Binding time!

Did you think I forgot Slow Sunday Stitching? I had to get my baby heart quilt pinned and quilted so I could machine stitch the binding to the top and hand stitch it to the back tonight.

It was a nice relaxing and lazy day. Greg took the kids to Grandma along with our house guest Buddy the Boxer. He is happy to be home. They had a great time with Grandma as they missed their usual date last weekend while she was up in Ohio. Greg and I had a nice relaxing day - I pinned the quilt and cleaned up the kitchen and did some laundry while he took the kids to Grandma. Then we chatted and decided to go out for lunch at The Crazy Cucumber for burgers. Eating outside was so nice in the cozy chairs. Then we headed home and saw the neighbors outside... so we headed over to chat for a bit. I then decided to get the quilt quilted before the kids arrived home.... and managed to get it trimmed and the binding made. I popped it on quickly after Grandma left. We explored the back yard a bit and then helped Emily with her career day project. I challenged Greg to a game of backgammon (got it figured out Mom and I'm raring to beat you and Dad next weekend). Emily is in the tub and Aidan has challenged me to a game of backgammon. It will be an early bedtime for the kids tonight as they were out late last night.

Saturday was Scout day.... Aidan had the pinewood derby at 3:30 and then his Blue and Gold Banquet at 6 last night. I got there just in time for food... great timing I think! He came in first this year in the Derby and goes onto the city tournament. Much better than last year when the car needed help to cross the finish line. Dad and Aidan did a great job fixing the car from last year to run well. He got his awards and was quite proud of himself last night.
Off to beat my son at backgammon.
Linking up to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday party. Take a look and see what is being worked on.

Great job Aiden. Our two youngest used to do the derby and loved it whether they won or lost.
