Slow Sunday

My Sunday was far from slow, seems like lately my weekends are all about catching up on things around the house seeing how I am gone a lot during the week.

I have been working hard trying to finishing quilting on Blue Rocky Road

but need to put that aside again because I want to get the Scandinavian  Christmas wallhanging completed so I can display it this Christmas.

Pinned basted the sandwich.

Figure since I won't be handle this for too long that pinned basting will be good enough.

Haven't used this PVC hoop before and it's really not bad.
Working out so far

I'm doing a general outline of the large appliqued right now but will do snowflakes in the open spaces and then something around the cross stitch frame.

I will quilt on this like I had been, in the morning but also put in some time in the evening too.

Time Flys

A lot has happened these past few weeks.
My mom has been in and out of the hospital again and then it's follow up visits with the specialists. She is doing good but CHF (congestive heart failure) is a day by day challenge. For some people it is hard to change their diet and other habits that are needed when you have CHF . My mom is one of those people and for that reason is why she is dealing with it now.
Makes me think about my own stubborn habits and vow to myself to do better so I can prevent future health issues.

My youngest daughter was also home for two weeks and I can say with confidence I have a new quilter in the family.

She picked out the fabric (with help from Pete) and pattern, cut the pieces and almost completed sewing the top together.

Looking great.

Myself have done very little sewing again. 

Was able to put half of the borders on the Retro Air-Ship Propeller. Which meant I did not make my goal for last month. 

Did decided thou what I wanted to add to the corners.

My YD has called dibs on this one and loves the my choice so its now just a matter of prepping. This will be a great one to take to mom and doctor visits.

Have been making great progress on the CAL.
Almost on part 5 and it's looking good plus using up my stash.
