Afternoon Roadtrip with Frank and my Husband

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis must realize by now that I often stitch in the car and today was no exception. My husband and I had the afternoon to ourselves so we took a drive in the country with a few stops along the way. I did some stitching on Frank in the car on the way to our first destination.

I actually did some stitching one night this week when Christine came over for a couple of hours of stitching.  You can see her project on her blog here.  She is making a wool candle mat for a Christmas gift.

I took this picture at our main stop this afternoon.  Some of you may recognize this place...Country Patchworks Fabrics and Quilts

I purchased some orange thread--I have been wanting to get a new spool of orange thread for months! Also, three pieces of fabric came home with me.  I love the snowmen riding in the trucks!

I also purchased something else while I was there but you will have to wait a few weeks until I can show it to you.

Our next stop was at the Dairy Queen, but I did not take any pictures of our ice cream!

On our way home, we were on the lookout for some pumpkins for our front porch.  We stopped at a farm on a country road where they had apples, onions, squash and pumpkins for sale.

I bought two types of squash ( a green one and a striped one) and white and orange pumpkins.
These pictures were taken at the farm. I decorated my porch when we got home but did not take a picture and now it is too dark.

We also saw some farmers out harvesting their soybeans.

It was a perfect day for a drive in the country!

There were even some leaves changing colour on a few trees.

I will be linking up with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching tomorrow.


  1. Oh your cross stitchery is coming along so well--will be watching how it comes those photos...hugs, Julierose

  2. Frank is growing by leaps and bounds...lovely scenery in this post as well! :)

  3. What a great afternoon drive with some wonderful stops. Those truck riding snowmen are cute. Love the variety of squash and pumpkins.

  4. Beautiful fall photos...sounds like a perfect day to me!

  5. Frank's looking good! I love the pumpkin pics - oh and your orange thread...yum!!! It's such a great time of year to be out and about :)

  6. Your cross stitch looks like an interesting project. I don't see how you can do that riding in the car...SKILL!

    I love the pumpkins. It is always fun to decorate for fall.

  7. Good for you being able to stitch while riding in a car. If I have a simple project, I am able to accomplish that. Your cross stitch appears intricate. Pretty autumn photos.

  8. I've never tried to cross stitch while during a car travel. I am curious to see what are you stitching, I 'll be looking forward to discover it. Love the pictures in special the tree with red leaves. Have a great week.

  9. Lovely photos - looks like the perfect day out, especially since you managed to take in a quilt shop and ice cream as well as everything else! More progress on Frank too, and he's looking good.
