Slow Sunday Stitching

I had a not so busy week this week, and can't say I have much to show for my time.  I did do my last two weeks' borders in the SAHRR (Stay at Home Round Robin) hosted by Quilting Gail.  You can find out all about it here.  Each Monday one of the co-hosts gives you a different border to put on your block.  I started out with an orphan block I had lying around.  I didn't get mine done last week because I was working on blog hop project and Kristen's BD gifts.  But I got caught up this week and got two borders on.  Last week was curves, this week's prompt was diamonds.  I'm happy with the way it is looking.  


My daughters have a tradition with their friends.  On their birthday their friends take them out to dinner.  Each of the group put $20 in with the BD card, and they pay for BD girl's dinner.  My girls invited me to go with them this time as it was Kristen's BD.  I have known all of these ladies for years and years, except one of them.  Their children have grown up with my grandchildren.  


My daughter Katie is holding the phone and Kristen is right behind me.  We had a really good dinner, and lots of laughs.  I think we closed the place down.  

One day this week, I assembled care packages for grandchildren Kyleigh and Jaeger who are off at college.  I made Jaeger chocolate cookies, with peanut butter centers, and had gotten him 2 kinds of trail mix and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  Kyleigh is more health conscious and likes my homemade Gingerbread Granola, dried mango slices, pistachios but then some Starburst because she likes those.  Jaeger made sure to ask before he headed back to college if I was going to send him a care package!  

This week I did finish this Ella Maria Deacon block.  I had to rip a couple of pieces out as the last couple of pieces weren't going to match up.  


I have the next one prepped and ready to stitch for Slow Sunday Stitching.  



Also if I get bored, I ordered this kit from Bird Brain Designs.   It will be Redwork.  



I will be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  Head on over and check out what everyone is working on.  My favorite thing to do on Sundays!  

Thanks for stopping by!

A girls night out sounds sew fun! I love what you are working on this week ... esp that red work heart. Your needleturn applique is awesome and your round robin project looks great.... I miss girls nights out for sure though... will be glad when this surgery is behind me and I can move and shake and have fun going out... once covid is less fatal too though for me.
Thanks for sharing today !!!!! Kathi
