Get Up! It’s Quiltathon Sunday

Wake up spleepyheads!  There’s quilting or shopping or cooking . . a lot to be done today!

Mother Nature and I have this little game we play.  She kicks my butt during the summer but in the Fall and Winter, I have the upper hand.  (Not really . . but I like to feel that way.)  I figured that if I get out of bed and get downstairs to sew before the sun comes up, then I’ve won.  If I wake up and the sun’s already up, then Mother Nature has beat me at my own game.

This mornng, I won!  There are too many darned houses and satellite dishes interfering with my picture taking though.  I wish I lived on a farm and couldn’t see another house!  You know what’s funny about taking sunrise and sunset pictures?  No matter how good or bad I think the pictures are, any time I take sunrise or sunset pictures, they turn out so pretty.  Guess Mother Nature wasn’t too angry with me about losing at our little game this morning! 🙂

I’m going to sew but I hear Vince awake upstairs and before long, he’ll be calling for breakfast.  And, at some point, I have to get the cooking done for next week but it’s an easy week.  So . . I’ll be sewing if you need me!

    I’m working on some household sewing. Window toppers. I showed the fabric on an entry a couple of days ago. A nice deep cranberry red with flowers and leaves in a sage green. Also some small finishes for wall hangings and UGH…hems on some new pants for the man of the house. I hate making hems.
    Hope everyone is having a nice Quiltathon.

    Sunrises are so beautiful – I will try to catch a shot here tomorrow! Yesterday and today I made 17 more blocks for my big print roses quilt, fixed a pair of pants for SB, made 2 loaves of whole wheat sourdough, 2 loaves of white sourdough and meatloaf. Had a visit with my neighbor today and took SB for a big walk yesterday.
