A little winter break

 
It's been one of "those" weeks around here including, poor, sick kids and a couple of snowstorms with a ton of new snow to shovel. Good excuses to just stay in and sew, but after a few days I was starting to feel like a hermit. So it was good yesterday to walk away from this...
and get out into this.
We took the kids for an overnight to one of my favorite places - Midway, Utah. Clean, fresh air and pretty scenery. So that's all I've got for you today.  Scenic views and a messy kitchen table. Lots of work going on behind the scenes for a few upcoming tutorials and projects later this month. But it was nice to walk away from it all for 24 hours. Back to the hamster wheel.

Those views are amazing! So pretty! Snow makes everything seem clean for the first couple of days!

Wow!!! What beautiful scenery (even on the kitchen table ;-)

What gorgeous photos.

WOW, Amy -- that's just breathtaking! We've got sickie kids and dreary weather at our house, too, but no snow in North Carolina. About an inch fell down a week ago, but it was gone by morning. My poor kids get so excited, running outside, trying to make snowballs out of freezing rain and slush. :-(

I love seeing pictures of snow. But pictures only. And you are right, taking a break, even from what you love, is always a good thing.

That looks like a lovely getaway.
Question...what thread do you use in your Bernina? I have been using auriful, 50wt. but the 820 really doesn't like it.

Yeah, January was kind of an under the weather month in my house. I definitely know what you mean by that hermit feeling. It looks like the trip to Midway was lovely, though :-)
