A Slow Stitching Week

It's been a very nice week. We took off most of last week and took a trip to Eureka Springs, AR.  It's a touristy town, but a very laid back one.  We rented a little cottage not far from down town and pretty much just hung out. We walked a lot, ate a lot, read a lot, and I stitched a bit.  The cottage had a wonderful front porch.




It was well sheltered from the rain. Since it rained a lot, we did spend a lot of time out here or in the cottage.  I worked on my long term travel project, the Butterfly medallion.

 



I just need to finish the back stitch around the lower part of the wing and I'll be halfway finished with this butterfly. 

I'm taking today off so I can kinda get caught up on laundry and a few chores before heading back into the office tomorrow.  I'm also hoping to get in a solid afternoon of stitching time. Why waste a whole vacation day on not fun stuff?  

Linking up with Monday Design Wall  and Monday Making this week.

What a cute cottage. It looks peaceful and like a great place to vacation.
I love the softness of your butterfly.

looks nice - I know that wasn't my nephews cottage that he rents there to guests - I know that theirs is close to the downtown area and has a small backyard with a firepit and 4 large chairs. I have to find out from him the address of it and rent it for a couple days sometime, I love to wonder in and out of the shops there.

That looks like a wonderful getaway, Kate! So glad you were able to do it. The butterfly cross-stitch is the perfect take-along project, too!

That does sound like a good way to decompress for a few days. Good for you!!

That sounds like a wonderful weekend, and I like that you took an extra day off to get settled. Enjoy your fun sewing afternoon!

Laundry is not fun??? Have you considered playing with soap suds :-D Glad you had a fun weekend. I am a big proponent of a day to recover from the vacation.

How wonderful that you were able to spend time away, even if it did rain.

I enjoy going to Eureka Springs, in fact we were married there. Was thinking about going back this year.
