at last a quilty day

It's a rainy day-yesterday I declared today would be my guilt free quilty day. I planted 50 daffodil bulbs yesterday-came home from buying them and got them right in. Went by to spend some time with Alice and were invited back for dinner-Oxtail stew. My son makes his own beef stock-it was delicious! I love how we always talk cooking when we eat together. Alice was her usual adorable self..we left her having her after bath bottle-getting ready for her long evening sleep.
This morning I slept in late-and have spent time clearing the sewing table, putting stuff away, helping locate a missing item out in the garage (honey, what is in this tub? honey, help me put this back up on top, honey?) thankfully it was finally located not in a box, but in a bag LOL! I am going to fix the hem on one more tee shirt , then start in on the tee shirt wall hanging. It's laid out on the bed so I can keep track of which piece goes where. Once I have a few stitched together I will take a photo and post. I also need to take a photo of the start of another Cher scrappy style charity quilt-taught my small quilt group Thursday night my approach to grab and stitch-it was a wonderfully fun time stitching with these gals. I am starting to see the end of the overflowing bin of scraps I have been working on all this year to empty. I may accomplish that goal this year after all. So, it's a lovely day ahead for me...what are you up to today??

Glad to hear you are sewing. I did a bit of dyeing and sewing the binding on my Wonky Log Cabin. Not my favorite thing, but it means it's almost done. Yay!

How do you manage to keep ahead of the scrap bin? I swear the scraps reproduce when you aren't looking!
