    Most of us enjoy quilting so much we wouldn't even consider it work, so Sunday is the perfect day for it. It's our treat to ourselves. Now, I have to admit sometimes when I'm try to figure out a new pattern, there may be some unholy words said. So maybe I'll just have to do only quilting and not piece or calculate on Sundays. Ya think?

    Well here in Spain all the stores are closed. Now my Mum was from the old school where they were brought up not to do any work on Sundays, she told me that her Dad used to make them walk round the table with their bible reading stories (she came from a large Family of 9). She tried to instill this in me, but I enjoy my leisure time, and I quilt.

    I've lived here in Eastern Idaho for quite a number of years now and I've never seen anyone taking stitches out with their noses. It must be more of a Northern Idaho thing. :lol:

    Well, with my husband being a pastor and all, He happens to(work) lead the college group on Sunday nights so it is a perfect time for me to stay home and do some quilting. I get to sew almost every Sunday night, sometime it is the only time during the week when I can.

    an elderly neighbor told me that bc I saw my brother's house burn down, and I was very pregnant, that my baby might have a mark that looked like fire. :shock: She didn't. :D

    I don't know about anyone else but sewing is the best rest I get. I can get into my own zone and since I enjoy the whole process it is resting. A lot more than cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    A wonderful Sunday kind of quilt. Being that every day is gods day, what is a person to do? Quilting is restful!
    I threw that rule out many years ago and am much happier for it!

    Enjoy your quilting whenever you can!
    peace

    EDIT: I do wish there were still 'blue laws' in the USA. It gave time to be at home and enjoy being and doing whatever we wanted.

    Sundays around here are designated "Play date day" with my husband. We spend the day playing video games together.

    Love this blanket ... I'm looking for more stash buster patterns so this is going on my list!
    I look forward to football season because I can spend all day Sunday sewing. Speaking of which - I should get off this computer!
    Happy Sewing Sunday!

    GORGEOUS QUILT - love the colors and the setting! Your border plans should really make this a completed stand-out!

    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
