Slow Snowman & Lavender

It's been a busy week. Not as much snowman stitching as I would have liked, but that's okay. At this rate, he'll be lucky if he's done by Christmas. 

Some progress was made on his lower half. As you can see, not all the words are stitched.  Can any guess what the phrase will read? If you are thinking "Let It Snow," you are correct. Although, I certainly don't want to think about the white stuff in July. 

Here are just a few photos from last weekend's lavender outing. I feel fortunate to have such a charming place within an hour's drive from my home. A link to farm, which is only five years old, will be at end of post.  Perhaps you can imagine the pleasant lavender fragrance that sweetly drifts between the many rows.

Indigo Lavender Farms, Imlay City, Michigan
Niece & Great Niece :-)

These plants are only three years old.
Variety is Phenonemal which produces long elegant stems.

There are thousands of lavender plants!

Don't get too close ;-) 

Munstead variety ~ Fragrant

I hope to add a few more stitches to the Slow Snowman,
today on Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy and her kindred stitchers.

May you enjoy your Sunday and have a good week!


P.S. My new favorite color is purple!

Your snowman is looking lovely. You are lucky to have such a great place so close to home. And a great basket full of lavender to take home too! What's also nice is it wasn't full of people so I'm sure you could enjoy it even more! Have a good week.

Such a fun gingham background for your snowperson to be stitched onto!

A couple of years ago I was able to enjoy the Lavendar fields in Provence. That beautiful color and aroma is heaven scent.

Your snowman is coming along, I love seeing his progress. What gorgeous lavender. I love that one, mine must be a different variety, and right now looking sort of parched by the heat we have been having. What a fun adventure!

The lavendar farm looks like a very special place! And every stitch on that cute little snowman counts!
