Good afternoon everyone!  It’s been a busy couple of weeks.  Hence the lack of blog post last week.   We had company the last while and we took the time to show them around the Maritimes.  It was our vacation, as well as theirs.

I did not accomplish much rug hooking, but I did manage a bit on my large Parker’s Cove fishing shacks piece. I need to refocus on finishing the edging on the earlier ones and hooking more of them.  I believe I counted 15 shacks in total.

In other news…

The show and sale at Scott Manor House in Bedford, Nova Scotia, starts Thursday at 1 PM and goes until Saturday at 4 PM. Friday we will have the doors open from 10 AM to 4 PM. There is, reportedly, an afternoon tea at the House on Friday as well. There will be a broad range of styles and prices at the show and sale.  If you’re in the area it would be a nice way to spend some time.  I understand Scott Manor House offers guided tours as well.

The exhibit at Village Voice Gallery in Truro is still on.  It ends July 16th. There will be another group show the end of August into September. I will be a part of that as well.

That’s it for my rug hooking news.

I have a lot of company and vacation time coming up.  Extended family and friends coming to visit.  We’ll be heading out sometime in August to connect up with family in New Brunswick.  Lots happening!  Gotta love summer!

My garden is a mixed bag.  Some of it is growing very well, some of it is so-so, and some is not doing well at all.  Still, I am harvesting lettuce, radish, beet greens and Swiss chard to make wonderful salads. Plus I’ve already harvested some basil, cilantro, thyme and parsley. Everything is going as well as can be expected in the garden department.

If you have been, thanks for reading.  Have a great week!
