As it turns out I didn't get a moment's peace yesterday so the tutorial will have to wait. So today I thought I'd share a little bit of our weekend with you!
Every winter there is an ice festival in our little town. Ice sculptors come from all over the world and carve amazing ice sculptures. For the four winters we've been here, we've looked forward to it. We certainly don't have anything like this back home!
It was held last weekend. Last weekend that was in the minus 30's and 40's with the windchill. It was not only extremely cold, but my husband worked all weekend. I was too much of a wimp to bear it with the kids alone in that cold, so we skipped it.
The great thing about an ice festival and living somewhere that is cold, is that long after the ice festival is over and the sculptors have gone home, the sculptures live on.
It seems even the young and mischievous in town can appreciate the hard work that goes into the ice festival. Even now, over a week later, some of the sculptures have melted and changed from the weather yet none look vandalized from what I could tell.
But then again, if I wasn't stuck inside for days on end, I probably wouldn't get much sewing done. :)
