Slow Stitching Sunday....

The boys are going to have some quality time today while I head to work and Emily is at Grandma's for a sleepover and will be returned this afternoon. They made a coffee cake for breakfast which should be coming out of the oven in a minute or two. I asked what Aidan wanted to make for dinner with the three boneless skinless chicken breasts and he ran and got the chicken cookbook he has seen. He picked out chinese sweet and spicy taco's. We have everything we need to make them so we'll see how dinner comes out tonight!

Since they are on duty for dinner I think I'll get a little hand work in today on my midget appliqué block. I need to undo that one leaf and add the 12 leaves so I can call this one finished.

It looks like rain today so I'll bring some 2.5 inch squares and my pencil and ruler to work - I might have time to mark some hand sewing lines on the back of the squares for the trip around the world block. Time to start the downward slopes on that one this week.



Head on over to Kathy's Quilts to see what other slow stitches are being worked on today.

  2. Lucky you getting to stitch! I got my wing finished earlier but then spent several hours on making homemade pizza and cooking it on the grill. It was worth it! So yummy. Still need to do clean up and then maybe I can at least give that eagle a beak.

  3. There is always progress of some kind happening here. Unlike my place!

  4. You are making the Midget blocks! I have collected ALL the block patterns since I found them 3 years ago. I have several boxes of 30's repros just waiting for me to impulsively start. But alas, I have so many others on the go.

  6. I never thought I was a fan of purple, but seeing your Midget block and your TATW is making me re-think that. ;-)
