Darling Of A Dress

Darling Of A Dress

Yes Darling of a Dress one could say …I think this one gave me the most trouble in a while. To the point where I knit it twice.

First one in fingering weight it is to fit a 2 to 3 year old… brought it to work. Some said that is more for at 18 month old… Ohhhhh noo.

So off to the dying pot to make same colour in Dk weight and start over again.. Lol so I thought great I’ll have it knit up in no time…

Except…. something just did not work out well. tTe sleeves just did not fit in with the arm opening. Opening was to big and yes that in both dresses… Yuck what am I doing wrong was my question. I just could not concentrate on this one… something is not going well.

Have you ever thought… Nooo what is going on with me? why am I not getting this..

Well honestly so far this has not happen to me many times in my knitting lifetime lol.

So I looked at the written pattern and the chart…OHHHHHHH NOOOOO this is not the same..

Time to modified the arms and made it work.

Now for the pattern, it really is a beautiful dress and I love knitting Drops Designs pattern. Never really had a problem with them. But this one I am so glad it is done.

Beautiful Fall Season

Summer has come and gone again…

Many days during the fall season I have gone for short walks. Well at first I just drove with my truck to wherever it took me. Stopped wherever I felt like it.

Not sure if you ever do that?

But it totally feels good, to just go explore the surrounding places. I have come across so many beautiful spots. It’s mind blowing a little how many times I come across wildlife too. That I would not see otherwise.

Just not to long ago I was able to see a fox just so at peace in my present. I have absolutely never seen anything so beautiful. He never even noticed I was there. You can see this fox in one of my pictures below.

Fall Has Started

OHHH noooo..

First day of Fall was yesterday and we where out on probably my last sailing of the year. Lake Simcoe has some good winds at time too and beautiful sunset moments!

lol I am writing this now as I am getting a text from hubby…looks like we may go out tomorrow evening again… how can I refuse that!

If weather conditions are good.. why not.

Some of the past weeks sailing times have been pretty nice especially with the sunsets and seeing them from the water.

I am so looking forward to my sailing trip coming up in the deep winter here…

perhaps I’ll go ice-fishing before that too… hahaha.

A Rose Bouquet

So many places one can buy a Rose bouquet….

I am sure you have bought roses here and there. We have all the wonderful Flower Stores that have the perfect Rose for You to give to your love.

I have been buying flowers here and there lately too. From all different stores and florist places.

Some of them lasted for weeks and some only a view days… no matter where I have bought them or received them from. All in prices from low to high…

Vince’s in Newmarket.. has beautiful bouquets …a gift from Reni.. Thank You my GF.

Yet I have to say that our local grocery store Vince’s has had some beautiful bouquets with primroses in them. One bouquet lasted for 5 weeks yet another only 1 week…I dry them all up after they are tipping over…

bought the one on the left and it lasted for 5 weeks now dried up on a vase…totally love it

Now just past days I bought roses from Wallmart… 5 for $6.- or 2 for $10.- well how can I say no to that deal… they are absolutely beautiful and the sent is amazing… Yes they don’t have the perfect straight stem.. who cares.. about that anyways…

from Wallmart just 2 days ago..

St. Georges Church, Georgina,

This beautiful peaceful place by Jackson’s Point, keeps on puling me to come up and visit over and over again. Not sure what pulls me to it … yet It just gives me that inner feeling of Peace.

At a moment of need in my heart … In early Spring this year. At a quiet place off the main area Just placed on the ground. A red Rose….just like that, I believe it was a gift from Heaven for me to find. As I was about to leave … but something in me said, just go that way and don’t go yet.

this is not the place I found my Rose…. it’s where I place them to see the lake and sky…and hope I’ll give the one person that finds it a smile to his/her heart too.

Here and there I now too bring a Rose and place it overlooking the Lake Simcoe as I love that view so much. Peace and feeling of freedom. The big world wide open, wherever the water or sky takes One.

I believe someone will love to feel like I did when I did see that rose … I was speechless at that moment…

The grounds of this Church is so tranquil and beautiful…
