A good mail week, right before another good week!

Next week, my husbeast and I will be vacationing in Montreal and Quebec City! (Thank you Meg for using this humorous term. I think I will borrow it.) Thanks to those of you from the area who gave me some dining and sightseeing tips, as I cleverly solicited all of your locations as part of my SMS giveaway day.

Another question for those of you who are familiar with Montreal: If we don't speak French, will we be okay? Are people friendly/helpful?

As if going on a 10-day trip isn't lucky enough, I've had an awesome mail week. Presenting, my Loulouthi winnings from Pink Castle Fabrics! I've been loving Anna Maria Horner lately, so these half-yard cuts were a stellar prize. And I even got a Hello Kitty card. (How did you know, Brenda?)

Loulouthi winnings!

I was also very happy to win one of the thousand SMS Giveaway Day drawings I entered! Kendra (Miss Knitta) was so kind to send me this stack of fun fabrics and some staples I'll definitely use in my last few bottled rainbows blocks. She even threw in a knitting book (so thoughtful!) because she noticed I've been trying to do more knitting! Thank you Kendra!

SMS Giveaway winnings!

So, if you don't hear from me much over the next few weeks, I'm having a great vacation! If you do hear from me, nobody would speak English to us in Montreal, and we spent every day in our hotel room, on our laptops. Just kidding! Kind of.

  1. I've been to Quebec City and Montreal (my daughter moved there two years ago) and was fine with just English....both places are wonderful. Have a great trip.

  2. Montreal is a little easier with no English than Quebec City but you will be just fine in both places. They are indeed wonderful - Quebec City's Old City is a little taste of Old Europe right here in Canada. We honeymooned there! Have a terrific time.

  3. You will be fine - tourists are bread and butter! I lived there for three years from Tennessee - absolutely couldn't speak a word of French - and adored every minute. Have a great time!

  4. "Hus-beast", that's a riot. =)

    I've never been to Montreal...but I hope you have a nice time.

    Congrats on your lovely wins! I'd be happy too!

  5. As everyone has been saying, you'll be fine not speaking french in Montreal... Quebec city might be a little harder, but if you stick to the touristy places, you'll be fine. I live in Sherbrooke QC, which is about half-way between Montreal and Québec city (well, it all forms a triangle sort of). If you need any tips and advice, feel free to ask! Hope you have a great time and that the weather cooperates for you!
    And wow... so lucky to have won those giveaways! I LOVE that AMH fabric!
