Slow Sunday Stitching and Swimming


Welcome to Slow Sunday Stitching! 
The summer of 2016 is coming to an end here which means it's time to put away the pink flamingos and prepare for the cooler weather. 
You never really know where your stitching projects might take you, and this summer my stitching project and I went to a pool party. It was lovely weather for enjoying some relaxing swimming and stitching time. 


One last float around the pool seemed like a good idea, after all it was a really hot day and summer is almost over! 
But then the floaty wasn't coming back to the water's edge, so we had to send the shark in for a search and rescue mission.
Mission accomplished! 


Life is Beautiful block #28

The stitchery was eventually returned to shore and work has continued on the pineapple block. Hopefully it will be finished before fall officially arrives.



What adventures have your stitching projects taken you on lately? We love to see your hand stitching projects, so link up your blog post below.

At least your project stayed dry . . . my fell into the lake (while I was trying to be cool) and had to fish it out with a net! LOL! Lots of EPP projects in the link up so far this morning! It's nice to be back! :)
