Ready, Set....Wait?

Harriet, the pattern is written up, proofread, and ready to go. All that's missing is a great photograph ( or two or three). Unfortunately, it's raining and the forecast is for more over the next few days. This is our Canada Day weekend, so the weather is all the more unwelcome, especially to all those Canadians heading to their cottages. (Although, come to think of it, some of my very best cottage memories are of snuggling up with a good book by the fireplace with the gentle pitter pat of raindrops on the roof in the background.) Surely, we'll get a few breaks from the wet, and when that happens, you can be sure I'll be dragging Isabel outside for a little photo session. In the meantime, here's a peek at the finished jacket, all blocked and ready for action, dangling off the edge of one of our deep our windowsills.

Yesterday, in the early evening before the rain began, I took a walk around the block on my way to scout out a possible photo venue. These lovely homes date from the 1820s through the 1840s.

Wonderful places, but I have something less distracting in mind as a backdrop. See you next week. Happy Canada Day.
