I started to make the log cabin blocks for the Guild's BOM. I should have stayed in bed!
First of all I started with the wrong block....................oh, by the way, I do own the book they are taking these blocks from so that's why I can get ahead...............and I have insider information.
I should have started with block 39, I started with block 9! Block 9 is 6 x 6", has 48 pieces and is paper pieced. Well, heck they are all paper pieced! I like paper piecing, I thought I ws good at paper piecing. Yesterday proved that wasn't true.
|I don't get to stop to take photos. We do them on the fly!|
|Science North -- one of the buildings|
The science buildings are built in the shape of giant snowflakes. There are a lot of things for adults and kids to do, including an IMAX theatre. We saw two movies in 3D, Under the Sea and something about dinosaurs. You can tell that wasn't too special. A bit too documentary for us, but Under the Sea was fantastic! We will never eat fish again though. They're just too darn cute. (Think Nemo)
We spent the entire day there. We had lunch on the patio and then went to visit the.............................
mallard ducks in the lake. We had no food for them, but that is okay. They are wild and shouldn't depend on humans for food.
We also went to see Dynamic Earth. A fabulous place in our province to discover mining!
Canadian Shield and are all rock! Thick solid massive rock! The girls were thrilled to be standing and walking on the "shield".
|No, I didn't take this one. I scoffed it off the internet!|
