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