Slow stitching Sunday in Vermont

Ahhhh. We were traveling yesterday and we were blessed with on time (or even arriving 30 minute early!) flights and two well behaved kids! The only snafu - the checked bag did not quite make it to Vermont until late last evening. We are waiting for it to arrive sometime this morning we hope.

Lake Elmore Vermont 9/6/15


Lake Elmore Vermont September 6, 2015
Until then, I am going to enjoy the view as I drink my coffee and have breakfast out on the porch on this lovely morning 60 degree weather. Much better than 90+ temps and feels like 100+!.

The kids gave Grammy and Grandpa a big hug and kiss and despite not having swim things (packed in the checked bags) they were out in the lake! Much chillier than our 90 degree pool but the kids had a great time with a net trying to catch fish and then swimming at the end of the dock. No gators to worry about up here.


I took a little time one evening last week to prep some appliqué blocks and cut some orange squares to start my orange trip around the world block. Those will be my slow stitching this week up here in Vermont.



Head on over to Kathys Quilts today and see what other slow stitching is happening in the world.

  1. I'm so glad you made it there with minimal problems. Ahhhh, I'm jealous of that cooler weather ... I miss sitting out on our deck working on my hexies. How long will you be there in Vermont?

  3. Vermont I bet is so special at this time of year it has been many years since I was there. I would think it is so relaxing watching the kids by the water in Vermont then in Florida watching out for gators!!

  10. Vermont is on my travel wish list and in Autumn (Fall) too. I believe they make a very delicious ham (saw it on a tv show once). That's a stunning view and those oranges look tangy and fresh.
