Slow Stitching on Fathers Day...

The kids were up early to wrap their fathers day gifts and I had to print out some pictures to go in the frames they decorated. He got his dark roast coffee made in his french press and home made chocolate cake muffins with glaze. They taste just like the chocolate cake donuts from Dunkin donuts and take about 25 minutes to make - mostly being oven preheat time!

After some working today for me (Dad will be home with the kids for his Fathers Day!) we'll have a nice dinner on the grill and then some family time. After they are in bed I'll settle in to finish the green block and start on either the purple or red one. That is all that is left to the middle before I start on the borders! So excited!!!!!

I was working on this blue one Friday - I figured that counts for the RSC Challenge!

Aidan was working on a super secret project on Thursday with the sewing machine. He pulled from my scrap pile and made this monster for his Dad. The face is on the top side - two black eyes, pink nose and yellow mouth. The red tie and then the purple and red legs. All his own idea.

Linking up with RSC Challenge for light blue and Kathy's Quilts for Slow stitching Sunday.

  3. Hugs & Kisses is looking great - it seems both cats approve of it, too! Aidan's monster is adorable - what is it with boys and monsters? One of mine loved to draw them on everything!

  8. What a terrific monster! Sounds like Dad had a terrific Father's Day (happens in September here). I plan to give those chocolate cake muffins a go soon. Hugs and Kisses is looking good.

  10. You're making incredible progress on your Hugs and Kisses. And that monster that Aidan put together - so creative! My oldest grandson is a chocolaholic ... I think those muffins would be a huge hit, maybe with a chocolate glaze?
