I managed to get the orange section quilted last week on the trip quilt and started in on the teal. I'll plan to finish the teal section today and work on the purple this week. That will get me to a roll on the frame and just a couple of blocks left of each color to stitch before starting on the last 3 colors!
I'll also stitch the borderie perse on the 12th block of the Ella Maria Deacon Quilt (Yup, behind again!) and then will prep a couple of the 4th set of blocks for hand work in the car line... the kids FINALLY go back to school on Tuesday! It has been a long break and we are ALL ready for the normal routine to hit again.
Some crochet or knitting might happen as well depending on how I feel. I should pop onto work for a short time and just prep for an install tomorrow as well but that will be quick.
Linking up with Kathy and the Slow Sunday Stitchers. I did finish off my Happy Little Things wall hanging on New Years day - I machine stitched it and hand stitched the binding for my first finish of the year. This finished off at 32 inches.
The reason I need the recovery day....... I had my troop do a sleep in at the church we meet at Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon. The junior girls earned their simple meals badge and 2 parts of a journey. My brownies finished a journey and did another one. They also had lots of play time and bonded and made some great memories. One went home sick around 5AM..... so hopefully no one else comes down with a stomach bug. Me.... I am feeling a sinus headache coming on so Advil and lots of liquids for me today since I know I did not drink enough water the last 2 days. Friday morning kinda threw everything off - I was trying to work and when I came out to feed the guinea pigs while getting myself some water.... only one moved! Sadly, Flower the guinea pig (Emily's) passed on. Looking back - he was drinking a lot of water the last week so something must have failed. He was just a few months shy of 4 years old. Jimmy Jr (Aidan's guinea pig) will needs lots more petting and attention now as they are a sociable animal. Good thing he doesn't mind being picked up and cuddled.
