Not much quilting going on here this week as I spent 3 days working kitchen duty at my son’s Grade 8 camping trip. This was my fourth and final time volunteering at this camp as the school only organizes this activity for the grade 6 and 8 students and I went with both boys for both grades. There were three of us working in the kitchen and we got along great so that made it a lot of fun. Only had to deal with one minor incident and that was due to the previous group at the camp leaving a puddle of bacon grease in the oven. When we turned on the oven for the first time we were wondering why smoke was pouring out of it! We opened up the oven door to find a flaming grease puddle!! We shut the door and the fire eventually suffocated but the kitchen and dining hall was full of smoke! Took a few hours for that to clear and we joked that since we all smelt like smoked bacon the bears will be looking for us licking their lips! Thanks goodness there were no bear sightings this trip. It rained on and off but that didn’t stop any of the kids activities. They canoed, fished, hiked and baked bannock over the campfire whether it was raining or not. I took these pictures early on morning before the kids were up.
Here is the kitchen/dining hall and the next pictures is of some of the cabins, there are 10 in total.
We came home Wednesday and then today I took the boys to the orthodontist which is a 800km return trip so tonight I’m exhausted!! Don’t think I’ll be doing any quilting until next week as I’m so behind with the housework and still have to finalize a few more details on our kitchen renovation.
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.
