I have not stitched on my SAL project for this update. I am still excited that I found a solution to the challenge of placement on the fabric and I will be stitching again this week. Here is the picture from last week:
What I had been doing instead was getting ready for our yearly family backpacking trip. We gathered all our packs and gear, inspected them (some repairs were necessary – good hand sewing skills come in handy!) and then purchasing the rest that we needed.
We backpacked in the back country of Yosemite and it was gorgeous! There was really no one else there – we did encounter one family on the way out and one on the way back, but it was super easy to distance. Here are a couple of photos from our trip:
This picture is actually at then end. We went int and out of this trail head. I couldn’t find the picture from the start of the trip where our smiles were much bigger and we didn’t look quite so tired!
This year I used hiking poles for the very first time and they made such a huge positive difference!
Chain Lakes on our first night. Such a gorgeous place!
Morning time on the second day! Right after this photo was taken, two of the kids jumped into the lake and swam out to the island in the middle. Such a fun time!
I should have more to show at our next update. This is such a fun group of stitchers to be working with. We are from all over the world and touch base once (or more!) every three weeks to show progress on one of our projects. I am so grateful to everyone!
