Greg and I just got back from our annual "No Tech" vacation at my parents cabin in the NE Georgia Mountains. By no tech I mean no internet or cable services - only NBC on the tv. It was a gray and cold week. We loved every second of it! Plenty of time to stitch, read, watch movies and just be together without distraction. The temperatures were about 30 degrees less than what we are experiencing here in Florida. Yep, the loooong hot summer has started. Not my favorite time of year.
I took some knitting and my sewing machine. The sewing machine didn't see the light of day. I did knit a bit but stitching and reading captured my interest. I finished Hallow Eden. What a joy it was to stitch! I also started a new project but don't have pictures as yet.

Here is a close up of the snake. Oddly enough, my favorite part of this project is those little stars one of which you can see a bit further up. The use of muted color with the bright bits really seem to catch my eye.
So it's back to work tomorrow. Exciting news for me in that area - on June 1st I'll be starting a new position with the same employer in another division. I'm very excited about it! Lots of new things to learn, little to no travel, and while it started as a lateral move it's ended up being a promotion.
I have lots of blog reading to still catch up on and I hope to do that today and tomorrow. I'm not feeling overly inspired to do much today. I hope everyone has a great Sunday and that your stitches are happy!
