Slow Stitching is Rejuvenating!

THIS HAS BEEN MY WEEKEND! 
I've rejuvenated my Sue Spargo wool applique. I prepped four blocks for my Lori Holt Bloom QAL annnnddd I'm wrapping up the binding on my crazy jelly roll race! Needless to say, we've watched a series of good movies too as I've enjoyed the peacefulness of just stitching. 

We're all tuckered out and hand sewing has been just what the doctor ordered to relax and re-energize. (Yes, even Jackson is worn out from a  week of  play with my parent's German Shepard.)

My weekend of slow stitching has helped reground me after a wonderful two weeks of:
A VISIT TO OUR KID'S HOME
The highlight for me was our Fourth of July Hike. 
As you can see the view was worth the trek.

GRAMMY CAMP...WEEK TWO!
I ended my visit, bringing this guy home with me!! Oh the happiness Grands bring into our lives.

And finally, FAMILY TIME:
 I especially love that I get to spend a lot of quality time with my family during the summer. None of us live close, so when gathered together, one can imagine the energy and activity. I love it as any mother/daughter does, especially because these are all the people I create my quilty hugs for!
I hope your weekend stitching provides you with the same peaceful, rejuvenation it has me.

Looks like Grammy camp was lots of fun! You have lots of fun stitching to do too!

Cathy said...

I'm so lucky all of my kids and families live close. I LOVE grandkids and they come out to stay almost every other weekend.

BTW, I rec'd my I Spy swap on Friday and the grandkids sorted them into different themed piles for me and had a lot of fun.

Are you sure Jackson isn't dead - tired? Oh my that looks exhausting. A relaxing weekend to recoup from family time (and grammy camp) sounds great.

Valerie Reynolds said...

OMG!! I emailed Carole the same thing...that he looked dead. Poor guy...so tuckered out!

How good to have the family time, I am getting excited as my sister is coming from Australia next month, she has not been home since 1991 though I was out there in 2002.
