RSC Saturday....

It's not yellow but it is progress on an old RSC project of my Dresden plates. I should finish off the pink one later today. I just have to add some peels into two more sides of the surrounding squares. I'll have to search for the batting and prep the next one soon... brown, maroon and dark blue are left before I'll put all 12 together.


I tilled the half of the garden not planted and around some of the planted parts and I was done for the day. It will be a day relaxing in the recliner watching tv and stitching I think. Low energy with a touch of whatever the boys had... or maybe I just need a day to relax? At least the boy seems to be recovered and is busy with Emily entertaining themselves for now. I think they made a list and are working on the 'relaxing' for a bit. They found a book of board games I've had forever and played a few before lunch. It seems it got too hot to be outside for them after they weeded a little and watered everything for me. I hear they want pool time this afternoon - just waiting for the sun to get the chlorine level down a bit after shocking it last night. I hear the pool temp is up to 80 degrees!

Linking up with the RSC Challenge.

My little bits of yellow - a future crumb block in yellow. Sewn around the graduation blocks on Thursday.

Yesterday Emily had her second riding lesson. She got to walk out to get her horse to ride for her lesson. She got Cowboy since Belle was in use. 

Serious pose while leading her horse around.

Slow camera missed the huge grin on her face as the horse was off leash and fully in her control!

Hoping you got lots of relaxing in today!
I did think Emily looked a bit somber for a kid on a horse - glad to know that there were smiles that the camera just didn't catch!

Nice quilting progress on the Dresden and funny to hear about it being too hot. 34 degrees here in PA this morning! :)

What a wonderful experience you are giving Em!! Glad you found some time to sew some YELLOW bits, along with all the other stuff you've got going on.
