Slow stitch Sunday

Today is a busy day at out house. We are celebrating Aidan's 5th birthday today (really it is on Wednesday the 6th) with Grandparents and we are in the process of creating a dinosaur cake and some salads to go with the burgers and brats that will cook on the grill for lunch.


If I get a few minutes here and there I plan to do a little stitching on the parasol block from the grandmothers choice BOM. I have sets of 4 done on the ruffle. I just need to finish getting this together.


Head on over to Quilter Kathy and see what others are working on for this slow stitch Sunday.

Edit: I was able to get this block done today! Here it is.

  1. Cute dinosaur cake! My youngest son would have loved it. Come to think of it, he'd probably still love it (he's 24 - yikes!). Love your Parsol block-great colors!! Hope you have a great celebration!

  5. What an adorable cake. I hope he loved it. The block is also adorable, but I am sure the cake was more popular.
