    My husband left early this morning for a weekend of deep sea fishing with our son and I have been having a sewing day. I am working on 2 quilts..one has been in progress and the other is a Hawaiian hand applique that I got cut out last night and started working on this morning.

    I watched 4-5 quilting shows that were recorded and waiting for me while I appliqued and then I went to the machine and got some piecing done, more applique, lunch, and sewing most of this afternoon...have my music on and have just gotten my shower at 4:30PM!

    Just wanted to share...Hope your day has been good for you too!

    I know just how you feel! Most of us have those days few and far in between - but I am sure that we make the most of it!! Sometimes it is night time and I am still in my jammies from....well....never got out of them!

    And you can still sewing as late into the night as you want without anyone saying 'are you ever coming to bed'?

    I have been sewing all day too. I got a lap quilt top done for my mother's birthday. Tomorrow I'm going to quilt it and bind it.

    Im envious....my wife is sick...caught whatever bug the grandkids had all week...Son picked the grands up early today so his wouldn't get sick again. I took oldest grandson to school ..visited the farmers market..came home took care of the twin grands for about 5 hours...pick up medicine for another grandson and some things daughter needed and some stuff I needed for zucchini bread to utilize some of the farmers market plenty. Fixed stuff for a few meals during the weekend and put it away in the freezer... then made 3 loaves of zucchini bread and 54 zucchini muffins....to freeze and share with kids...but would rather be sewing....perhaps tomorrow

    Those are the very BEST kind of days!!! I love it & usually have many of those as my DH works away from home quite a bit. Hope you have another wonderful day tomorrow!

    Today, Sat. I went to 2 fabric shops and picked up lunch around 2 and then took a nap. Now I am headed to the Sat night service at church and I will only have 1/2 day tomorrow since Hubby will be home.

    I have almost finished all my OBW pieces and about 1/3 of the Hawaiian block. Not bad for a weekend. Amazing how much one can accomplish when you only have to stop when you want to!!
