Peaceful Sunday

Yesterday was our anniversary and "The Man of The Place" had taken last week off so he could do a few things around here and spend time celebrating. We had taken a couple days to get away and relax. We went to Mount Magazine State Park and spent the night in the lodge and the 2 days of hiking some of the trails there. It is a beautiful spot and the lodge was too.

Being the highest spot in Arkansas, the views were spectacular. 

This is me sitting on one of the many bluffs, enjoying the view. 
One can see at least 50 miles away and on a clearer day I wouldn't doubt a 100 miles or more.
We went out to dinner Friday evening at the same place we had our first date, that was pretty cool.
So needless to say I haven't done much sewing or gardening this past week.
Today was a nice peaceful day spent with a close friend and stitching. I have been preoccupied with stuff on the farm and going to and fro to California that our visits have been far and few between.
So it was good to spend time catching up with each others lives.

I am stitching on the last of the 12" blocks for the Words to Live By quilt.

I have the 4 corner blocks prepped

but have the large center block left to prep. Then it's making the HST. If I counted right there is 704 HST.
Just a few don't you think.

I'm linking up at Kathy's Quilts

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
