We like to get away to the woods and nature whenever we can. We both grew up in the city/suburbs and really appreciate the smell of the forest in the morning. Here is a photo of our home away from home. We don’t go too far with fuel prices high, but when we go now we go for a week or so and stay put. I always bring my sewing machine along and some kind of handwork, as well as a good book. That way, just in case of rain, I can always be occupied with something worthwhile. During one RV outing it rained nearly every day. We did a lot of walking and hiking with umbrellas. But that week I put together the body of what will be a tablecoth. It will have a wide border with appliqued flowers on all sides. I did the top, but not the applique. I actually LOVE to applique, but after the week away, I put the top into a box and there it sat for a long time. It is one of the projects I hope to finish this winter. Just another UFO on the shelf for now. I imagine that all of you needleart people out there have a few UFOs among you, no matter what is your desired medium.
