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. 

What's New Around Here?

Well, lets see . . . . .

My favorite yarn wholesaler has come through for me again with the most delicious Merino/Cashmere sock yarn! 

It's undyed, so I hand painted 4 skeins on the weekend.  I think they turned out pretty well.

Ahhhhhhh, Summer in Nova Scotia - July 7th Edition

It's Raining and . . . .

I'm making half square triangles.  For more blocks like this one:

Ebay and Canada Post

Soooooooo, according to The Canadian Press:

"Canada Post service could come to a screeching halt in July as ongoing contract negotiations make little headway.

Around 50,000 Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) members could be locked out or strike if an agreement is not reached by the end of June."
