A couple of weeks ago we were able to spend a few days at our cabin in the rocky mountains. It is not far from where we live but just getting away is difficult with all of the things that need to be done.
It took a day to unwind but then the peace and unhurried pace took over as all of the demands and stress melted away. I usually have a To-Do list as long as my arm and never seem to get any of them crossed off but those few days were so wonderful. I had time to set and think and create and get a few of the To-Do’s finished. Here are a couple of pictures of the beautiful area around the cabin.

Later I had an opportunity to go to a seminar and spend two days stitching with out all of the daily tasks demanding part of my time and attention. I was able to finish stitching this bird while I was there. Once the base stitching was in I was able to take threads of the colors that I wanted and use them like paint to get the final embroidery.
