Some Rest for the Weary....

The skies in Saskatchewan this summer have been incredible...
 

Not to mention scary with all the storms!!
 
 
Between haying and the garage build,



The crew waiting for another day of work...maybe they could wash the window...

We managed to squeeze in a trip to Kenosee Lake......


to stay at the cabins....

 
I got to spend some time with Jaxon when everyone went golfing....

 
Go to one of the last remaining drive-ins where the line up was super long...

 
Still on the highway waiting to get in!!!


We were one of the last to get in before the show started!!
 
Some time at the campfire...
 
Look at these woosy boys under the blankets!!
 
 
Visited the Chalet which is now the Visitor Center at Kenosee
 


We just don`t build things like we used to....
 
 
The Artist`s Colony was stationed at all the little cottages again this year...


One of my favorites is Prairie Fire Studio 

 
by Margaret Delainey of Regina, Saskatchewan.
 
 
Margaret just happens to be the mother of another super talented artist, Brenda Blackburn.


My favorite picture is the poppies....

 
but really they were all works of art....
 

 
The next cabin.......
 

 
had this work in progress...


 
Hard to tell the photo from the painting!!
 
Mom has been teaching Justin how to paint.....
 
One of Justin`s works in progress
 
maybe one day we can be artists in residence in one of these little cabins.
 
It could be a Quilting - Painting Retreat!!
 
On the quilting frontier.....
 
I did manage to find a moment to finish my Squirrel in the Forest Friends Series.
 
 
 
 
Kind of fitting for some time at the lake!!
 
Now to concentrate on getting some my flower beds looking like mom`s!!

 
I know my flowers are under there some where....

 
It is going to be brutal!!

  2. I lost track of Margaret Delainey after she left education ... happy to see her creative side. Have Justin paint some of our incredible prairie skies.
