Friday - a busy day. I had lunch with Ms. Emily at school - a little late for her special birthday lunch. Then the afternoon was a drum initial lesson for 15 minutes - which she loved! Then it was off to..... her one request for her birthday - ride a horse! I found a groupon with another Mom's help for 5 private lessons for 30 minutes each.... for around $70! Nice. Emily absolutely loved it.

Saturday I helped out at a girl scout recruitment booth at a festival. It was a bust - a wee bit high price to get in but we had a nice shady spot under a tree and it was bearable until mid afternoon. I got a few patches hand sewn onto Emily's brownie vest and we got the rest of our year planned. Seems the kids were in the pool while I was away as it was around 87 degrees outside.
Today - looks like a rainy afternoon as the cold front goes through Florida.... so I'm off to take my walk and then will find my way to the sewing room and work on the graduation quilt parts. This afternoon or evening I expect to add some more badges onto Emily's vest.... and add more stitches into the pink dresden plate. Three blades to go then I can start the cross hatching. Just brown, dark blue and maroon to go on these!
Linking up with the other Slow Sunday Stitchers. Remember to take some time to do something for you today! A sunset photo from a walk a couple of nights ago.
