Vacation Week!

Hello dear stitchy friends.

I am pleased to share our first day of vacation with you. Mike and I are off all week. We don't have any big trip planned, but intend to take some smaller day trips this week. We started the week off with one of my picks ;). Spring Green, Wisconsin and The Country Sampler!

I hadn't been to this beautiful shop for a long time...! It is about 3.5 hours north of our house. What a treat to visit again. Even tho I am not 'into' quilting I do enjoy beautiful quilts. They have lots of them here! I did pick up just a couple of charts tho,

I saw this Star chart somewhere online awhile back and really like it. I found it as a kit. It's by Summer House stitche works. The other chart is
Liberty House by With Thy Needle and Thread. You can see my Autumn piece stitched in the background.

I decided to stitch Needleworker after my last finish. Here is my progress

It is going fairly quickly and has been fun to work on.

Before we left for Spring Green today, I had to get up early...I had made a 7 am grooming appointment for Harry... I don't know what I was thinking when I did this! But I was having second thoughts about my sanity when on first day of vacation my alarm went off at 6 am! Mike just groaned and rolled over. I got up and showered and off we went. I have to admit we got it out of the way early! But, Harry looked so handsome after he was done!

I had to share a picture of my two handsome guys!

Well it will be interesting to see what the rest of the week brings. But today was a great start, plus the beautiful Fall weather I've been waiting for has finally arrived. I hope it's here to stay for awhile.

Happy stitching friends!
