It was a busy Easter weekend since DH took some extra time off but I don't know how much is actually news worthy. We took care of a few errands, some yard work, poured over our to do list and discussed our attack plan for some of the items on it then we both took time to play around with our hobbies. I love to look at the sun through Harold's solar telescope. This picture doesn't do the sun justice as it was blood red this day.
As I mentioned on my last post, I have been working A Mind Independent and Free by CHS. Once I got past that divider, it has been smooth sailing! I am stitching this piece in memory of my dear Aunt Robbie. The saying reminds me so much of her and I think of her each time I pick it up to work on. I am hoping to get this piece finished up this month in time for the framing sale at my LNS. I was able to complete what I call section 2 this weekend. It is getting too big now to photograph the entire piece with good clarity so I will post section progress photos until completed.
When I went to pick up Thankful Wheeler, I had to shop! Forget that stash diet and all the good intentions I had! lol. I picked up the latest Loose Feathers (Winter Wonderland) by BBD and have several charts on order. After I got home, I called my ONS to see if my backordered fabric had come it yet. Nope, it is still taking it's own sweet time so I will wait patiently but I couldn't leave there empty handed either so I ordered Autumn@HRH by CHS. Did I say I would wait patiently on the backordered fabric? My mistake! I am not a patient person. I know I have plenty for now but I have this deep seated fear that it will all vanish if I look away for too long thus I keep my stash stocked up so that doesn't happen!
I realized I was in need of some DMC colors which was a good excuse to also stop by the fabric store for stitching fabrics and while there, I also picked up some other fabrics. Maybe these will give me the incentive I need to set my sewing machine back up and and start on some on some quilt tops!
I also decided to subscribe to Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly. I have wanted to subscribe to this magazine for quite awhile! There is no time like the present!
So much for my long winded post! Thank you again for stopping by! Your visits and comments always make my day! Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart!
