r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

Day Tripping: Lake Nepewassi

Day Tripping

Lake Nepewassi

Quiet start to the day.

Cloudy with chance of rain.

Should be perfect fishing weather.

Rock fall.

Those trees grow from rocks!

Scenery at every turn.


Veins of colour run through the rocks.

You would think that X marks the spot for good fishing.
But that was not the case.
No fish for us that day.
Just some rain,
good company,
and a bit of sun.

Cutlery Keeper for Camp / Picnic / Pot Luck

Cutlery Keeper for Camp / Picnic / Pot Luck

Isn't this neat? 
My sister made it for me years ago based on a photo I sent her by email. This was in pre-Pinterest and pre-Facebook days! That's how long ago she made it!

I can see these being used for camp, picnics, and pot luck meals. 
Any other uses you can suggest?

That little bit of pink yarn you see is the bit of a repair job I did just before I went to a Girl Guide camp weekend. No more forks poking out of my dishes bag! By the way, what do you call your dishes bag? Ditty Bag? What else? Any other terms out there?

At camp the other leaders and some of the girls expressed an interest in this keeper and I realized I could use up more of my existing yarn stash as well as much of the plastic canvas I have it my house! So I've pre-cut as many keepers as I could from the plastic canvas on hand and now I'm all set for one meeting of Guides in the fall!! Talk about pre-planning, lol!!

Should I do a tutorial? 
Or is there already one out there somewhere?
