Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Sunday 7 July 2013

A slow relaxing Sunday

Today has been a fabulous day. It started with a wonderful sleep in, although that seems to be something I'm always doing. LOL! Early mornings aren't my favourite thing in the world. Anyway, like I said, a lovely sleep in, and a couple of leisurely cups of coffee, accompanied by facebook and blog reading. Then I decided to make myself a list of things I wanted to get done today. I wanted to bake some bread.
And here it is, a loaf of white bread and a loaf of 12 grain bread. After all, we have all that jam from last week. And there is nothing better with home made jam than home made bread. Each of those loaves are going to be cut in half, since they will go mouldy before Scott and I can eat all of it. The other half of each will go to Matt and Becca.
I wanted to spend some time sitting outside doing some stitching. Once the rain stopped, I was able to go outside and enjoy the warm air and the sounds of the birds, and stitch up this Sunbonnet Baby for my Grandmother's Choice block of the week project. It has been so long since I've done any hand stitching like this. I find I'm missing it. I think I just might have to did out my applique stuff and get back at it.

 I also put on that list that I wanted to do this week's block for Grandmother's Choice, but I haven't started that, just yet.
Then, I got to spend about 20 minutes with Avery on Skype. What a lovely little boy he is. They are at the beginning stages of potty training. Ah yes, there are definitely bonuses to being Grammy, and not having to do the potty training thing is definitely one of them. However, if they could be closer, I'd willingly pitch in with the potty training. But, even without them being here, I love being able to talk to him like that every week, and see him. And they are coming down for a visit in a couple of weeks, which will be so much fun.
Anyway, back to that list, I put on that list that I want to start the next blocks for Meteor Shower as well today. I'm going to do that as soon as I'm finished here. The other thing I need to do is my Stash Report. No change in it, at all. But I suspect that big order will be arriving sometime this week, so I'd better get some more cutting done, to balance off the incoming numbers.

Used this week:                                  0 yards
Used this year:                                  75.4 yards
Added this week:                                 0 yards
Added this year:                             131.25 yards
Balance:                                           55.85 more yards in than out.

I'm linking up to Judy's Stash Report and, for the first time in a long time, Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching


  1. So awesome to relax with hand stitching...
    and such a cute Sunbonnet Sue!
    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Hand stitching is amazingly relaxing. Your Sunbonnet Sue is very sweet! Had to laugh at the sleep-in. That's my favorite way to start a morning.:)


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.
