Late night Canada Day!

Steven and I have been working so hard that our big thrill
for Canada Day was getting time to take the dog for a walk
in the local park. It was a spectacular day, and everything
looked amazing. We listened to birdsong, observed the
bulrushes in the ravine, now taller than me, and just
enjoyed the chance to talk without the phone ringing.

After supper we both got back to work, and Steven couldn't
even break to cross the street to see the fireworks our
neighbours let off in the school's baseball field. Sam and
I sauntered over for a few minutes and had fun talking to
neighbours and watching some pretty impressive dazzlers.

I'm working now on my market lady. There's a lot to do.
She is almost finished, although I still need to refine her
face, hands and scarf, then there's the quilts, which I've
just begun, the background scene, and the fabrics on the
table. I have my work cut out for me, and I'll show you
my progress.

From here on in I think it will be fun. This is not my
only project, but I'll tell you more about that another day.

Happy Canada Day!
