Beanie brought Mona and Rick over to visit last night and Sadie couldn’t be happier!
Who cares if Uncle Rick is giving her bunny ears?! LOL!
It was so good to see them, they arrived home on the mountain on Thursday having spent much of the past few months in Ohio caring for Mona’s mom. Our schedules have been so opposite that she’s been home when I’ve been gone, and I’ve been here when she isn’t and we were so happy just to sit and visit and catch up with our goings on.
The plan for this weekend…any guesses?
We are going to SEW! In fact she brought 3 youth sized quilt tops over to show me that she had been busy while away, all three from my crayon box pattern from the free patterns tab!
These blocks are my weekend project!
These Scrappy Mountain Majesties blocks have been DONE for quite a while and other deadlines have pushed them aside. Since Spanish Rose is complete – I get to put together this top, just for me, just for fun, just for the cabin – no deadlines required!
This morning, perfect for porch rocking!
I’m taking this weekend at a very leisurely pace. Monday will be for packing for our trip to Barcelona and the Mediterranean cruise. But for today and tomorrow….there IS no agenda. There is no hurry hurry to meet a deadline. It’s all done. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but I’m not even focusing on that. Just some slow mountain living. Breathe.
Barefoot and listening to birdsong.
Watching the sky brighten as morning unfolds over the Blue Ridge.
Only interrupted by this girl who wanted a hike!
8:30am in August is nearly TOO LATE to want to attempt a 2 1/2 mile hike….hot and muggy, we leashed up anyway and headed through the woods.
Can you see her?
In the middle of the red square!
For those who were with me in Peru and understand of which I speak – it was Hot Hot AMAZON HOT!! It’s going to be a good one to stay in and sew, and I am headed down to do so right now.
Mona will be joining me soon, and the perfect weekend will continue.
However you spend your Saturday, try to take it at “just that much slower” of a pace, and don’t forget to breathe!
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Look for the beauty, it is everywhere!
I love this old and quite plain shoo fly quilt found in Denver this past week. Humble little blocks, a wool blanket as batting and tied with red wool yarn. This quilt kept someone warm through many cold winters. Who made it? Who slept under it? What is the story behind each and every scrap? There is so much love and beauty even in the simplicity of this sweet humble old quilt.
Challenge yourself to find beauty in every day simple things…I’d love to know what you discover in the process.
Happy Saturday, Everyone!
