Here we are, visiting my parents cottage on 'the Bruce'.....the Bruce Peninsula, that is. There are a lot of fun things going on and we're having a fantastic family time! My parents have left for the long weekend, taking D with them to Prince Edward Island to visit my sister and her family.
So, it's me and the boys (husband B, son T and my youngest brother S who is 33 going on 18). You won't believe what they got up to last night....if you really want to know, you can see it in motion here. I'll give you a hint: Tresemme hair spray, PVC pipe, a BBQ igniter and a potato. It's worth a quick view and you'll make T's day by racking up the views on his first ever YouTube post.
A few days ago we went into town for dinner on the harbour. While waiting for our table, we walked out to the lighthouse and saw this! How excellent!
You can see this mooring ring has been bolted to the limestone for a very long time - check out the groove worn in the rock around it. I wonder if the knitted cover once went the whole way around the ring?
ankle socks plus a regular pair for me and another for a family friend. I think she's up to pair # 155 or so. A veritable sock-knitting machine, she is.
With the cottage a little less busy, I've pulled out my fabric and started piecing the tree skirt - it's fun to be sewing here. I also managed to complete and mail my MiniQT swap quilt for July. I can show you a photo once my partner in California receives it.
There's lots more to share.....I'll be back soon!
