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.

Row 24

Not sure what has happened to the month of June.  I guess I have been too busy to sit and relax. So, that is what I am planning for the rest of the afternoon.  Adding some navy scraps left over from Scrappy Happy to my TATW.  It has been a while since I have taken any slow stitches, sure do miss them.
