Meanwhile, outside in the fort, the general public was also participating in a ‘sashweaving dance’.

Then this evening at the Auberge du Violin we had another group weaving activity, this time accompanied by music.

One thought on “la p’chit dawnse

  1. Great pictures Carol! Just watched a news story about new pictures found of Reil and gifted to the St Boniface Museum.

    My post about your book is just up… and thank you for the book that arrived in today’s mail.

    All the best, Susan
