Friday at the Fort

David, daughter Claire, a friend and Donna (Dave's wife)

My neighbour Dave More has written his second book of an historic trilogy ~ 'The Lily and the Rose'. What has that to do with knitting...not much but that for this launch he invited six creative friends to exhibit at Historic Fort Henry here in Kingston along with launching his book. As one of those six I took my work up to the fort on Friday afternoon.

I hadn't been to the fort for a long time, not since the last time we went for the Kingston Symphony's 1812 at the Fort (a great outdoor concert including cannons!). It was a beautiful evening, finally cooling from the hot day it had been, and we were in two of the officers' mess dining rooms.

My display by the fireplace.

A lovely evening was had, three of the other artists were there too with paintings and photography, and one a history writer. We munched and imbibed, wandering out into the setting sun as David expounded on his newest novel and the history behind his story....all set in this area of North America.
