A little bit of sewing

Mother's Day Basket I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Mother's Day! I have really enjoyed my day! Last night we visited with Richard's Grandmother. So today, Richard and the boys had promised me a Mother's Day breakfast...but you know how that goes, as a mother I am always the first one up and they were all snoring so loudly, so I fixed breakfast myself. I got some really nice gifts and cards, oh and lots of hugs. We went out to Mom's around 2pm for dinner, my brother and his family were there so we all had a nice time.

I haven't been on the computer alot this weekend because it keeps going off. This is the longest that I have been able to stay on it, usually after about 2 minutes it will go off, so I guess I will be calling the computer repair people tomorrow.

I have done a little bit of sewing. I have been working on Step 4 of the OC. I have about 10 blocks sewn together and 20 more to go. I still need to iron step 2 and 3!!!!


Tomorrow is Quilt Guild and we will be starting a mystery quilt there. We are doing it in two parts. This will be my first quilt that I have made with the guild so I am a little nervous. I don't even know what the fabric will look like. We had the kits made from WV Quilts Store. I'm sure I will have more to tell you on this tomorrow.

Well I did survive the cleaning that mom and I did the other day. I was so tired and I want to thank everyone for listening to me whine!!!!

I think I will spend the evening working on my OC, before I have to pack up my machine and things for Guild. I really need to finish my Mini Swap Quilt, it needs to be mailed out before the end of the month. All I need to do is quilt it and I think I am just going to quilt in the ditch, so that won't take very long since it is only a 20 inch square.

The day is almost over...so this wish is late...but "Happy Mother's Day" anyway. It is a joy ( most of the time) to be a Mother...as I think most Mothers would agree.

Have a fun Monday!

Your blocks look great, and you are way ahead of me! Happy Mother's day!

Sounds like you are having a good day. Our Mother's Day is in March so it's just an ordinary day for me.

love and hugs xxx

I've just finished my half-squares...blocks will be next.

Are you having the computer looked at? How frustrating is that!!

You are going to start another mystery quilt? You are a brave woman!
