Quilting in Calmness on a Slow Stitching Sunday :)

Yesterday was a heck of a day for me and my house... so many ups and downs in life in general in one day I was happy to call it a day and head to bed last night...

Today I was still unsettled when I awoke so I started stitching...
I quilted in calmness :)  The peaceful morning sounds of birds and bubblers worked there magic as I quilted and calmness overtook me!  Yippee :)

Today I now have some great progress to share with you..
only 2 blocks and a feather left until I can bind and finish off the last of the quilting on this wonderful quilt for my honey we still only call THE MAN quilt !  ha :)

So today my focus is on this block I just marked...
and at least half of that feather too :)

I am not setting a goal for this as I have still lots of stuff going on otherwise... and I need this quilting to be my therapist of sorts for now..

One good thing that did happen yesterday is we got a recliner off the local Craigslist for my honey... when I called on it she said it was olive green... when I told her I wasn't interested in that color but thanks... she said let me send you a pic and if you like it have it for FREE!  Yipee :)
See... it is oatmeal not olive green! lol

So that is all I have to offer and am linking this post to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching Linky..

Don't forget... more details by weeks end but I will be hosting a linky the last weekend of the month to set and show off goals met!  Make some goals this week so you will have a post to link up soon on my linky party !!!!  Prizes are planned for those that link too :)


  1. how weird she said it was olive green - that doesn't look olive green - so neat to get a chair for free. Hope whatever is bothering you gets over fast!!

  2. Glad the stitching is helping to calm your worries. I find sewing is my stress relief - after some time in the sewing room the yelling stops and I am able to deal with things much calmer =). That is why I try to do some quilting of some sort every day - machine stitching, hand sewing, applique or quilting. Makes for a much nicer me (or so I have been told)

  3. Your getting close to finishing that man quilt. He will be cozy in that chair with his quilt when it is cool for sure.

  4. So sorry you had a yucky day Saturday. Mine wasn't to good either but scoring that comfy recliner and making progress on the man quilt were definately good things. :)

  5. Sure hope whatever is plaguing you is resolved quickly ... and for your good.


Thanks for taking time to comment. Have a blessed day!
