July FNSI and Summer Travelling

I managed to squeak in on sign-ups for Friday Night Sew In for July.  And I actually managed to sew a little bit too!  I have a third block done for En Provence.  Not the side panels, just the block.

  
The reason I just made it to FNSI signups is because we were away on a trip.  We went to Atlin, British Columbia.  While we were there we attended a music festival, where we listened to lots of great Canadian performers.  My favourites were a "girl group" called Sweet Alibi and our own local Declan O'Donovan.

Then we went off on a boat tour of Atlin Lake.  We examined turn of the century cabin remains with beautiful gold and silver enhanced wallpaper...


Visited the Llewellyn glacier...


Saw lots of goats and sheep, but only three bears...


And even got to do a bit of sailing...


But we also spent a lot of time watching it rain... it rained for seven out of ten days that we were out.



But it is sunny today and we are going out again overnight.  I have to go back to work on Monday, so I have to enjoy as much of my vacation as possible.  

I hope you had a great Friday Night Sew In and have fun checking out what everyone else did.

  2. Hmmm, were you in a tent? Hope you kept dry. I looked at Atlin, what a wonderful place, and homes for sale, I drooled over some of the cabins there. I could live there so happily. Your blocks, Wow!!! Love those colours together.
