Slow stitching Sunday... .or prepping as the case may be.

Well, the children have learned how to share! Daddy has had a sore throat for a few days and I started sneezing yesterday and have the lovely stuffed head which sudafed is currently attempting to dry up. Yes Mom, I went through the house with clorox wipes and got the light switches, remotes, phones, ipads, door handles..... in the hopes of killing those bugs so we all get better quickly.

The kids were out playing this morning for a bit. Grandpa A came over for a little visit and Greg has headed into work to clean and buff the floors after closing at 3 today. We were going to do that back in December when we were closed for the week of Christmas but someone had to have some lovely things happen and while I was resting and doing doctor visits he was on kid duty. They will get done today.... before we get a big inventory shipment tomorrow morning.  Fingers crossed that the spa's arrive. I popped a movie Brave in for the kids to watch and I plan to do some cutting out of fabrics (Kaleidoscope quilt) at the kitchen island while we watch it. I recorded it a while ago but none of us has seen it. So far they were scared at the first scene with the bear before the title even came on!

I also need to shake the dust off this very old project that has been sitting out on my table in the sewing room for quite a few months. This project is a Y2K BOM from Joann's Fabrics. Yikes... how did it get to be 2014 so quickly?

Does that count as a very old project Kathy? I hope to finish prepping this so I can maybe applique this a bit later tonight after the kids are in bed or while waiting in the car line at school this week. I have three other applique blocks for this quilt that are waiting to be started once this one is completed. All the pieced blocks are completed and waiting patiently in their slot with the finishing kit in the sweater holder in the closet.

Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other lovely hand work is being worked on today. I will warn you..... there are lots of pretty projects being slow stitched... you may just have to start a few new ones.

Oh my. I haven't thought about my Y2K project for years. It is stashed away...somewhere.... and maybe I'll find it and finish it someday. Congratulations on getting back to yours. I suspect there are many of us that you might inspire.

I have an applique block I started last October still on the light box. The leaves are all prepped and I haven't touched it all winter. Generally that is my summer slow stitching. Hope your whole family gets to feeling better!

Oh no! Hope you and your hubby feel better soon!! I need to bite the bullet and learn to do some applique!
