Great Sunday morning. Things on the 5 acres have been so nice a quiet. I am working on the next border for My Surprise Quilt. I am hoping to be able to finish it before Tuesday. Our weather was warm and humid, but I walked a mile doing it in 21 minutes. Tonight we get a cool front, heck it may even be in the high 40’s in the morning one day this week. I will still wear my shorts! (OK will let you know if I do!).
I still have not started working on my quilt that I want to hand quilt. Maybe later this week. Life got in my way for the last week!
I have not had time to do a lot of hand work like I thought I would, but I have finished the leaves on this block for Moda Holiday Sew Along (I get the stupid name mixed up all the time so I gave it a new name for today! LOL
Well, I must run now as I am trying to finish up 268 blocks for my next border on My Surprise quilt – of course the next border will be a surprise!
Have a great week! I am consolidating the Hearing Aid place, HEB, and Walmart on Tuesday, that way I will not have to give up 2 days! May as well do it all in one day and really wear myself out!

Better one trip in than two any day! I am excited to see you start that pretty quilt. How big is it? The embroidery is going to make up into something lovely…do you already have a plan in m8 d for the completed Christmas blocks?
The hearing, HEB, and Walmart are all close together Yea!

Yes, you did have quite a week. I think consolidating your runs into one day is a good idea. Meanwhile, I also am hoping for the predicted cool-down and maybe even some moisture. Take care!
Thx Mary. All 3 places are close together That will make it nice with one trip
Always a treat to see your work 🙂
Thx Sharon hope all is well with hubby. Hugs

Beautiful quilts. Hope the hearing aid place gets your problem straightened out.
You and me both! I am so behind in reading my Blogs. ,albeit tomorrow Hugs
Looking forward to seeing the suprise border on your quilt. Hopefully life will quiet down for you soon!
Gosh that quilt is so, so pretty. Glad you are able to make one trip do it all. If I don’t get out my embroidery like yours, I’m not going to finish that project by Christmas. And I love that project!
Well it is supposed to be 35 tomorrow night – do I pick the few remaining green tomatoes or take a chance? Not sure what to do.
Thank you in advance for sharing with To Do Tuesday!
You are making good progress stitching the holiday block! Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!
