Family and Stitching

I had no idea it has been so long since I last posted.

Last weekend (June 12/13) I went to visit my cousin Bill and his family at his cottage in the Muskokas.  A bunch of the family was up to look at the memorial garden that was started 2 years ago after the death of my uncle Bill.

Saturday's weather was a little chilly and damp, but we enjoyed sitting around the camp fire.  Saturday night Bill and Tish cooked an amazing dinner for us.  Smoked roast beef, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, dill carrots, and these baked onions.  SO YUMMY!!

Sunday after a big filling breakfast we went for a boat ride around the lake of bays.

I didnt' get much stitching done but had a wonderful relazing weekend.
Here are some pictures from the weekend

Stitching Update

I do not feel like I have stitched much since my weekend in Georgian bay, but did manage to get a bit done especially this past weekend.

it's hard to stitch when your in the Muskokas since it is such a beautiful area and such a nice tribute.
Be always in stitches.
