Slow stitching finally got to happen this afternoon. I started in on the orange today.

I see a few things I need to stitch up with some orange thread - the joys of hand piecing (a few years ago - I have learned a lot since then!) and being left on this frame forever with a cat that thinks it is his personal hammock bed! A few stitches to tack it back together in a couple of spots and then more hand quilting tonight I think.
I finally played with the different angles the EZ3 can do. Flat and all the way up were not comfortable. I liked the angle of the second slot from the top. Just right for me.

Yesterday Emily got dropped to camp with our troop. I got to go home and spend the rest of the day with the boy - he had a science experiment to do and needed some Mom boy time without sister. He got his meal request - shrimp lo mien made for dinner. Lots of game time and just hanging out time.
Today I had to pick up the girl while the boy was shuttled to Grandma. I then headed over to visit my father in law with Emily and fed her lunch before coming home. She got a shower (did I mention it was 100% humid yesterday and it rained and the temps were in the upper 80's with no AC at camp?... and this morning they cleaned their cabin and then picked up the trails from any stray wrappers from the trick or treat event they worked yesterday?) and has been relaxing after researching the snake she spotted on the trail this morning. I hear every one's lungs worked great to scare it off!
Emily wants breakfast for dinner - and she and Dad are great at making eggs, hash browns and sausage so I think I'll let them have some time together in the kitchen while I stitch on the frame in the bedroom while watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Linking up with the other slow stitchers over at Kathy's Quilts.

I did smile at the thought of your cat using your quilt for a hammock. I love the different shades of fabric in this quilt; they look fabulous together. Hope you enjoyed a little hand quilting whilst watching the movie.

Pretty oranges that you're working on today! Hope you had time to make some good progress. How did the Science experiment turn out? It sounded like a good one!

You mean it's not a cat hammock?! I like breakfast for dinner sometimes.

Cat hammock? No, no, bad kitty!!!
