Slow Stitching Sunday

Mr. Wonderful and I decided to take an impromptu trip to visit my parents. You know what that means, slow stitching in the car! I just might get my January goal for Brinton Hall done sooner rather than later! The first corner is done and I might get the second one done before the end of the day.  

 
Hexies are such a great project for the car. We stopped at a fun little shop and I picked up these FQs. I’ve already prepared some hexies with them!

 
I especially like this one with presidents on it. 

 
We are also enjoying some lovely views through the Upper Peninsula. 

  
 God sure paints a magnificent sky!
 

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts

    I’ve never tried stitching on a car journey before, though I have on the train. Lovely photos.

    I haven’t tried stitching while in the car….just knitting socks. I may have to give it a try!

    Having some hand stitching to look forward to almost makes me look forward to long car trips.

    I love stitching hexies in the car — especially on long trips. It makes the time pass so much more quickly! The horizon picture is lovely; God really does do marvelous handiwork Himself! 🙂

    Your fat quarter finds are very pretty. Enjoy your car-stitching. I can knit and crochet in the car, but I find stitching difficult.

  6. A great day… hexies, fabric purchases, and gorgeous scenery!

    I knew you too were from Michigan but I didn’t know you had family in the UP. My parents retired and moved to the UP. They lived on Big Lake Manistque near Newberry. When my Mom passed away in 2006 I moved up there to take care of Dad. I lived there for 4 years until Dad passed. Your pictures reminded me so much of that time. My son lives outside of Marquette and we go up there 3 or 4 times a year. BTW…your hexies are beautiful. Hugs

  8. Hi,
    Your Hexies are beautiful. The view of your drive is awesome.
    Have a great day!

    I wish I could knit or stitch in the car but unfortunately I get car sick if I try. Your hexie are great!

    Yes, your hexies are gorgeous. The few I’ve made look rather pathetic, if truth be told. I was in the UP last summer all the way to Munising. It was hotter than home in central Va. And yet I’ve been in the UP in July and frozen. Part of hubby’s family live in and around Manistique. Beautiful scenery and amazing lighthouses too.
