Slow Sunday....

After a whirlwind of a day yesterday, today is all about relaxing and for me that means sewing!

Emily really wanted a birthday party with friends.... so she invited her troop over. A few were able to make it and they had fun playing in the backyard. I have tons of Subway subs leftover.... so lunch and dinner are taken care of today... and tomorrow....! The house is actually clean so nothing to do but sew!

I will be playing with the machine to finish the last round of my log cabin blocks to make them 14.5 inches. Then.... I need to press and determine the setting layout. Always fun to throw the blocks on the floor and see what will happen! I plan to get them sewn into a top today and maybe.... pinned for quilting on Thursday. Bowling is done for the season and we had our banquet at Red Lobster Thursday so I have a full free day during the week while the kids are at school. It is a good once that one is done I need to 'start' the graduation quilt!

I'll need a break or two so will be hand stitching the final sashing to get the rows together on the Hand Pieced Quilt Along. I have them cut out and the stitching line drawn. I did have an oops, when I stitched 2 of the setting triangles they were put on the wrong way! They were picked out and reapplied the correct way on Friday. I hope to have this as a top tonight.... wish me luck. Guess I need one more 33 inch white strip before I can hand stitch this all together! I plan to hand quilt this one.... so hopefully that will be next week's post.

Linking up with the other turtle stitchers at Kathy's Quilts.

I was able to see this on my walk last week. This is the next street over from me - wild turkeys! Much better than the diamond back snake I saw last month on this street. It is right next to the forest.

I haven't been to Red Lobster in years none close by and hubby doesn't care for it when we have been near. Subway sandwiches for day of no cooking sounds great to me. happy birthday to your girl!

In my prior eating years (about 20) I loved Red Lobster! Also the fried Zuccini at TGIF Fridays! The foods that are served now contain so many preservatives, that they are not the foods that were served in the 1990's. Have a great day and relax - I am sure this week will be busy also! Hugs

Love the wild turkeys! They must be everywhere! Our son who lives in Kansas said he saw some this week when he was at the golf course covering a tournament tor his newspaper. Your hand-pieced blocks are going together so nicely - I love that layout!
