Slow Stitching Sunday

This was my hand work on the first plane yesterday morning. I plan to finish this one off with the purple flower this evening in the hotel. I am back basting this so it is all set to go. My second block of the 1857 Quilt.

Today I had a nice brunch at my brothers house and all my siblings and parents were there. Thank goodness I feel lots better today than yesterday after traveling. All I was good for was napping yesterday afternoon and evening so I missed the concert my niece was playing in. The three nights of little sleep with a sick child and traveling caught up with me. Today we'll hit Kohls looking for a game to help my Dad with his concentration and then might hit a sugar house for some sugar on snow with a sour pickle and donut. Yummy (I'm more into the pickle and donut than the sugar on snow). I also need to grab some syrup to take home with me.... my normal delivery is not happening this year as Mom and Dad will stay home in Vermont instead of coming to Florida this month.
Time to get off here and head out to see some lovely scenery here in Vermont.
Linking up with the Slow Stitchers at Kathy's Quilts.

Your purple flower is lovely. I love donuts, but with pickles, I'm not sure about. :O

That sounds like a dreadful combination... sugar, snow, sour pickle and donut?!?!
Enjoy your adventure!

Sugar on snow, pickle, and a donut does not appeal to my taste buds but the syrup would.
