe she got. It humbles me to be part of her life. and the word verify - blessest - doesn't that sound like her!
