Sunday, Sunday

 I was hoping to have 2 bindings to be stitching down today.....and I will eventually. I am waiting on someone to press the second binding so I can attach it. 

I managed to add some simple squiggle line quilting on the stars and nine quilt on Thursday. I added the binding on yesterday. This is a little 36x38 size.

Yesterday I simple quilted the 16 patch blocks and made the binding...just waiting on someone to press it. I went ahead and did the first one but figured I'd get issues if I did both of them. I'll be hand stitching them down today. This one finishes at 32x 40. Both will be sent off to a charity for Hands2Help as baby quilts.

A little progress on the little basket quilting. I pulled out the stencil to mark the middle squares.... just not sure what will end up there yet. It should be done for the Table Scrap link up next weekend.

We have been getting lots of rain in some rain storms the last few days. The pool got to about an inch below the top rim so that got drained out yesterday a bit. We are scheduled for another 4-5 inches of rain for the next couple of days. Thinking we might need to build a boat soon!

The kids and I were up late last night. I had found a brownie recipe on Tasty 101 (Hulu or Youtube) that looked oh so yummy and uses 6 eggs. Yes, always trying to find recipes to use up eggs! They are little 6 minute bits on how to make things so we were watching different ones. We might have to try the pasta one as well! I went out to get ingredients last night for the brownies and plan to make it today.

Emily got her birthday shopping trip in with Grandma after horses yesterday so both get to head to Grandma and Papa Andy's house today for the day. I'm probably on pick up duty. I had picked up bacon and popped it in the freezer when I got home but asked Aidan to pull it for the fridge late last night (he was in the kitchen!) and he asked for the sausage you cut instead and Emily said - Dad's sausage gravy!. We had some so that got put in the fridge instead. I'm just waiting for them to all wake up so they can make my breakfast! I do love Sundays.

Linking up with Kathy and the other Slow Stitchers.

it is good to use up the eggs you get - certainly don't want them to go to waste. It sounds like you have been having a lot of rain - we have gotten some but not excessive -- now if the weather would just warm back up

Love how your two quilts are looking! They're both so happy - that's my favorite thing about scrappy, rainbow quilts. The brownies sound yummy! Enjoy your Sunday, Deb!


We have not gotten any more rain since those couple three storms last Sunday--but they do say rain Mon and Tues--so we will see--my only plans for those 2 days are sewing--at least I hope that is what's on the list!!!
Wished I had someone to cook me pancakes and an egg!!!
luv, di
