Slow Sunday Stitching

It has been another whirlwind week for me.  I did get my parts for the Handi Quilter Moxie on Friday, but unfortunately they sent the wrong sized cord.  So I will have to talk to them again on Monday.  

Grandson Keaton was promised when his brother went to college, he would be able to get a pug.  They already had 3 dogs, but he was promised a pug when he was the only child at home.  They have been looking for a pug, and he finally got a pug puppy this week named Rigby.  He is so cute, and I got to meet my new grand-puppy this week.




Wednesday I got together with with 7 single ladies from the quilt guild for lunch, all widows.  We had a really nice lunch at an Italian restaurant I had never heard of.  Unfortunately I made a poor choice.  I got a Caesar salad, which was fine, but then I got an Italian sandwich.  I get migraines, and tend to stay away from meat with nitrites in them, as they cause migraines.  Well I had a migraine all afternoon after that.

That night I had recovered and daughter Kristen, her husband Jeff, and Keaton took me to a Mexican dinner, with ice cream afterwards.  

Friday morning I had a meeting with a mini group from the quilt guild and was able to get some of my Ella Maria Deacon blocks done.  



For my Slow Sunday Stitching this week, I will be working on this block and prepping some more blocks.  


I will be linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  I will be heading over and checking out what everyone has been up to.

The other thing I have been working on this week is my project for the No Ring November Mug Rug Blog Hop which starts on Monday, and also happens to be my day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pugs seem to be popular, he'll be a good companion for your grandson. Your Elle blocks look so nice, happy stitching!

Cute puppy! Karrin it is so wonderful to see you grabbing onto life and going forward with your memories. I am sorry that they screwed up the cord - but there is a lot of that nowadays. You have a wonderful week. I am sure that you are happy to be finished with all rearranging and remodeling. Hugs

That puppy is adorable! Your EMD blocks are so pretty. It sounds nice that your guild has those small groups that get together at different times. I'm looking forward to the mug rug blog hop this week! I tried to join in, but never heard back from the gal who is coordinating it. I'll still get fun ideas from the rest of you, though!

Rugby is a cutie! Your grandson looks very pleased! Nice blocks. You must be getting close to having enough blocks for this project.

Seeing your EMD blocks reminds me I have a few of those to finish up and make into a quilt. Lovely photo with you and your new grand puppy! Enjoy your week.

That pug puppy is so very cute! Grand-dogs are so wonderful, aren't they? Karinn, your blocks are so pretty! Wow! I'm so glad you were able to enjoy some time with your friends though I'm sorry you had a migraine afterwards. Looking forward to your post tomorrow!
