been a while since i posted...
i thought i would do better... sunny, summer, busy days
let them play...
my mother was right all along - usually is, so i really should know better by now
to this day i can hear her say "you kids go out and play"
i can hear the inflection, the tone, the sound of her voice - can see her, right there, hands busy with something, calling to us over her shoulder while she got yet another chore done
i wonder how many times she said that while i was young...
this month, july, i am getting back to playing
and bozzy decided to join me - much to his delight
(he looks delighted, doesn't he?)
we had dear friends to dinner on the 4th and as she is american we thought we would surprise her with a 4th of july american-style dinner
(yup, he's on the table but i wanted the flag in the background and he has only so much patience for being decorated and photographed - kind of like me!)
found this gorgeous fabric to play with....it will be a bag for sure and a tablerunner for maybe... not sure what else yet, but i do love the visual texture of the black lines
saturday we took mom & harold up in the mountains to sun peaks ski resort to see the sights and take in the quilt show
while mother and i ducked in to the fudge shop, the boys found this...
over-sized chairs are just too hard to resist!
i found some of these lovely japanese fabrics, perfect for backgrounds, at one boutique at the quilt show
and a pack of light backgrounds in old-fashioned prints at the other - two of them have bee motifs on them and will be so much fun to play with
some of the most fun i've had so far this month was playing with paper
my journal is all put together now and ready for me to play with words in it
i love the picture above but can you imagine playing in those clothes- give that girl some freedom!
a pretty page
i think the one above is my favourite in the whole book
some of the most fun i've had here in salmon arm is with my friend Glenda, parked at the counter of our favourite bistro, watching people parallel park on our narrow one-way street
talk about the u-smile cafe!
play - the freedom to move
between you and me
yes mama, i hear you...
play is my word for july!
