Sewing Staycation: Update Day 1

Good Morning!!

Let me start by saying, we are going to need another day. Yesterday was super-fun, super-inspiring and I dropped into bed exhausted but not a single stitch was sewn. None. Here’s what did happen……

  • Started out the day with coffee but no scones. Door number 1 said, “Get up and make scones.” Door number 2 said, “Sleep longer.” I chose Door number 2.
  • Loaded Dunkin in the car (“Load Up Dunkin!”) and went to Sewing Sister’s house. Yayyy!!! She’s on the journey with us! Triple S (Sewing Sister’s Sweetie) took a quick picture to mark the beginning of our adventure and we were on our way.
Isn’t her back yard beautiful? Don’t we look like we are going to have fun? Doesn’t it look like Dunkin wishes I would let him down?
  • Got distracted many times on our way to the North Umpqua. We stopped at yard sales; the shop of a friend of ours; a couple of more yard sales; and oh yes, one more yard sale!
  • Arrived at Susan Creek at the perfect time!! It was mid-ish afternoon, there were hardly any people, the sun had dropped slightly so there was lots of shade, the river was stunning, it was just right.
  • I want to take a minute and thank all of you for allowing me to see where I live with fresh eyes. I’ve lived in Douglas County so long I’m used to it. But when I looked at things the way you might see them, I remembered how special and beautiful this place is. Taking pictures to share the day with you was a joy!!

And speaking of pictures……

I can’t believe how clear the water is!!!
  • We hiked our little legs off and had a wonderful time!!!
Everyone had a blast!!!
  • By the time I got back home, I was tired!! I thought I would at least go through the plastic bins and decide what to sew but then something happened….
The swing called out my name…….
  • I laid down for just a tiny minute……but then the cat jumped up on me.
  • And how was I going to interrupt this kind of happiness??? So we stayed on the swing. Watched the sun go down. And we are definitely going to need to add another day…….
