Slow Stitching Sunday....

Today was our Thanksgiving meal with my father in law. The turkey and all the fixings came out great. My mother in law and her brother Charlie, who is down from Ohio for a few days, came over for some apple pie  and pumpkin moose (as Aidan calls it) this afternoon and to visit. A nice time was had by all and I think the kids did a great job of entertaining everyone. Aidan made a Christmas present for Uncle Charlie - a paper airplane which he wrapped up in a Christmas bag with a name tag and a bow. He was talked into letting him open it today and some paper airplane flying in the living room did happen.

Now it is time to sit and relax for a bit with my apple quilt.

Shrek is on tv and everyone will have a quiet evening I hope. The kids go back to school tomorrow and Greg goes back to work. It has been wonderful having everyone home since Wednesday...... but it will be very nice at 8:05 tomorrow morning when the house is peaceful. I have plans to go into my sewing room and sew on something. It may be the mystery, it may be quilting the coin quilt. I'll see what mood I am in tomorrow. Tuesday will be work - month end needs to get done but I will put it off for one day and enjoy some sewing time.
Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other slow stitching people are relaxing with today.


  1. Hope you enjoy apple quilting and Shrek watching... a perfect evening!
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

  2. I hope you managed to have a nice relaxing evening. Your quilting looks really nice!

  3. A nice way to end your long weekend. And as nice as it is to have everyone there, I'm sure it's nicer still to have your normal routine back. ;-) I can't wait to see what you sew today.

  4. Even though we own Shrek we watched it too. LOL. Stitching is looking good...I am thinking I need to get out my little doll quilt and start hand quilting on it!

  5. Oh how sweet of Aidan to make a present for Uncle Charlie. Sweet quilting too.

  6. Lovely stitching in your photo and your holiday family time sounds wonderful :)
