Mike and I took a road trip last weekend to Saint Charles, Missouri. We were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. We had a great time. It was good to get away from home for a change of scenery. Saint Charles has a quaint Main Street with brick streets and sidewalks. Lots of cute shops as well. I located the stitching shop there, "Stitches, Etc.". It was fun to look around even though, don't faint, I didn't purchase anything!
I have seen a couple of new releases from Market that I am drooling over....Three tulips
I just love the three tulips design!
This weekend has been more low key. I have been wanting to 'shake things up' around here and rearrange the living room. So my son promised to move furniture for me, so Saturday morning we were the first two up, we proceeded to quickly attack the living room. We moved everything and moved a few things more than once before we settled on the new arrangement. I like rearranging for a fresh new look and the opportunity to clean good under everything. We were almost done before Mike got up, and completely done by the time Holly was up. Which was a good thing because Holly isn't a big fan of our rearranging madness. ;)
Mike and I travelled to Starved Rock State Park today with another photographer friend of ours. The guys hiked a trail into the park to shoot photos of the ice fall formations. I kept myself amused stitching while waiting for them.
I have come down with a crappy cold this week, so have been drinking hot tea and using cough drops. I can't or shouldn't complain it's the first cold I've had this Winter.
We have snow in the forecast again this coming week. We had a snow day last Tuesday, when it was bad enough to close the library for the day. We got about 8" that day. Whoo hoo! Those days are such a guilty pleasure. Especially if the power stays on!
I started this beauty last night
I finished the Prairie Schooler Spring sampler from my last post. I will share a picture next time after it's pressed....
Mike took pictures of this funny looking pelican last weekend. He was posing standing on the frozen river.
In closing this long post I will share a picture of our last snowfall taken from our kitchen door.
Happy stitching everyone!
