Slow Stitching Sunday....

I prepped this appliqué with back basting last night. I must have been tired since I back basted the whole thing instead of one part at a time! Oh well, it made it easy to pick it up this morning with some quiet time.

Looks like rain is starting in the afternoon.... some slow stitching time will happen then. For now... time to head out and weed a bit before the heat gets too intense. On the way home from The Crayola Experience last night around 6 and the thermometer in the car went from 99 to 100 briefly about a mile from our house. Crazy hot!

I looked out the back slider window and saw this one on the ground.... then he flew off to the trees. There are a pair of hawks in my back yard! This one perched on the pool for a little bit.

Better go out and help Emily in the garden. She is out getting the tools ready for us.


  1. Great capture of the hawk! :) Enjoy your stitching later on the 1857 block...looks like it's going to be gorgeous.

  2. The block looks great. I really like the colors you have chosen. The little crown is a bit tricky but well worth the effort.

  3. What a great picture of the visiting hawk. Enjoy your stitching time while it rains and keep cool.

  4. Not 100 degrees already! It's awfully early for that hot of temps. Take care! ~Jeanne

  5. 100 degrees?? Ugh! And speaking of weather, is that tropical storm heading your way? Stay safe.

  6. I'd be melting!!! That hawk looks huge in the photo. Enjoy your stitching time.
