Switching Gears

I spent part of the day with Mom. That didn't stop me from getting in some early morning sewing. I spent about 15 minutes before leaving to prep the final section of backing to be sewn on when I got home.

I was only at Mom's for a few hours. As always, it was a nice visit. Mom is so inspiring. At almost 80 she's still doing so much on her own. My brother, niece and I do what we can to help her. We're all within an hour's drive, so someone is always available.

It's bee a soggy few days and the rains keep coming. It rained so much Thursday afternoon that Rocky didn't hesitate to come in from his afernoon break. He tore through the house trying to get dry.

I stopped at the library on the way home to pick up movies for the weekend. We're a pretty quiet family, so no big plans. That means we'll all do what we enjoy most. . .

me - sewing, stitching, watching movies, prepping meals
Honey Do - putsing in the garage, video games, watching war movies
Newton - video games, more video games, eating

With more rain on the way for the entire weekend, we'll got lots of rest in, too,

I finished - finally - putting the backing on the quilt Thursday evening. It feels like it took forever to do this last section. I learned a lot doing it this way. The biggest lessons were more planning and thinking things through. And, don't work on it when you are tired.

Switching gears means I need to set the quilt aside for a couple of days to get my Growing Up BOM done by deadline.

I spent part of my evening choosing my fabrics.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity and productivity.

Very nice that you're all close to your mum - and good for her! We're finally getting some sun today, almost a shock to my system, lol. We're having a quiet weekend too - no plans except going to my aunt's on Monday for bbq. Had to laugh about not working on your quilt when you're tired - words of wisdom there! I absolutely love that floral fabric you picked out. Gorgeous!

Your weekend sounds perfect to me! We're having some rain, but mostly just clouds ... and warm and humid. Those are pretty fabrics and I look forward to seeing them come to something. I wish my children lived an hour away. LOL So do you like QAYG enough to do more quilts that way?
