One of my favorite photos from yesterday.
Beanie and Sadie together are a doggie-friend force to be reckoned with. And you have never seen so much tail wagging and running around in circles in excitement as there were from these two when they got to see each other after months apart.
This happy dog cacopohony was equally echoed by the squeals and hugs and laughter of Beanie’s mom Mona and I as we carried her sewing stuff into the cabin and down to the sewing nook for a Sew Day Saturday we have long been waiting for.
Life has been crazy, and our schedules more so. But we are making up for lost time.
I even got some Mona show & Share!
Her Scrappy Mountain Majesties is BOUND!
This one is a gift for her daughter for Christmas, and it turned out just lovely. She chose this layout and did it all by herself. I am so proud of the quilter she has become! There is no stopping this girl.
At Christmas last year, her step son gifted her some charm packs of fabric, and Mona is turning that gift right around in a quilt for him for THIS Christmas:
Disappearing 4 patch!
A few months back, a gift box came in the mail with Mona’s name on it – a partially sewn quilt with a few blocks done, many units cut, and mostly just production time needed to kick this into something fun. Mona has turned these Playing With Jacks blocks from the Free Patterns tab into a baby quilt:
Super cute in recycled blues and greens!
Her daughter's friend is expecting a boy, so this will be perfect for that occasion. Next up, quilting and binding.
And a Christmas table runner!!
I think we’ve definitely got her hooked!
The Christmas music played all day via Pandora as we started her in on a String-X for the guestroom bed at her new place. I’ve got a bucket of strings I’m happy to have her dive in to.
This happened for me!
And the final borders went on the pumpkin quilt.
Tada! It’s done!
What do you think, Sadie Jane?
Yep. Pretty happy about this one.
Pot Roast ala crock pot cooked all day and it was served and enjoyed by the 4 of us along with mashed potatoes, corn, salad, and garlic bread followed by a holiday tradition: White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye on Netflix topped off with brownies and ice cream for dessert . Perfect ending to the perfect Sew Day Saturday.
Which will repeat this afternoon – Mona is coming back up to sew some more. Let the fun continue!

Today it's gloomy, cloudy and raining outside but love and happiness resides inside and I am grateful for this day! I love this arrangement in color blocks-Ideas are everywhere, aren’t they?
Have a lovely Sunday, everyone – join me back here tomorrow for the next Mystery Monday Link-Up for the En Provence mystery -
