Total Relaxed Day

I decided this morning that it was going to be a day of as little housework as possible, just the basic. Also no cooking....
total leftover and clean out the frig day.

It was a cold, blustery day. Sun came out but still didn't make much of a difference.
Stayed inside, lots of piecework, sitting around. Probably too much sitting around but it will warm up and it is going to be a busy week ahead.

On the list for today was to add grey around this diamond


I also dug out the Vintage Garden top that is pretty close to done.

First I put down on the floor to get an idea of how I was going to go about the border.

But the light is bad and really didn't think it would work. 
so I put it up on the design wall.

The outer border will be pieced cuts. This was a BOM from about 10 years ago so I'm working with what I believe it's suppose to be. I do not have a picture of the finish quilt just a photo copy of he pattern or able to get fabric that would match. Work with what I have

added the border fabrics and like how it looks.

Started adding the brown floral scalloped edges.


now it's something I'll work on after I write this.

Then if I do get this finished this evening and want to do something more I think I'll work on the crochet scrappy blanket

So far I have 35" completed and it looks like I will use all the small scrap balls of yarn I have. In fact I might need to dig into some of other stash yarn.

quilting is more fun than housework


  1. I love that scrappy border on your applique quilt. It is going to be stunning when you get it finished wished. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!

  2. Lovely projects you've got on the go there :-)

  3. I love those hexagon diamonds--really pretty. That applique you've almost finished is gorgeous--and a scalloped border will be lovely hugs, Julierose

  4. Love the scalloped edge, on an already stunning creation.

  5. SO many fun choices for hand stitching... love that edging on the BOM

  6. Hope you had a wonderfully relaxing sew day. You've got lots of fun projects in the works and are doing a great job of getting some of those UFOs off your list.
