weekending

What a lovely weekend!  I was able to get away on Friday and Saturday with some friends.  We headed north to a beach house where we were visited by the most lovely eagle.  We watched in silence as he swooped down to the water to get a bite to eat and then settled on the roof of the boat house.  There were hummingbirds in the afternoon and otters in the morning.  Just what we needed to help us make the break between school and summer.  The weather was a bit wet so we headed to town and visited the best little shops, fabric, yarn, and books.  And I had time to begin a new knitting project that I will share later this week.  We are all heading back to work for one more week of paperwork and organizing but I am sure we will not feel the same stress.
I arrived home to some squishy mail from Sue Spargo - the June Cuppa kit.  I have high hopes of getting caught up on the cutting and basting for these blocks and plan to take them with me on my next two weekends away in July.
The sun is out now, just in time to take my dad out for brunch.  Hope your weekend is lovely and perhaps includes a bit of fiber and thread.
I am off to visit Kathy and Ruth to see what others are stitching and celebrating.
