Summer Stitching

This time of year with the wonderful weather we are having really plays havoc with my stitching time.  This morning my husband who has been home after shoulder surgery needed to get out of the house so we decided to head up to the state park and enjoy the scenery. Mr Max came along so that he too could enjoy the park.  It was nice to enjoy the fresh air and the views.




 But, it really doesn't get me any closer to finishing my Mt Vernon block that has been haunting me lately.  I decided my Tribute to George deserved a block that honored Mt Vernon.  Have you ever visited Mr Vernon, I throughly enjoyed our visit a few years ago.




So this afternoon, I am working on a couple of shrubs on each side of the front door and some stepping stones that are the front walk.  Then the weeping cherry  trees need some pink spring blossoms to bring it alive. That shouldn't be too hard to accomplish. For motivation, I will be heading over to Kathy's blog and join the rest of the stitchers for Slow Stitching Sunday.

  1. the state park is beautiful - which one is it? - I'm not as familiar with the ones in your area as in the western part of the state.

    1. Actually this one is probably closer to you Karen It is Petit Jean State Park! It was a gorgeous drive up there too!

  3. Beautiful pictures. That park looks beautiful. I hope that helped your husband's recovery. Sometimes the best medicine is a change of scenery.

  4. That view would have made being pulled away from your stitching at least somewhat palatable. ;-) I've had one interruption after another lately so I've not been anywhere close to productive lately and with family coming in this week, I won't get in much sewing until next week. :-(

  5. Sometimes it is good to get away from your stitching. When I made a recent trip, I decided to take a break from sewing and computering. Only did a little bit. Now I'm ready to dive in again. Hope your hubby is on the mend.

  6. I think you have to enjoy the glorious days when they come: your stitching will still be waiting when it's wet, cold and dark again.
