Stitchery-a-thon

Happy Monday folks. I am enjoying a very nice cool morning....sunshine and a light breeze and bird calls all around me...my kind of start to the day. Coffee is on its way.
A quiet weekend at home is what I fancied and what I achieved this past weekend.  I pulled a weed here and there, watered the garden but mostly sat and stitched. I haven't worked on any stitchery for a while until recently. So I stitched up a storm.
3 more letters were finished in my Country at Heart Alphabet....S....T....U


2 little teeny blocks from Gardener's Journal were stitched as well.
Yesterday Mr. R. had a watching sport type date so I cosied down in my chair and watched "How to Make an American Quilt ". I had recorded it for just this type of occassion. I  do love that movie. Although I still cringe when Winona Ryder drags that beautiful quilt through the dirt......I still shout..."pick the end of that quilt up girl! " Lol! Whilst watching I traced out all the remaining blocks for GJ....
So there is no turning back now! "Quiet " may not be everyone's cup of tea but often it is definitely mine.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
