I love Sundays. And today have been a good Sunday.
"The Man of the Place" took me out for dinner, so that meant no cooking and no cleaning. Yippee
The rest of my afternoon and evening will be devoted to handwork.

I will quilt some and now that I finish having to remake a template
 for the center of the Rocking Road Block. 

 And a Walking Dead marathon.
Yes you read right, these oldies  like The Walking Dead.
Have to have one fault
Anyway enough of that. 
Yesterday didn't do anything other than clean house 
yuck... yuck... 
but it needed to get done.

 Friday tho did start quilting, machine quilting, on a baby quilt. It's one I'm going to give to a new Mommy at church
Not being very adventurous, I'm using my walking foot. Should practice with my quilting foot, doing straight lines but thought just because I'm a beginner and don't think I stress myself out too bad and just use a walking foot

And so far it's doing pretty good. 
Don't think I'll get my 10 hours in before Monday but I'll have a few hours in.
Oh I forgot to tell you yesterday besides cleaning, I had full intentions of doing some gardening. Never got around to gardening. 

But my elderberries came in the mail that I had ordered. I wasn't expecting them till Tuesday. It caught me off guard.  So tomorrow I'll be getting those into the ground.
Along with getting in my root crop. It will be the last good day to plant if going by the moon.

Orange is for root crops

Next year I'll be picking elderberries

  1. Such beautiful work, a real delight to see. I have just started thinking about the garden and have got the seed box out but that is as far as it goes. We are still having hard frosts at night, which I am using as an excuse. Take care.

  2. Where do you find the calendar that shows when it is time to plant root crops etc? I love the feather you are quilting. Did you free hand it or use a template?


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
