My friend Roman came for lunch, and did he ever look spiffy in a purple velvet jacket (very Mick Jagger) turquoise shirt, purple and turquoise tie, turquoise and purple cuff links
and matching purple socks with new Redwing boots. And no, thats not apple juice in his hand.
It was with a heavy heart that I went to the funeral of my friend Elizabeth Harris today.
She was (amongst other things) the manager of the Brickworks Farmers market and took a chance on me, about 5 years ago when she let me set up stall there to sell vintage and antique quilts. It opened lots of doors for me, getting to know the farmers, getting to know the food as well as a fun venue - only 1/2 days as well.
It was the first time I had been in the Metropolitan United Church in Toronto, a stately historic building. Must have been about 1000 people there. All will miss her.
