SCRAPPY TRIP -- A FINISH

Not long ago, one of my boys was showing me some photos he had taken and I couldn't help but think, " what a great place for a photo shoot". This is a rest area located about 20 minutes outside of town and overlooks Kamloops Lake



I think it's amazing that a lake that size can be nearly all frozen over. We HAVE had it cold lately....


I had an appointment with Linda to quilt this for me and I asked her for the Continuous Mums that she does free motion. I am so thrilled with the texture it has!


One last shot that my boy took and e-mailed to me. I think he tweaked the colour a bit but I like the contrast  : )
