Sunday Sundry - Vol. 33

Happy Mother's Day!

Oh mama, did I get a lot done yesterday, and much of it before noon.  Norm was working, the house was quiet, and I just kept moving...floors vacuumed and mopped, surfaces dusted, laundry folded and put away, etc.  I even baked a gluten free carrot cake from scratch.

I also finished the borders on the black and white quilt top.

The backing fabric arrived on Friday, this black and white paisley.  I think it will do nicely.

Also got the veggie cross stitch wall hanging basted. 

I know, right?  Wonder of wonders.  I hope you were sitting down for that one.

It was quite the productive day, I'm telling you.  I know some of you do all that and much more every single day, and all I can say is, God bless you!  Also, where do you get your energy?

Today I am going to kick back a bit.  After a trip to the cemetery to plant some flowers, I am going to a program this afternoon where my father is a guest speaker for the local Bird Festival going on this weekend.  Later on, my daughter is going to drop by for a visit, which I'm looking forward to.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Busy girl! The paisley fabric is a perfect choice. How can paisley go wrong?

Have a wonderful day and happy Mother's Day!

Wow! Good job: on the housework, the quilting and the cross-stitch project. I certainly don't get a lot done each day. I think I got more done when the children were babies. How does that work? Crazy.

Happy M-day to you!!

I LOVE that black and white paisley backing fabric!

Cool about getting the veggie wall-hanging basted.

Feels good to be so productive, doesn't it?

Happy Mother's Day!

Ywp the black and whit e quilt is looking mighty fine...and the paisley is rocking the back. She's going to be a true beauty.

And the vegie wall hlanging looks good. That's one step closer to done.

Did you take "busy" pills or something? It made me tired reading about all that activity!

Hope the rest of your Mother's Day is fantastic.

Good golly, P., you make me feel like such a slacker!! You had a very productive day, and I love that black and white quilt!!

I was really bummed about the Heath background fabric not working out, but I love the paisleys just as much. That black & white quilt makes me want to get my butt in gear and clear the board so I can start a few new projects.

Those daffodils are gorgeous!

And good on you for getting so much done.

Love the black and white quilt (what I could see) and the backing is beautiful.
