I’m so happy to have a three-day weekend. It’s just the best thing. Especially when my Saturdays are always busy, it’s like I’m actually getting a weekend this weekend. I haven’t done a lot of stitching though, which is a shame. But, I’ve been getting some things done around the house. I did get in some good time on my leaves for Simple Things, as you can see. I have to finish with that second, darker green and then the leaves are done. I love what the leaves do to this piece. It’s like with every part I complete of this one, I love it more. Blackbirds are next.
But, you know how sometimes, another project just starts calling your name and you feel like suddenly you need to set aside whatever you’re working on and just go get it? Well, that happened to me yesterday. Eric and I had been working on power cleaning the kitchen yesterday morning. We were talking about some things we’d like to do in there, and I suddenly remembered a piece I’d started for the kitchen. I haven’t worked on it since April of 2008, apparently. But, I pulled it out of the WIP bin and put it on my q-snaps. Last night, while watching Witchblade, I worked on that white block.
And, since I’m sure nobody probably remembers this piece, it’s Cuisine d’Ete by Echevette. I’m stitching it with three colors of DMC on 32ct Lemon Zest by Silkweaver. I love this piece so much, and it will look fantastic in my kitchen with my Lemon Meringue Sampler. So, I’ll probably work a bit more on it tonight.
And I had intended to do some cutting and piecing on the baby quilt, but that hasn’t happened this weekend. Next weekend, perhaps.
I finally got around to posting some more of my Miami photos here, if you’d like to take a look. And you can see some of the amazing food Eric’s been making this weekend here. Mmmm. Last night we had BBQ, cole slaw, and baked beans. So, so good! That’s one of the best things about holiday weekends – being home for his cooking!
I am grateful for time together.
