My mom had surgery a few weeks ago so I have had some added time for a little hand stitching. I contemplated doing some Grandmother Flower Garden flowers, but decided instead on some Orange Peel blocks. I enjoyed working on the ones in my Trifle Dish quilt. There is a fun QAL going on through the summer for the Orange Peel blocks. This is what I have so far.
We managed to slip away for a few days for our annual family fishing trip. I was not great with picture taking this time, but here are a few shots of the kids and grandchildren with whom we made memories.

There is nothing quite as relaxing as having a pole in the water, waiting for a nibble and enjoying a view like this. It recharges the body batteries!
