Slow stitching Sunday....

Kathy reminds us each week to slow down and take some relaxing stitches and breathe. Tonight I plan to add some green to my 2 inch trip around the world quilt. This is row 15 for me! I have been thinking of the next color.... I'm thinking orange and then brown but who knows at this point. I'll have to pull some fabrics and see what looks good.

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

In order to make my week easier - I am trying to plan my weekly meals. As this is the last week before the kids start school, I decided everyone gets to select a meal of their choice! Greg chose crab cakes so that will be on for tonight. Emily chose breakfast for dinner (I figured she would have selected brats and potato salad!). Aidan chose bean burritos (a surprise as he loves taco's and carrots cooked in a chuck roast or risotto!). Me.... I was thinking kabobs but we'll see. One thing I do want to do as a family is make pot stickers. It has been a while since we did it and since everyone is home tomorrow night we'll do that on Monday evening. Now I just need sides and most of my weekly meals are planned! Time to head into work for me and hopefully with no rain we will be much busier today than yesterday. I got my lines marked on the green squares yesterday at work.... hehehe the benefits of being the owner!

  1. TATW is looking good! I still starting a new row to see how it will change the look of the quilt! I am determined to do 30 rows not sure how long that will take? Planning meal really helps doesn't it?

  3. TOTW is looking good. Great contrast in each row. Planning meals makes the week easier to manage. I usually start out well then fade off. Enjoyed some time sewing on a binding. Always relaxing stitching for me.

  6. I love how the center of the TATW seems to glow! Good luck with the menu planning. I always find it makes the shopping and cooking flow much easier when I start the week with a plan. I don't always stick to it, but at least there's a method to the madness!

  7. I don't know about you, but planning the sides is always the most difficult part of meal planning for me. I love your TAW ... that center just pops!

  8. I guess each round will require more fabric, so the choices will get fewer as you go!

  9. Really like your TATW. My daughter let her kids choose for the meal plans, too....and she was surprised.
