Long Time no Blog

This is a lovely waterfall inside Olympic Nation Park. I was able to travel to Washington state earlier this month for work and got to arrange for a free day to view the Park. The weather was fantastic there while we visited and it was a relaxing visit. What amazes me the most about the west coast of the US is that you can be standing and looking a the ocean and the snow covered mountains at the same time. We were able to see the stacks at the beach in the park.
We also were able to stand on Hurricane Ridge where the snow in the roads was still about 10 ft tall on the sides after the plow ran through it. Here I am standing at the top of Hurricane Ridge, Olympic Mountain in the back ground. 
 I got a bit of stitching finished on the airplane ride but the plane was packed and I gave up after a while. I was able to complete the camp piece from April. ( how long ago that seems now) I am saving the photo until I get the Glory House assembly completed. Hopefully this weekend will offer time for that. I was able to pick up another piece last night that is very nearly completed. Stitched a few hours on it until my eyes gave out for bedtime. No stitching or quilting photos in this post but hopefully soon. My mom is living at the lake for the summer. Still a bit more remodeling there before we can consider that a place to relax. We are having a half bath but in upstairs and it just seems to be taking forever. This is what happens when you can only get the work done of the weekends. I am so ready to have all the transitional stuff finished so I can get back to my stitching and quilting life. The dining room table is loaded down with the Batiks I plan to use for a quilt for my bed. I am ready to cut but need a block of time to get started. 

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Holiday state side and took a minute to remember those who fought for the freedom we enjoy. The older I get the more humbled I am by those selfless people gave so much for our Country. 

Happy stitching and thanks for stopping by,
