The Weekend Wrap-Up
The weekend got a busy start, but that didn’t last too long. Friday morning, DD called me inviting me to join her and the Ts on their shopping excursion. Well, of course, I said yes. One of our stops was Toys R Us in hopes of getting some gift ideas for T#4’s upcoming birthday (she’ll be 6 on the 15th). Of course, as is typical for a soon-to-be-6-year-old, she insisted that she wanted everything she saw. Ha! We also stopped at Hobby Lobby … in the fabric area, we spied novelty fleece fabrics. I let each one of the Ts choose their favorite and purchased enough to make each of them a lap blanket. I also selected the Cardinals fleece to make a lap blanket for DH.
Saturday morning, I watched the younger two Ts while Mama and the older two took their kitty Sammy to the vet. They suspect that Sammy is about 14 years old, and he’s not been acting like himself for the last several days. They were afraid that his time with them might be drawing to a close, but thankfully it’s “just” an abscessed tooth and he’s on a course of antibiotics. I spent Saturday afternoon in my sewing room, turning the edges under to turn the fleece from Hobby Lobby into blankets.
Sunday was a lazy day here at Chez Nana. I spent the afternoon with my needle and thread, quilting my Kiss quilt while watching the Cardinals close out their regular season. I’m now almost halfway done on the 4th edge … the end really is in sight. Hopefully I will have the quilting finished and the quilt bound by the end of the week.
I also got some hexies attached on my Martha Washington’s Flower Garden. And speaking of my MWFG, I forgot to share that I’m a celebrity! Paper Pieces featured my MWFG in their Facebook Show and Tell.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
