Kathy reminds us each week to take time and rest and relax. This is an important reminder as we (me especially) are always go, go, go.
Here is Aidan's bulb that finally bloomed. Very pretty dutch iris.
Then it was home for a visit with Papa A who comes over Saturday afternoons for his kid fix. The kids decided to jump in the pool - way too chilly for me but at 70 they got in and played.
A little down time - Emily helped me make a spaghetti sauce to clear out the crisper for dinner. We added some meatballs and salad and called it a meal. Then it was off to the drive in theater to see Beauty and the Beast. Great movie and the kids had fun watching the movie from the front seat of the car. They played air hockey before the movie at the arcade.
That allowed me to finally prep 4 needles and start hand quilting my trip around the world quilt that is loaded on the Gracie frame. I got 4 needles in and prepped another 4. I decided I will echo the diamonds in the trip for each block.... we will see how it goes. I can't wait to get this one finished and onto my bed - it will be a completely hand pieced quilt when it gets done!
Linking up with the slow Sunday stitchers.
