~~~~~~~~~ No Beading, No CQ, No Stitching ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~ But What a Wonderful Weekend ~~~~~~~~~

This past weekend no beading, no CQ, no items for FAT or BAD -- but what a wonderful weekend it was.We spent the weekend with our friends in central Illinois on their farm --the colors were still somewhat intact there --thought you'd enjoy them.

We were able to take our grandson, Drew, with us as he had Thursday off school. He was gone from sun up to sun down playing with the dog, walking the grounds and just having a wonderful time. He was also able to drive a tractor and help load and unload dirt.


The pig belongs to a tenant on the farm -- it is a "pet" and they take it for walks, it has it's own tire swing and is a big (over 400 pound) spoiled baby. Also has a fantastic "house of straw" made for him. Guess no one has told him the story of the 3 Little Pigs and what happened to the 'house of straw".

How wonderful -- what a great weekend -- and stitching, beading and such can't compare to a making great memories with a grandchild.

Doesn't a weekend "away" from projects refresh your creative muse? I find everything in moderation is key. Thanks for sharing a weekend away.
