Sunday Sewing...

 I received an email from a long time reader the other day that really got me thinking.  She said that she always enjoyed reading my blog over the years but that it seemed that in the past year or so that I just "skim" over my day and not give a "rundown" of my day with more details of my family and farm life. it goes!  :)

I was up and at it early Sunday morning.  Richard worked so I got up a little after 4am and started coffee and breakfast while he showered.  I always fix breakfast but we have a long tradition that Sunday mornings are our "gravy and biscuit" breakfast.  LOL!  He is a country boy!  So he had bacon, gravy, biscuits, and fried apples at 4:30am!  :)  

Soon after he left, I did a little sewing before Church.  I chained pieced until the bobbin ran out.  Then I went back to bed for a bit.  :)  These are pieces for my Windmills, Tumblers II, and some 1.5" squares.  
 Also this is an updated photo of my Halloween Table Runner.  I haven't really had a chance to work on it much with all of the canning that I have been doing lately.  I'm going to try my best to have it completed and ready to display before Halloween. 
 After Church the boys and I went to mom's along with my sister, and my brother's family.  It's nice that mom is so close by.  Mom fixed dinner for us all.  

Once I got back home I started slicing up my jalapenos to make a batch of Cowboy Candy.  I ended up with 10 half pint jars. 
 Here is the recipe if anyone is interested.  Cowboy Candy!
 Cleaned up the kitchen and called it a day.  Mom sent home leftovers for Richard's supper so that was nice that I didn't have to cook.  

I'll leave you with a photo of my precious niece.  I got to babysit the other day and I snapped this photo of her sleeping!  Yep, she fell asleep just like this.  :)  She is such a joy!
I'll have more sewing progress to show you tomorrow!

what a good wife you are to get up that early and fix a nice, big breakfast for your hubby. ;-) I am an early riser, but I'm not sure that I would be awake enough to fix such a big breakfast. ha!
