and a blouse made by myself from a 1980s pattern. I'm really excited about this pattern and think I'll make it into a dress for next year!
I went with Jon and my parents and we took a walk along the old road, looked at the mining homes and sat on the sandy beech. My mother found saskatoon berries on road and she made us stop and pick every last one of them. They are delicious though, and my mother is crazy for picking berries. Afterwards we decided to take a look at the old cemetery from when Silver Islet was a real village, and it was such an interesting place. We ended the day with pie and tea at the general store. The day trip was definitely one of the highlights of my summer.
