Slow Sunday.....

I sure hope it is! Yesterday wore me out just a bit, but more on that later in this post!

I should work on the baby hearts which has not been touched... but will probably work on the green tumblers. I have 5 tumblers left to add to the last row, then just need to hand sew the bottom half of the quilt together. 5 long rows to sew by hand and it will be a top! It has been a fun hand piecing project. Now to find the seam ripper and take apart that green print and green.. which is not correct! Must make 1 more tumbler as well, either I counted wrong or one ran away never to be heard from again!

I have visited the links, however I am unable to leave comments on blogs where the only option is google for some reason. Sorry. The ones with the name and url option - I am able to comment on once I fill that in. I'm not sure what changed in the last month or two but I found out that my comments I though I was leaving.... were not actually posting for some strange reason. 

Now, why I really need the rest today!

Saturday started with a tea party with Emily from 11-1....put on by a girl scout troop trying to earn money to go to Georgia - Juliette Gordon Lowes birthplace. They did an awesome job as their first event they put on - some 12,13 and 14 year olds with their leaders. We had 3 from my troop attend and 3 from my co-leaders daisy troop.... that pretty much has been meeting with my troop (a few younger sisters and a couple of new girls).

A few people there mentioned a Fall festival later that day.... Emily wanted to go and I asked Aidan... who said sure! Very unlike him to change plans and do something on the spur of the moment. Dad of course, opted to stay home in peace and quiet. So... I took them to Brick City Adventure Park  - a local playground/park across town with a track that had tables set up all around with a little game (lots of pallets used to do toss games) and then you get a candy. Russell Stovers donated 1800 pounds of candy!

The kids had fun.... despite it being the upper 80's yesterday. Lets just say we enjoyed the 1/4 of the track that was in the shady area! We did about 3/4 of the way around and then decided we were done. Emily wanted her face painted... so we stood in line for that. She got a cat... and Aidan got the sky with a sun.

We hit a Hardees after for dinner (Dad had already had dinner as it was after 6). Aidan was waiting to order something and an older gent put his hand on his shoulder and asked him 'Are you ok?, you're looking a little blue!'. All the people up there burst out laughing!

I need to pick up the house..... I admit, it probably has not been vacuumed since before I went on my business trip to Vermont. I'll spend an hour or two taming the house while Greg takes the kids to his Moms .(must remember the next house needs to be smaller... or I need a maid!). Then some relaxing sewing!

The fall festival sounds like fun, but that is hot! A maid would be nice, because I would much rather sew - hope you get some stitching time today!

Hope Sunday brought you some slow stitching time... I started prepping my EPP rooster project and otherwise had nothing to share at Kathy's.. or could share on my blog as my most exciting project is going out in the mail today... a bag for a great friend of mine in Fla who IS a little blue at the moment. I was happy to see your kids painted faces and it sounds like saturday was lots of fun and catching up on lost out time... hope all is well otherwise with yall and Michael didn't cause any rebounding issues for your area.
