Summertime in full swing.

August is truly a summer month in every sense of the word.  The weather is hot, the gardens are bursting and we are enjoying a visit from our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, Lucy.  They live far away, so their visits are treasured.

Perry County, PA is a quiet place full of country vistas, Amish buggies, and a slower pace of life.  Our plans may include a trip to the safari park, swimming at the big pool at Buffalo State Park, a proper luncheon at a tea shop, possibly a visit to an amusement park, and definitely hosting our annual corn hole party. 

So, with summer in mind, I’ll share some of my Cape Cod inspired rug designs.  I’m excited that I will be going to the Cape once again at the beginning of October.  That’s my favorite time of the year when there are fewer vacationers and a more laid back pace.

These designs are available as patterns on the Shop page of my website.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the special times with family.
