Vacation Stitching-Shoreline Inspiration

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Hello folks,

I'm home again from our 100 mile vacation. We traveled along the Houston Main Line to Francoise Lake. There we set up our temporary home right on the shores of Francoise Lake. For several sleeps so to speak. We were really ready for some "quiet time off" and we got it.


We didn't have to reserve space, book ahead or anything complicated as that! We simple got in our truck and camper setting off without a plan, other than a general destination. LoraLee Resort on Francoise Lake is highly recommended.


I was up to favourite "hubby and me time" on the lake, it was so hot and humid! Nice breeze and lots of water, we were having fun!


 I'm the "wiener again" as my hubby teases me, he rarely catches the first fish, I usually do!


Lots of 'down time' and fires, BBq's and sleep!


Of course, I found time to play with my latest crazy quilt. Its a portable project again!~



 All of my ideas and interest in this piece have gone into the preparation of the creation of these blocks, some of these pieces will provide a backdrop for my upcoming online classes in Modern Crazy Quilting.



Sometimes, getting away is worth more than a break, more than a rest, but rather its worth the quiet down time to stitch.




This is how I love to take a 100 Mile vacation and stitch while I'm not fishing!



Happy stitching everyone!

    1. Peter, Francoise Lake is west of Burns Lake. If you're in town, just follow highway signage. Its truly lovely and lots of land is for sale there right now.

    1. Totally great time, so peaceful and everybody with family. A light breeze which got quite brisk one day and we had to take down the tarp. But then it calmed again and back to quilting and fishing.
