Another week of sewing - er, I mean skiing

Well I didn’t make my goal – my sewing goal that is, the one where I was going to put together six flowers of my grandmother’s flower garden quilt.  I did get one more flower ready to add.  This is a pretty one…

And today I managed to make two blocks for my paper piece partner that are long overdue – from before I went to Australia…

Once again I was too busy skiing to do much sewing.  Hubby and I went for a three day ski camping trip over the Easter weekend.  Here’s a photo montage…

On our drive to Atlin, the take off point, we came across a herd of caribou…  My first good picture of caribou…

Our first rest stop…

And our first camp spot…

We had to look at a lot of scenery like this…

A gourmet meal…

A cup of wine to celebrate arriving home….

The snow is quickly melting and the ice is rotting.  The skiing might be done for this year.  I am off to a quilt retreat from Thursday to Sunday so I should have some sewing to show next week.  Smile

  4. Nice family photos. Even the dog got to go! I don't think I could have made many hexie flowers on that trip.
