Quiet Weekends

This was one of those weekends....no where to go on a deadline (other than soccer pictures), nothing pressing that needed to be done, just the fun stuff - like watch the girls walk the calves.

And what did I do? Spent a lot of time cleaning. 3 rooms cleaned and sorted out - 3 to go (and unfortunately, 2 of the rooms are the messiest rooms in the house- hehe)



I'm about half done with the quilting on this quilt:


I just wasn't getting into it for some reason. And, quilting it with this pattern is a pain-in-the-you-know-what!:



But I'm getting there. I'm not doing the outer border with this pattern - I'll come up with something for it that will go a little quicker!

Hopefully by Wednesday or Thursday night I'll be starting to put the binding on this quilt - I have until September 4th to finish it - so I just might be ahead of the game!

This may sound a bit funny, but I didn't realize that I hadn't listened to music in a while. The song playing on your blog made me notice how much I miss it.

looks like they're doing well with the calves...you've got plenty of time to finish...can't wait to see the whole thing...these glimpses are driving me nuts!

I am amazed at all you accomplish! All the canning, freezing, and sewing, and decorating! What an inspiration!

I love the pics of the calf walking.
Now you've practised on your house do you want to come and clean mine for me. I need to do Gemma's room. Not looking forward to it at all.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

It seems like there are so few quiet weekends lately. I am sure you enjoyed yours. It is so much more rejuvenating than any vacation...just hanging around home and taking in the good life!

Ahhhh...quiet weekends. Don't you just love that? Although you walk around for awhile and wonder 'what am I forgetting to do'??! I think of you everytime I pick tomatoes -- you with your tons of plants, kids, quilting projects, etc -- and I think, 'If Kris can do this, so can I!

Oh, I wish I could sew like you. You wanna come over and teach me? :) My husband's family used to raise cows. Glad you had a nice relaxing weekend.
