Slow Sunday Stitching

 Another busy week has flown by.  Tuesday would have been our 46th anniversary.  My girls, son-in-law and 3 grandchildren took me out to dinner that night.  We had an excellent dinner at Carmelita's, a family owned Mexican restaurant we have been going to since we moved here 43 years ago.    

Wednesday was quilt guild, and they had a Quilt's of Valor presentation to 9 individuals which was very touching.  

Then a couple of appointments like getting my teeth cleaned, and a bone density scan.  

I had a surprise package this week from an internet group of quilters I belong to.  They put together this comfort quilt when John passed away.  It is just beautiful.

There were a couple more cute pictures of Rigby this week.  He is at the stage he is teething now, and keeps on chewing on everything, including my arm at one point.  He looks so innocent here.  He's become a little butterball though!  

I did finish a couple of Ella Maria Deacon blocks this week.  I did this one over because it didn't sit flat.  It's a little better this time.   The one on the top is the redo.  

I got these blocks done also.  The bottom one is a broderie perse.

I also finished up this Kathy Schmitz embroidery I had started awhile ago.  

For Slow Sunday Stitching this week, I have two projects to work on, neither of which I have started yet.  One another Ella Maria block, and the other a Kathy Schmitz embroidery.  

I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  Head on over and check out what everyone has been up to.

Thanks for stopping by!

So fun how you have completed blocks to admire and blocks ready to begin a stitching adventure! Enjoy!
That is a gorgeous comfort quilt... each block is the same pattern yet looks a little different!

I'm so glad your family helped you get through your anniversary date, Karrin! And the quilt from your group is so thoughtful, and looks cozy. I love that KS design with the bird in a sweater! I'll have to put that one in my list to stitch, too. Have a great Sunday!

How wonderful you and your beautiful family were able to enjoy each other's company at a special meal, during this difficult time. Your comfort quilt is lovely. Quilting friends are the best, aren't they? As always you have lots of lovely projects on the go. Those Ella blocks are gorgeous and your new stitching looks like they will be fun. Hoping this Thanksgiving will be a lovely one for you and your family, lovely Karrin♡
