Thankful Weekend

I am thankful that my daughter had a wonderful Thanksgiving visiting her Gamma in California. This is them at dinner before they went and saw the Broadway show, Wicked. She also got to show off her driving skills, lay on the beach, go shopping, get a massage, and so much more. She was completely spoiled, but she deserves it!
I am also thankful my dad is on the mend after having an allergic reaction to his face peeling medication. He broke out in terrible hives and needed serious medication right after we attended the father-daughter dance a couple of weeks ago.  Now he can help my mom recover and get back to sewing with me!
I got my country colored Little Letters blocks done on Saturday
and the filler blocks to finish it up.
 For Slow Sunday Stitching, I finished up this block this morning.
 It is part of my Journey of a Quilter BOM.
 Football was really exciting today, so I managed to start and nearly finish this block while watching all the games. 
 Here are the adorable fabrics and embroidery up close.
I have a few more flowers to add before it is done, but I think I will finish it this evening and start on one more block for this quilt. I am thankful to get inspired by all the amazing handwork over at Slow Sunday Stitching


  1. I love the colours you are using in your quilt! I often
    sit and stitch while watching tv too.
