I only had a little bit of time for stitching this morning.
It was enough time, however, to finish this block of my Summertime Sampler...
As much as I don't enjoy doing French Knots, I do like the effect of them on the Hosta.
Then I got a start on the dreaded binding on my nephew's wedding quilt. I know, I know, this is something that people enjoy, lol....the only thing I like is that it means for a completed quilt!....and that this one will be done in time for the wedding!
Now, to get ready for my outing this morning.
I am going on a run with my friend to the Dundas Valley Conservation Area to re-run the route that is the Sulphur Springs Trail Run...even more special since my daughter and her girlfriend will be joining us.
I'll make sure to take some pictures. The first time I ran this trail was a practice run in the Spring...(I love this picture)....
.....and we came across a group of hikers taking a picture of their dogs....
So, you'll notice in those pictures, taken in April, the trees were still bare.
Flip forward to actual race-day a month later...
....everything was green and lush, a different kind of beauty from the month before. I also love this picture because it reminds me that at that moment I was quite choked up and almost in tears at the beauty around me.
Today I expect yet another beautiful run with the leaves starting to change colour. I just hope we don't get lost! This time we won't have a seasoned coach with us, or a group of runners in a race to keep us on track.....but we'll have a map! Wish us luck!
I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.
Have a lovely day!
