Another weekend has come and gone … it seems like yesterday was Friday!
Friday morning found me filing our state income tax return; I had filed the federal return earlier in the week. I’m glad that’s all done and over with. My afternoon was spent in the sewing room, putting together the pieced 9 patch blocks for my Irish chain quilt. I watched T#2, T#3, and T#4 Friday evening while Mama and Daddy treated T#1 to a surprise early birthday present … Star Wars 3D at the movie theater. He was still on cloud nine when they got home after the movie. While I would have loved to have seen his face when they walked into the theater, I was glad that I could be a part of it by watching the littles so they could go.
Saturday was a bitterly cold day, a perfect day to stay home. I spent a good chunk of the day in the sewing room … those 9 patch blocks (scroll down to the bottom of that post) are coming together. It didn’t take long, though, before I ran out of the strips that I needed (because I had sewn half as many as I needed … and twice as many of the other set). I spent my evening ripping apart the blocks while watching the hockey game.
Sunday morning was spent at church. I got drafted to help out in the toddler nursery (they had 21 kiddos in there!). I spent the afternoon sewing together the block parts that I had to rip out … got those all done, and now I need to cut a few more strips of the blue and sew together the sub-cut sets to finish up the 9 patches. The Blues played again yesterday, so I spent the evening watching the game while working on the puzzle with DH.
My weekend may not have been very glamorous, but it was a good one in my book. My Monday looks to be pretty close to perfect … I’ll have T#4 this morning and most of the afternoon, and we’ve got 2-4” of snow in our forecast (and I’m hoping for the higher end of that range!).
