Summer stitching is fun even when away by the seaside at the beach condo. Though the boats, the sea and the sand are not really coordinated with the atmosphere in this piece, it was great to stitch it there.
It was a very relaxing time and I also managed to have some study time every day which was great. We spent some time with friends from Burgundy and Switzerland and enjoyed the clear blue water of the Mediterranean sea.
How do you like this second part? Isn't it the most adorable cottage barn? I love the flowers on top of the roof! Don't you?
The atmosphere is very different from the boats and the palm trees, but I am sure the lady enjoyed the vacation as much as I did ;-) At least, she didn't complain :-)
I was really happy to finish part 2 on time but being away, I could not start part 3. Fortunately DD1 was home and texted me the photo of part 3 as soon as it arrived and it is another gorgeous part.
When I arrived home on Friday 14, I immediately started it!
I do not want to be late for part 4 which will be in my mailbox when school resumes. Yes, it is just round the corner now.
I still have two more weeks off.
I garden a bit every day, make some progress on the SMC 2015 and work on the last border of Mountmellick. But I still spend 3 to 4 hours for work and have planned a few days of collaborative work with colleagues. It is great to have time for everything and not be in a frantic mode.
Days are getting shorter now but it is still warm though not so hot anymore... it is just a perfect end of summer.
I hope you are enjoying a peaceful time too ;-)
