Cinzia has given us a significant challenge this time: the letter X! To her credit, she has also given us an “out” if we are unable to do it: we can do an acrostic of our names instead. But I have been very fortunate in the last two weeks to find enough images to do the Xs. Yay! AND I’m a week early!!!
Our categories this week are:
We’ve just driven a couple of hundred kilometres on a gravel road in the far north of Canada. There were times when it was appallingly rough, with large rocks and frost heaves from the permafrost, which our little VW car didn’t like much. But mostly, it was just dusty. Here’s a picture of the back of the car at the end of that drive. Can you find the X?
We visited the MacBride Museum of History in Whitehorse Yukon, and found lots of stuffed animals, a huge exhibit about the grueling Yukon Quest dogsled race, and quite a bit of historical paraphernalia from the Gold Rush era. Here’s a picture of one of the famous showgirls from back then, known as “Madame Zoom”, likely because nobody could possibly pronounce her first name: Xheusune!
When you sign a letter, at the end many people add XOXOX. The “o”s are for hugs, and the “x”s are for kisses! I Googled images for “kiss” and guess what I found?
CROSSES IN QUILTS
We sang in Yellowknife last night, and my friend Steve Lacey was closely examining my Star and Plume quilt. He said he counted a LOT of X blocks in the quilt! How many can you find?
That’s it for this week! Can’t wait to see what’s up for next time!
