We've been having a little bit of fun after working so hard this past spring.   We packed up the '76 Boler and went camping at Sir Winston Churchill Park for a long weekend  (Neat provincial park - it's an island in a lake).  The weather was perfect - lots of sun and warm at night.  A little walking, a little biking, lots of talking, lots of laughing, lots of good food and lots of GT's.  Gosh, we had such a good time.  Can't wait to go again.  Hello Summer!

 We are in love with our little camper.  She's a '76 Honey Boler (we think) - 13 feet long .  We bought her last year from a couple who at totally rejuvenated the important workings and frame.  The little tent is our garage :)  We keep our bikes in there.

Beautiful walking trails.

 And yes, we glamp!  Crystal, silver and china with a linen table cloth.  Helping the environment where we can lol.  Best coffee in the world made on our camp stove with a retro glass coffee percolator served in a chocolate mug I got at a flee market in France.  It has soft pink roses on the side.

 Gotta have these!

 GT's on hot sunny afternoons - yum!

Here we are all rigged up to go home - but first a little stop to find a geocache.

This one was created by the local Girl Guides.  Sweet little find.  Sigh...hard to say good bye to such a wonderful weekend.

...and now for some stitching updates.  I've started the Papillon Sal Around the World in 80 Stitches.  I'm looking forward to learning these new stitches.

I've finished stitching this little etui.  A freebie from Jura Point De Croix.  She has many wonderful designs to share.

I finished this little project and thinking of making a pin keep.  Not sure - I've never made one before.  It's called Pleasant Words by Elizabeth Foster.

Off to stitch on my Dawn of Spring Sal.  Have a wonderful day!  Newfie Princess
