Slow Stitching in the County

     Dwight and I are visiting my sister in Prince Edward County this weekend.  It's the Maple Syrup festival weekend with lots to do  visiting local farms that tap for maple syrup.   This afternoon we are going to hear a talk from an arborist and go for a guided hike through the bush.  Should be fun.  Last night we went to Jackson Falls Inn for dinner and a concert with the Rockabilly Band Whoa Nellie.  If you ever get a chance to hear this band they are really a lot of fun.  They play a lot of Country Music from the 40's with a fast beat.

     There's plenty of quiet time here as well.  My sister lives out in the country side and there is no noise at all.  Here is the view out her back window.


     That's Lake Ontario just beyond the field.  

     I brought my E.P.P. with me to work on in the quiet times.  Today I'll be working on the background diamonds .  I've decided t go with Kona Snow.  Here's my latest star with the snowy diamonds ready to go.


     I'm joining the other Slow Stitchers at Kathy's blog.
