Monday, Monday!

Happy Monday after Mother's Day!  Are you still flying high or did you fall back into the reality of being a full time maid :) lol

This bloom opened just this morning about 9 am and I was delighted to see some clouded sunlight coming in the sunroof of the living room and shining so nicely on these lilys :)  There are several of them in the arrangement... and not all of them are open yet! ... I arranged and played with them after this pic to get them organized for peeks throughout the day :)

I have been dutifully working on THE MAN quilt... and happy to report I have finished over half of this block...
And as you can see I am almost 2/3 done with the block and feather combo... my friend asked me if I could see the end of this quilt yet.. my response was that I can see the light to binding... as that will be next up after I finish the 3 other blocks in this center section of the quilt.

More quilting to do after the binding though... but that should go faster for me :)  Mostly straight line stuff.. not intricate swirls and swirly feathers ! lol

My honey just finished rehabbing this machine... he fashioned the cabinet himself.. it is all wood and for sale here on eBay if you are interested in sewing vintage and want a cherry of a machine!

I call it Firecracker.. because it is tan and blue with a reddish case!  And I am a 4th of July baby so this one is near and dear to me... :)  My daughter named it String Bean! lol  I don't know why at all :)

Here is a self portrait my daughter made me along with a darling note in her beautiful cursive handwriting for Mother's Day :)
She has a knit cap on in the picture :)
I love this pencil drawing so much!

And here is a brownie with coconut creme icing on it..
Yummy... made by my son Mike for me!

Hope you enjoyed this post!  Now on to goal setting..

My goal is to finish this block by the end of the day and send you all a report tomorrow! :)
Do you have a goal for the week.. or the day... or the month even?? 

Would you play in a linky that you post goals and show progress in a special post once a month??  Just wondering!

Have a blessed day!

  2. Linky goals.... Hmmm. That would be a deadline so maybe I could get something finished! Great idea.
