Well many of us have had quite the cold week haven’t we? :) I’ve had kids here a lot between school cancellations and delays.
On Saturday I thought I’d play catch-up with quilting and slow stitching after grocery shopping and errands. I visited with the grandkids in the morning for a wee bit, and planned on starting a batch of tomato sauce and chili and just relaxing later on.
Well, the youngest came over with his laundry and this little guy.
When Koopa arrives I cannot concentrate…for one, I must play with him; he’s so darn cute and irresistable! Two..he and my two dogs start playing and tearing up the house. I send them outside to tear around the yard but when they come back in they are still quite energetic.
The cat finally ventured out. I think that she decided that since he was going to be a regular visitor, she had better show him who was boss. Oh the comedy that I enjoyed before they calmed down a bit and I captured this :
I took Koopa for a walk down to my son’s to play with the kids for awhile and one of my first Slow Sunday Stitching projects that I came home with is to repair this rip in my grandson’s hood. It’s a Baby Gap jacket and he’s only had it for a month or so. I was totally ready to trash Baby Gap for shoddy workmanship until I saw ALEX written with a Sharpie on the tag inside. So it was a hand me down or something…who knows how long it’s been around :)
At any rate I am hand-sewing the repair.
Next up, last week I posted about working on these little tea party sets. I gave one to the grand-girls and they loved it and the next day there was a picture of my son drinking tea after work on Facebook…pinky extended, of course.
I just have to finish the binding on one more little mat and then it goes off to a friend’s daughter…as soon as I let her know :) She’d liked the set that I was working on last week and I thought that the second set could go to her little one but I wanted to wait until I hadn’t messed anything up too badly : ) I do that on a regular basis :)
Last, I have not touched this quilt for a good five days…it needs some attention. And I need the relaxation :)
And as a PS to this post : the grandsons demanded snack mats of their own after they saw the girl’s tea set. They loved the pillowcase fabric from Christmas and requested that if I had any more of that, it was what they wanted. Whew…I did. :)
