Take Time to Smell the Rose (s)

 

I've been flying around like a mad creature lately, and went racing around the corner of the house the other evening, in search of I-can't-remember-what, when I found this lone, lovely, incredibly huge rose, all by itself, and simply had to slow down to enjoy it for a few minutes, so I thought I'd share it with you. 

Bargellos, the PM, and Postal Workers

I've been playing with Bargellos again!  I can't believe it has been so long since I did one of these.  I used to list them quite regularly on Ebay, but it's been a few years.  This one was so much fun, I also made a smaller version in these colors for myself.  It's waiting for borders and quilting as I write this (but then, so are many others!).

A Political Question . . . . .

Would you walk 4 blocks to see the Prime Minister? 

I've always said I wouldn't cross the street to meet a politician, but opportunity never presented itself before. 

Apparently Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, will be at the local park on Tuesday attending a public barbeque, and making an infrastructure announcement.
