I picked up an overtime shift today at work. With everyone taking vacation we always run short on bodies to do the work. Helps with the holiday expenses!
Not much stitching accomplished since I've returned. I received a small amount of stash but I'm expecting my order from SB&B next week. In the meantime I'm still working on Coeur d'Ete. I just haven't felt like getting back to my Easter Fairy. I'm getting the itch to start something else. Perhaps an autumn piece. Hmm.... time to check out my stash!
We had a lot of fun on vacation playing with our new camera. Here's a couple of shots we took.
The heron was a visitor who showed up on our dock our first morning there. Bob came sailing back into the cottage looking for the camera when he spotted it! The loons were regular visitors. The cottage sits on a point, so there is lake both in front of and behind it and we hear the loons calling back and forth to each other. This shot was taken while were on the boat.
I saw quite a bit of wildlife just this morning on my way to work. As I headed out of our village there was a deer running along the shoulder of the road. I can't imagine where it came from since there are no wooded areas nearby. It ran alongside the road for quite a bit before it finally darted out in front of me and headed into a corn field. Then just after I got onto the highway I came across a rather large porcupine who couldn't make up his mind whether or not to cross the road. Everytime I tried to go around him he'd change direction! Finally there was a family of raccoons making a trek across the highway. I certainly wasn't getting anywhere very fast for sure!!
