It is amazing how much of summer vacation so far has been full of hurry up and rush around! All those projects I save up during the school year could easily fill more than one summer vacation. So on Sunday I am trying to remember that it is OK to slow down and enjoy for at least a little bit. I've pulled out my Christmas Poinsettia applique blocks again to keep them moving along in the right direction. I'm only planning a small wall hanging size. surely that could be done before Christmas? We've been settling down in the evenings lately with a Harry Potter marathon. Part of a movie each evening before bed should give me plenty of time to stitch a petal or two along the way.
We've been out and about this morning. The girls wanted to see Maleficent. That was followed up by a quick trip to Joann's to get a few accessories that Anna needed to finish her Music Man costume. Wanting to get good use out of the weekly coupon, I searched out this little fat quarter bundle of light blues and greens. I find that I don't have a lot of light fabrics to use as backgrounds in my sampler blocks. These should fit work nicely I think. They are in the wash now and so I do believe I'll settle in with some applique while I wait. If you are ready for some slowdown on Sunday time, head over to Kathy's Quilts to see what other slowpokes are stitching today.
