S-I-L Wedding

Send the last week in Ontario, got back very late Wednesday night, or was it Thursday morning. Our flight was cancelled, so they bused us to a different airport to catch a later plane. I have had good luck with travelling so I guest I was due.
Had gone out for my sister-in-law's wedding. They really lucked out with the weather, as they had a garden wedding, and the Saturday was defiantly the best day weather wise. Here is a picture I took from my seat in the tent, while I was waiting for the ceremony to start. It was a lovely wedding, the ceremony was nice, the food was good, and couldn't be happier for the couple.
Being outside they allowed they dog to come, he was so well behaved and I think he enjoyed it as much as everyone else. Forgot to take a photo of him that day, he was all dressed up with a bow tie, so cute. I love his ears, one is always up and the other is always down.
I gave them the Bears paw quilt from the last post. I had spent a lot of time trying to pick out a quilt to make that was there taste, and am happy to say they loved it.

Since we been back, I have been trying to find my garden from under the weeds. Three weeks of rain follow by a week of sun has them growing like mad. I manage to tidy up the front yard, but still have a bit to do on the back.

A Finish (Bear Hug)

I got this back from the quilter a few moths ago,and it was time to put some binding on it and call it done. I am so happy with how it turned out. OK I still have to put the label on, but will be doing that tonight.
I was doing some of the hand sewing for the binding at guild and was surprised at how quickly it when. The bit that I did at home seemed to be a lot slower, I think it could be the extra help I get at home.

Sicamous Weekend

I did get some sewing done last week, just adding to the binding so I will so you picture once I am done the hand sewing. No sewing this weekend as we went to Sicamous for a golf torment. Not that I that much into golf, this was the first time I had played in 2 years. The most I ever play is about 3 times a year. This is really just an excuse to get away, there is a group of us that try to go most years, this year 18 of us from Calgary made it. We all stay at the same cabins, and go to dinner and have fire pit etc, so a really fun weekend.

For those of you who don't know Sicamous is in BC and has a lot house boating. Here is a picture looking out over the lake.

We saw so many animals on the drive, we saw 6 bears (this is the most I have ever seen in one trip), elk, big horn sheep, mountain goats. There was still a lot of snow and I think the animals had come down lower into the passes looking for food. We only stop once to look at the bears, not the best photo but her a mum and her cub.
Here is one of the photo from the golf course, this sign made me smile. How often do you see a duck crossing on a golf course.
