I am back at St. Peter’s Abbey for the 13th annual Saskatchewan Stitches Conference, a wonderful retreat for those whose live to knit, sew and quilt. This is my room again this year…I see they redecorated my room with new textiles! Our daily routine here is scheduled by the bells in the tower. Bells for the call to early morning masses, bells for lunch and bells in the evening…74 bells in the evening, I might add! After a few days, I scarcely hear the bells anymore, as they have become a part of our daily life. So I am grabbing life by the bells for the next two weeks!
Inside are the most incredible paintings on the dome of the altar.
There is St. Benedict standing at the right hand of St. Peter (upon whom the Catholic Church was built)
In this above photo you can see part of Father Demetrius, of the Order of St. Benedict, who is our main contact at the monastery and our tour guide for the cathedral and the Abbey. Father D as we fondly call him, has been our guide for the 13 years of the Stitches Conference!
This is another bra the same student whipped up! This gal had some amazing bras!
