Not so slow Sunday.....

Finally a day off with everyone home and feeling well! That means..... clean the house day. The main area's got vacuumed and picked up this morning before Grandpa arrived for a visit. (Emily did the living room and Aidan did the dining room and front room). Yes, I go through and vacuum after them to make sure it all gets done. Just need to dust and then get them to clean up and vacuum and dust their rooms.... sweeping and mopping floors is next for me along with cleaning the bathrooms. We did a little weeding and deadheading out front as well after our visit with Grandpa. Greg is in charge of the laundry today and some is spinning and some is drying. Mac and cheese for lunch for me and Emily while Aidan is cooking up some raman noodles. At some point I plan to till the last quarter of the garden and weed by the corn. The rest got planted on Friday morning (my only day home this week!) - beans, carrots, beets, cabbage, broccoli, swiss chard and some romaine lettuce. I can't wait until this evening to settle in with some hand work... but what hand work will it be?

Hand quilting on the hugs and kisses? No progress made since the last time I showed this. Hopefully DH selects a decent show to watch tonight so I can sit in my recliner and stitch!

Hand work on the orange trip block? I need to take out two top sides of the pumpkins.... oops I got my squares mixed up. The bottom left corner is correct.

Some hand appliqué maybe on the midget blocks? I did a recap post here, and have since got all the yellow frames onto the last 8 blocks in that picture. Time to make some more.

Time will tell but until that happens I need to get to work on finishing cleaning the house. It is long overdue (two weeks since a vacuum and longer with a mop!). Think I'll finally have a week where I get to be home so I can sew? I know I have a few hours of work Tuesday morning at the store while Greg does an install....... but hopefully that is the only day I need to go in this week. Tomorrow is prep for girl scouts and organizing Aidan's popcorn sales and entering my girls nut and candy into the computer. I also have lunch with Emily at school tomorrow - I did Aidan on Friday. Must keep it even you know!

Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what slow stitching is happening today around the world. We in the US are celebrating Columbus Day and our neighbors up north are celebrating Thanksgiving.

Unstitching the orange squares will be quick, and then it's fun stitching from there...enjoy!
Thanks for linking up and contributing to a wonderful Slow Sunday Stitching!

I'd choose the orange first so you don't have to think about ripping! Hope it was a productive day - sounds like it definitely will be! ~Jeanne

So glad your up for a slower week, we need them once in a while. Tom has been sick since Saturday morning. A bit better today but not 100 percent yet. I sure hope I don't get that bug. You are making me miss my TATW. Just love the blocks you are doing for RSC15

You make me tired with how busy you are! Do you even sleep? ;-) Hope you have a slower week this week.
