What a glorious Summer we had here in Nova Scotia
A Summer to remember
Everything grew and grew and grew
Wild apple trees drooped under the weight of apples the size of grapefruits.
Rusty Pups discovered they were delicious!
Bright, bold Dahlias grew as big as dinner plates
Dancing through my flowerbed
They took my breath away
And were still going strong until Jack Frost put them to rest. this week.
Wanting to remember and celebrate this Summer
For me that is through stitch.
It will be a piece of joyful memories
Giant balls of colour and stitch.....
.... will dance across my piece with companions of every size.
And of course they will come to rest on the soil
which they will enrich in preparation for next years Summer.
The cycle of life.
I am content
I am joyful
I am dancing along with the dahlias in memory of this Summer past
and settling down to new stitchings with anticipation.
It is what I do.
When the Rusty Pups come and plonk themselves in front of me as I stitch....
,,,,and even shove their noses into my cloth as I stitch....
....informing me they feel neglected
So we stop for a cuddle
Or a walk
Or a meal.
They are very patient but there comes a time when they feel the need to interject!
I hope your companions of every kind allow you the time to create today!
