PhotoHunt : Model

Its been awhile since you've seen one of these ... right.  Its about time I start getting my blogging back to normal after loosing my Mum suddenly in June.

This week's theme is : model

Here's a model of the iconic Millennium Falcon from the original Star Wars Trilogy.  At the tail end of my holidays Bonnie and her husband Blair came for an overnight visit so we and Christin (her blog is worth a visit lately she's done a series of posts about "taming the stash monster") could go visit the Star Wars : Identities exhibit at the Aviation Museum.  Its a cool exhibit that's worth a visit!

Time For The Travelling Pattern To Move On

Well, I've finally downloaded all of the pictures off of my cameras from the last month or so!  Next step is to start going through them, keeping the awesome shots and getting rid of the ho-hum stuff.  That takes so much time!  That and I want to do noting but stitch!

Summer Holiday Stitching

Wow what a summer holiday I've had! I've flown to Charleston, S.C, turned around and drove to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia the day after I returned from my first trip. Then there was a week at home, a trip to LaRonde, and a weekend spent with good friends.
During my travels I got to visit three different LNSs! Bought a fair amount of stash too. I'll take the time to review and share pictures of each shop... And my stash too in future blog posts.
Despite travelling a couple of thousand kilometres in the last few weeks, my visits have been low key. I've got pictures to share, but I need to replace my card reader first.
As mentioned in my pre-vacation post I mentioned I was going to work on Ink Circles Cirque des Cercles. Here's my vacation progress. :

At the beginning of my holidays I had last worked on this during my Dominican trip in February.

After a week in Charleston S.C. (July 23-31)

After just over a week in Cape Breton (August 2-8)
