Slow Stitching Sunday.....

I finally got some quality sewing time in yesterday afternoon! It felt so good to sew with the machine.  I got my two lime green sampler stars done and started assembling my alternate blocks.


Then to round off the evening.... I got some hand quilting in on my Hugs and Kisses quilt while Greg went to pick up Aidan from Grandma. Emily has a sleepover and will be returned this afternoon. Then we'll use some of my birthday $ to go to Yamata's with the kids - it is a Japanese steak house with the habichi grill. The kids love going there (me too!) and watching the show the chef's put on for us.

I also got a little hand stitching in this morning while the boys were busy making my birthday cake (it was last Wednesday). A devils food cake made into a cat using round cake pans..... and hopefully not a snake like the snickering little boy thought would be funny. I don't like snakes! There was a black one in the driveway when I was dropping the kids to Grandma yesterday morning.....yes, I backed up the car and called her to let her know. She came out and shooed it away. =)
This was my helper this morning while the boys were cooking breakfast. I hear our orders are up so must go let Aidan serve us our breakfast - sausage, pancakes and eggs with coffee. Just what I ordered!

Hope you get some time to enjoy a little slow stitching and relax today. I'm linking up with the other Slow Stitchers at Kathy's Quilts. Head on over and enjoy the link show.

  1. Your breakfast sure sounds a lot better than mine this morning. Especially considering that you didn't have to cook it. I love your sampler stars with that alternate layout ... am I forgetting that's what you were going to do with them? (Not surprising as my rememberer just isn't what it used to be.) I can't wait to see that quilt finished - it'll be gorgeous.

    1. I think Greg and I went this summer but it was April before that for Emily's birthday with all of us. Yes, I do have some cute supervisors to 'help' with my quilting.

  9. Devil's food cake sounds yummy - could you smell it baking while you were stitching?
    Happy birthday for last Wednesday x
    Your sampler is looking great.

  10. I think the cat was thinking about how unfair life is that a quilt was taking up valuable lap space that should be available for cat use only...
