Slow Sunday..... or not!

 I have been doing a little hand work this week but not much. I added a few of the granny squares to the pile and I decided to lay them out and see how they look. Still not sure how they will be put together, but it is coming along. Peanut likes to chew yarn, so it has been much easier leaving things out in the living room while working on them since he refuses to go out there now with the dog. I should have laid these out there instead of in my sewing room where he likes to hang out. 

Not much progress has been made on quilting the Bear Paw, but I am hopeful that will change this week. I need to trace the feathered circle in the other big open space today, so it is ready to stitch next.

I learned that having it in the hoop with animals, it helps to pin the backing over to the top so the batting does not get 'played with'. Linking up with the Slow Sunday Stitchers.

I am heading off soon to go help set up and work a Harry Potter event for girl scouts this afternoon. One kid is headed to Grandma's and the other will be shuttled by her Dad over to her friends house this afternoon to work on a study guide for a couple of hours. They just got back from her turn to feed the chapter animals and exercise them at the school. There is a chapter pig - Tootsie and a chapter lamb - Stetson. The chapter cow that she will be showing with another schoolmate will be arriving soon. She was born last Christmas and comes with the name Noel but the girls might change it.

I love how you're laying out your Granny squares! They match the colors in the bear paw quilt, too! Have a good Sunday - maybe there'll even be some stitching time.

blue, blue and more blue - why do we all seem to have so much blue in our baskets?
