Slowing down.....

I plan to spend a relaxing few minutes stitching on my basket quilt tonight. I took this one apart last Sunday and cut out the backing of each of the baskets as I wrote about here on Monday. I finally put the 3 parts together today and began the stitching. So much easier stitching those baskets now with 3 layers instead of 4, I am very glad I decided to start this one over again. Linking up with the Slow Sunday Stitchers.

It has been busy as usual. I took both kids to my cooking club on Friday night - Emily played with her friends (the hosts girls) and Aidan helped cook as there were only a few of us. He made Touchdown Taco Dip - and it was yummy!

This morning -well most of the day really - was spent making sure everything is all set for my last scout meeting until August. We have bridging tomorrow and lots of badges to hand out. Balloons and fixings to make ice cream in a bag after our ceremony were purchased. I'll pick up the pizza's on the way to the meeting tomorrow night. Wish me luck!
