What a lovely week as far as weather goes ! Sunny, warm, some breeze and lovely skies. And I mention this as we have had one of the wettest, darkest and coldest springs/summers in a long while ... so very noteworthy !
My peonies were exquisite ... for exactly 3 days ... then the heavy rains bowed their beautiful heads.
My daughter is settled in her new home, deer and black bear are walking across her lawns and the 3 little girls are happy and excited. Daddy is glad to have his family at home (his hometown) after 5 mos. of commuting weekends to be with them here.
Grandma is coming to terms (but, slowly yet) that they are so far away... yeah, I know !, 4 hrs is a cake-walk for some of you :( :(
And I thank you all, so much, for sharing your kind words and thoughts with me ... you words are very comforting and you are truly appreciated :) :)
Luckily for me, this week was a busy one. I finished and packaged 'Esther' for her debut in our next show ;
"RUNNING WITH FIBRE"
by Connections Fibre Artists.
Would love it if you could join me
at the OPENING this
Friday, July 14, 7-9pm
|Esther Irene Deacon Currie|
And then there is this piece ... finally finished ... inspired by a photo from a friends' vacation in Costa Rica ... of a building in ruin but slated for renovations hence the attempt to close it off from traffic with what looks like re-bar.

|Adding the re-bar to the surface after canvas was stretched |
- re-bar is painted sticks from a sushi mat - closer-up

And an equally lovely drive on Friday to Stratford, Ontario with Elizabeth to deliver some pieces for the show opening there next week ... and finishing with a great lunch at the Desert Rose Cafe in Elora, Ontario !!!
Now if the next few weeks go as nicely and as quickly, I won't have a minute to spend on my achy-breaky heart ;)
