The Sun Shines on Halifax

We had a quick stop yesterday in Sydney Nova Scotia, the Celtic music capital of Canada, in my opinion. It rained a lot, and I didn’t get out much.  Some of our gals went to Louisburg, or the Coal Miners’ Museum.  The last time I took a picture of this famous fiddle, there wasn’t a cruise ship in 1,000 miles, and the fiddle looked huge!

Finally, we are seeing some sunshine here in our last Canadian port of call!  We started the day with a workshop with fabric artist Laurie Swim, and learned some really interesting and different techniques for putting together landscape quilts.  She’s been making Nova Scotia themed quilts for a long time, and has great ways to use plastic wrap, cheesecloth, fabric paint and glue. Here are a few pictures from the class.

Deanna joined us from Halifax - she was the only one who wasn't swaying (we still think we're on the boat!)

Everyone takes home a unique framed little piece to hang on the wall.

Tomorrow we head into the US and Bar Harbor. Hopefully the rain is over for us, and we can see some colour!
