A Lazy Summer Day- Sunday Rambings


Well hello there , sweet peas!  Come on in and let's  chat for a bit.  

                        

Grab yourself slice of fruit pizza. This is my oldest daughter's favorite dessert. She is adamant that it is a must at any family gathering. Lol. 

                             

It has been a slow lazy day. Just the  usual Sunday. Visited the family . We always have Sunday dinner together . Dad was raking hay and mom and I sat on the porch watching the hummingbirds . Now I am back home ready to piddle the day away.  

                          

Have you seen the Fall/ Halloween decor in Dollar General and Dollar Tree? I have been watching several videos on Youtube to see what is available this year. I am very tempted to start pulling out fall decor right now. 😀

Last Sunday , I began a new Christmas cross stitch which is a freebie from Heidi_studio on Instagram .

 It is called Candy Canes. Heidi designed several prim ornaments in 2009  and is so generously sharing them on Instagram. 

 For Merry Monday, I finished Noel from dear Heidi . So today I will stitch another of her sweet designs in her series. Thank you so much, Heidi. 



I have picked Blackbird Designs " 1861 Antique Sampler" back up. 

I just stitch on it for a few minutes each night. Slowly I am making progress. 

I finished appliqueing my bee skep quilt so it will go in the hoop today. 

                     

Still working on my Easter Quilt. It is the closest large quilt to be finished. I am getting there. Lol. 

WHAT'S THE PLANS FOR THE WEEK

Well I plan to continue with the Autumn SAL and finish the Halloween stitchery , "Pumpkins, Spiders, and Sly Black Cats" , that I shared last week- my goals are not too lofty. 

  Thank you so much for the sweet visit and as always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll

If happiness is the goal- and it should be- then adventures should be a priority.

    1. Aah thank you for the sweet visit, Linda. It is very relaxing to be on the porch watching all the critters and chatting with family. More times than not I have a stitching or quilting project in hand too. Have a great week. I know you will be very busy.

  6. Late summer with the sunflowers everywhere and produce ripening in the garden is the perfect lead-in to fall, isn't it? I love seeing your projects, Melisa. Love the bee fabric in the little quilt you're making, too. Enjoy!

  7. I am so tempted to do the Autumn SAL. Love all your newest stitcheries in addition to the WIP. August is perfect for sunflowers and bees. I am loving the cooler mornings and evenings.
