When I returned from Market I had the crazy thought that life was going to slow down a little, but it seems that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
What happened to the Lazy Days of Summer?
The weekend after Market was Memorial Day weekend and we couldn't make it to the
cabin fast enough.
It was a little cold that weekend, which included some rain and snow,
but we had so much fun none the less.
We like to be at the cabin as much as we can.
It's such a great place to relax and spend time together.
It's only about 1 1/2 hours from home, so not very far and it's such a peaceful place.
We have a beautiful view of the lake.
I will post pictures of that another time when we are out boating...can't wait!
As you can see, we like food.
The boys played basketball inside along with ping pong and Xbox.
It was way to cold and windy to be outside.
On Sunday, we were dressed for church and it was my Birthday,
so I wanted a picture of us all together to mark the occasion.
Emily made me some yummmmy cupcakes and we had a party!
It was great to get away, especially after all the Market craziness.
We have had family reunions...
...and more Birthdays to celebrate. Happy Birthday Tracy and Cecily!
Last week we flew to Las Vegas to celebrate a couple more birthdays...
Happy Birthday Canon and Camille!
with Krispy Kremes...
(someone was really happy to see grandpa!)
and Neilsons Frozen Custard...it's the best!
I got to sit by this little guy while we were out and about.
Camille and I put the finishing touches on our next fabric line and shipped it off!
And of course, we had to have some creative food!
Then home we flew.
We had to catch our plane at 6 am, so we were up at 4:00. To early for me!
In between all that, I took some time to ship orders and take care of business, set up my new web site and destash a little of my fabric there.
In case you missed it, there are a few Ruby/Bliss bundles left.
I also finished a little project that I shipped off yesterday for a magazine.
More on that later.
And today I went shopping and to lunch with my amazing Mom.
It's been a crazy Summer so far and I don't know about you,
but I think I am ready for a quiet nap in the hammock.
But I know what you are thinking...
... after eating all that yummy food, I better go to the Gym instead.
( I am putting on my walking shoes as soon as I am done posting this.)
So when I am out and about, I always try to get some stitching in. I love to take projects to stitch in the car and on the plane. I am working on a hexagon paper pieced project, and it is so addicting. I started one years ago and loved it so much that I started another one in our Ruby fabric and plan to put several of our fabric lines in it.
I also love to crochet around baby receiving blankets, so I always have a stash of those to take with me, and I usually take a quilt along to bind.
So with the 4th of July just around the corner and a few more months of Summer ahead, I plan on taking a couple more short trips, have more days at the cabin with my family and more stitching time...and I will try not to eat to much.
Happy Summer everyone!
