A Day To Relax....Sort Of...

I started out early this morning. I wanted to sleep in but wasn't so lucky. I sat and worked on the computer for a little bit, played games. Just was lazy to start. I didn't take a shower till it was about 11 am. Felt good to stay in PJ's and robe!

Once I finally got started - I started laundry and then emptied the dishwasher.


While I was slow in getting moving, Patrick was out working in the yard.


I decided to go out on the deck and enjoy the weather. It was so pretty today and around 73 degrees. The wind was blowing and felt good on the deck.


I appliqued the flag to the pole. I took it downstairs when I was done to be with the wings. I'm hoping to get them on the background here pretty soon.


I appliqued the petals on - till I realized I had one petal missing. I remembered seeing it downstairs on the counter. Then I remembered I was passing that around so much that I throw it out. So, I went down digging in my trash can. I Found IT! lol -


Then I added it on to the block. Now I need to pick a color for the center and I'm thinking I will do an orange or something in that direction. I will work on that later.


Then I worked on the embroidery piece I have been working on. I like the roses that I'm doing. The second rose didn't work as well as I wanted it to, but it looks fine. Some I'm going to keep it.


Two down and I believe I have 4 more to go. I'm having fun with this piece. I guess that's hy I want to keep working on it.

I'm going to see Donna tomorrow and help with the quilt for the eagle I just finished. I'm going to talk to her about the blocks I want to do for dad's quilt too. I should take the fabric over to her place to see what we can do with it.

Bowling was tonight. I bowled a 201, 156, 222. I'm getting back up there. I was having trouble in the second games. No worries, I was able to pull it out on the third game. We lost that game, but won 3 out of 4 games.

Life is good....Happy Quilting!

Spending The Day With Mom

It snowed more last night. Soooo, this morning was all white. It was gorgeous! Patrick said to wait till 10 am before going out. I decided...
