Beautiful Sunny Days!

I'm not a good patient and have been looking at screens against docs orders. Well...I'm not too bad I think. We had a lovely vacation by the lake in MN and that so relaxing.
Pattern is Spring Flowers Shawl by Pattern Paradise.


Take time to be with nature in silence.








The beginning of the Spring Flowers shawl.
 I finished the toddler quilt I got from Alicia, laid here in the guest bedroom double bed so you can see the size is large enough for toddler or a lap quilt.
 I tried adding a label just because it was cute. I am only making this for my granddaughter and not for sale.

 Our cabin at the lake.
 Some of the flowers back home
 Flowers at home
 Peace at the lake
 The cabins at the lake
One can't be in MN without spotting one of these.
I'm enjoying our flowers and vegetable garden (even if it's tiny.) I am reading The Lost Princess by George MacDonald. It's the second time I am reading it. Everyone that has kids or grandchildren should read this. It's a great book. We continue to watch our regular Netflix program. We finished the first season of Broadchurch. I found it depressing so I'm not sure if I want to continue to watch another. Any idea for something lighter ? We are also watching Poldark and that one I have been really enjoying.  
Hope you're enjoying your days despite the issues this planet has.  May the peace that surpasses all understanding be with you. Ph. 4-7
Take care,
Angela

  6. Absolutely gorgeous photos of that lake that looks so calm and such a pretty blue. How nice it is to have a cabin that you can retreat. I would love that.
    Beautiful quilting work. I love your needle work too.
    We like to get away and leave t.v. and newspapers behind. I can't believe half of what's in them anyway.
    Calm is what is needed. You have the perfect spot.
    Happy Saturday

    1. I'm well, thank you Angela. I just try to stay away from screens as much as possible because of the issue of pressure in the eyes. Wish you had left a link to your blog so I could reciprocate the visit.
