SUNDAY MORNING AT THE COTTAGE

 I just love this photo which was posted on Facebook.  I still get a chuckle out of it. 

For dog lovers of course!  But still funny as those of us with dogs, we know their obsessions
with treats or food!

The grand kids who compete in
sprint canoe/kayak have had the
summer of their lives.  Jeremy, was in Junior Worlds, Canada games, and the Canadian Championships.  

Courtney, on the right photo was in Canada Games and Canadian Championships.  

Representing the province of 
Ontario was a wonderful honour and it was Courtney's second Games to have been chosen.   The outfits they were given for representing their home province were red and white. 

  A lot of trading went on after the games with Alberta being the most popular province as they had these amazing jackets, that were like a light jacket, then there was an added bonus of sleeves and hoodie that slipped over the jacket.   Very very cool.  I must get a photo as I've never seen one like it.

I love nine patch.  I made this for my mom.  She is 94 now, and used it for a couple of years on her nursing bed.  It is "Oh Cherry Oh"  and one of my favourite designer fabrics ever.  I wish it would come back.   

When I made this, I sort of got on  a kick of nine patch and every summer I would make one.  Then, I said, "no more"  I've had enough of this pattern.   Oh, how I have changed my mind.   I love nine patch and every time I've made the pattern I look at how to cut it up and make a variation.   

But "Oh Cherry Oh"  was the perfect colour combinations of bright and combined patterns.  Do you remember it?  Moda should bring it back.

It is Sunday morning at the cottage, we are a bit warmer than the last few days, actually sat out yesterday.  The mid 60s or teen Celsius days are here.  My friend Bev told me she still lives in the Fahrenheit measures, as do many of us beyond the age of change.   So do I mostly.   But I can do the math on 10-20 in Celsius.

A hummingbird is our lone little creature feeding at the window this morning.  I suspect he is a traveler just passing through as the days are getting shorter and the nights cooler.  

It is Sunday morning and I am musing.  Enjoy your day!
