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,


  1. Your post was peaceful Angela. Love the photos. Take care.

  2. So many beautiful pictures, Angela. I hope you feel well and enjoy the rest of sunny July!!

  3. What a beautiful place to sit and it always feels good to be out in the sunshine! Love the cute label for your handmade quilt. Enjoy your afternoon! Hugs, Diane

  4. Beautiful images, a lovely antidote to the negativity out 'there' xx Take care X

  5. El libro de MacDonal me parece una buena sugerencia. Me alegro de que estés disfrutando de un verano tranquilo y relajado. Un beso

  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

  7. Mesmerizing pictures!!! glad you had great vacation :)

  8. It looks like you had a wonderful vacation! Your photos of the lake are so pretty. I'm sure your little granddaughter will treasure the quilt you made for her for many years to come.

  9. Thank you for the visit and comments! It's raining in here. I plan on cleaning the house today and listening to Marie Sioux (Faces In The Rocks.)
