So when I read about Celtic Thistle Stitches mini quilt competition, I immediately knew which memory I would share! It was a family summer camping trip to Sandbanks Provincial Park. I remember the photo taken that day and I was wearing a matching shorts and top set that my mom had sewn for me and a canvas sun hat. We entered a sandcastle competition on the beach and we created the trillium logo of our province. We didn't win. This is what we based the sand sculpture on:
I recently paper pieced a Trillium cushion for the Forest QAL which brought back all these memories. The photograph of our trillium sculpture is in Canada in my storage boxes but I can recall the day as clear as a bell! I loved those camping holidays.
Seeing a trillium in the woods was such a special thing. There are may varieties but the ones I remember were always white. Oh - and NEVER pick a trillium!!!
Time waits for no one and since leaving my home province, it appears that they have a new logo with a much jazzier trillium!
