This is what I woke up to this morning. The local fires are getting dangerously close to the town of Cranberry Portage...8km was the number last night. We are 30 km from Cranberry but I can't help worry about my friends near the fires. The town is on voluntary evacuation so I have a friend and her daughter staying with me as her husband is a volunteer fire fighter and wanted them out of the town. I hope she will beable to return to her brand new home in a few days and have all this behind her. It has been a scary and stressful time for a lot of people around here.
Here are a few pictures I took Tuesday night of the smoke clouds from the Scenic Tower at Bakers Narrow Provincial Park.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
