Hand quilting Sunday....

After a busy Saturday it was time to slow down and enjoy some slow stitching... which has flowed into this morning =)

We did breakfast with Santa yesterday at the church where the scouts meet. They have a great Santa and lots of fun things for the kids to do - decorate their pancakes and hot cocoa, crafts, visit Santa and they each got to choose a book this year! They both chose a Magic Tree House book  - a series they both love.

We then dropped them to Grandma's so they had time to go to the parade in her town and we had time  to exit before they closed down the streets. A little time at home selecting health and dental insurance before the deadline on the 15th. We then finally did our 'anniversary' date from back in September using a gift certificate to Outback in the early afternoon. A couple of hours of playing in the sewing room picking up and prepping some midget appliqué and then Grandma returned the monsters.... I mean kids. I settled in with a little hand quilting on my Hugs and Kisses and made a lot of good progress on the first side of the outer border last night and only have 4.5 peels left on the first side! About 45 minutes of hand quilting and I get to turn the corner! 

Linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday. Head on over and see what other projects are being relaxed with today.


  1. Cute picture with Santa...they look like little angels to me!

  2. Magic Tree House books! I read every one of those to my grandson when he was little (he just turned 18 on Friday.) I know those books developed his love of history and traveling. We passed them on to others and often were the gifts to buy for other little ones. Thanks for giving me happy memories this morning.

  3. Those are cute little monsters with Santa :)

  4. Busy busy days! Enjoy the turning of the corner! I just went around the bend about half an hour ago. So satisfying! Slow and steady gets there eventually.

  5. They are so cute. Growing up fast. I must look into the Magic Tree Books.

  6. Such fun holiday activities to enjoy!
    So exciting when it's time to turn a corner :)

  7. What a great picture with Santa. They made sure Santa saw their good side. Your quilting is looking great.
