After we returned, the six of us headed to Long Lake Provincial Park for five days of camping and boating. Those boys love the outdoors and fishing. It didn't take much to wake them in the morning. Lesley and I walked the hiking trails - ~ 4kms - while the guys fished.
Alex caught this beauty, his first! A pike. Sadly the others weren't quite long enough to keep so they were released. JT was disappointed he got skunked but he was proud to have been handling his late Grandpa's net and helped Alex land his catch.
This weekend we travel to Red Deer to support our daughter and son in law in a Mud Run.it's part endurance part obstacle race. Hopefully we will be close enough to get some photos documenting their efforts.
Next week I do something I've never done before, go on a quilting retreat. I'll be learning the piecing technique of Judy Niemeyer. In May I selected my project and fabric and I'm so excited and yet very nervous at the same time.i hope I can keep up with the others.
This is the pattern i selected, queen size no less, in autumn colours of cinnamon, cranberry and green. I love all of Judy's patterns. You can see them at www.quiltworx.com
