Slow Sunday....

It's a nice quiet Sunday so far. The kids are playing in the play room keeping entertained. Greg is sleeping in and I am enjoying some peace and quiet.
It has been a long weekend... mostly due to Friday night's drive in campout with Emily. Lack of sleep led to a very lazy Saturday. Lots of games, puzzles and movies as both kids and I were tired. I snuck in some hand work yesterday on my 1857 blocks. Today the house really needs a cleaning which means I get lots of breaks to stitch =) My reward system. The kids are going to Grandma's house with Emily staying for a sleepover.... after Grandpa comes for his visit mid morning.

I've been working on my 1857 quilt blocks and have the first 2 completed and just a little bit left on the third one. I hope to get this one finished off today - turning those 4 little circles and adding the 4 peels to the corners. She released the 11th block this weekend..... so maybe I'll start on the 4th block tonight after I finish off #3?

Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what others are stitching around the world today.

Some pics for Mom - Emily and I got the tent set up Friday night at the Drive in. First time for me and yes, I did add the stakes to the rain shield in front. Good thing - it rained for hours but we stayed dry in there.
We got the tent set up.

Watching Zootopia.

Morning after breakfast.

Ride home - almost asleep but woke up when we got home.

lots of tomato plants... guess I need to prep the garden.

I love those blocks - purple and green are just perfect!

I plan to get back to my veg garden this year after missing the past two years because of family obligations. I wasn't able to get any seeds started so I will have to buy some plants. :((

Looks like you had some fun mother/daughter time!
