Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Slow Saturday and Sunday stitching

We had an unexpected and very pleasant trip to see our grandson Avery yesterday. It involved 3 1/2 hours in the car to get there and 3 hours in the car to get back home again. But it was well worth it. And what does a person who is sitting in a car, obviously not the one doing the driving, do but occupy the time with stitching. This resulted in three out of four of the last of Leo’s Mane’s border being stitched to the main body of the quilt. One more to go and it is finished. WOOHOO!!

The light wan’t very good for taking the picture, but you get the idea.
But the bigger WOOHOO yesterday was the opportunity to see our grandson Avery.
While we were up visiting Avery, we decided to have a picnic and have some fun flying kites. We didn’t quite take into account that the precipitation that fell here last week as rain and freezing rain fell as snow where he lives. So we had a picnic in the snow. We got some interesting looks from passers by who must have thought we were slightly out of our minds. We also flew kites through the snow. The kite flying wasn’t too terribly successful as there wasn’t a lot of wind. But that was probably just as well since more wind would have made the picnic and being outside too cold. We had fun anyway. And then we went and found a leftover mini mountain of snow ploughed up from a parking lot. The boys had a lot of fun with that. It was a fabulous day!!
Today is going to be much more peaceful, with some reading, going to Church and some stitching.
Then tomorrow, Charlene and I are driving to Norwich where we will be doing a workshop with the Quaker Quilt Guild, called English Paper Piecing - More Than Just Hexagons. That will be lots of fun, and I hope to have pictures. However, I have been known to get so involved in the fun of workshops that taking pictures gets totally forgotten, so I make no promises on that one (grin).
I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching before getting the rest of this day started.

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
