Weekending





























Oh dear, the gust wind has been blowing all day long and the sky was gloomy and it snowed a little. The sun was out and about for a very short time, maybe a few seconds. We decided to stay in and stay  in our comfortable wears. S has her schedule set {It has been working super well this past week}; I, on the other hand has my mind on the projects that would like to start and hope finish soon.

Then the afternoon was so quiet around here. S was upstair in her little room and reading her new books that we got from the library that left me downstair alone with a cup of hot tea and some more fresh made scones from Saturday morning then it was a perfect time for camelot block assembling time, but guess I wasn't fully paying attention on the blocks, so it took so much longer. My half attention was looking out the window and just watching the sky changed and kept repeated to self; what's up with the sky over the west side of the town? School probably is going to start two hours late...

I learned to used red thread for the hand-sewing, so it is easier to see the stitches and if any mistakes during the process. I used the single thread and it has been working really well.  There are total of 16 blocks in Camelot quilt and 13 more to go! I have decided to set this project into another w.i.p. work for now and visit it when I have more sewing time and bigger/wilder sewing space to set everything around. I fascinated this quilt will be in the future sewing room's wall and I probably will feel so proud that it is hand sewn and possibiliy hand quilted.

The weekending is rather quick and short for us now. We are not complaining the cold as we try to think spring will be here soon! Mornings are so hard to wake up these days as it is warm and cozy with quilts layer on top of each other. I wish there are extended weekending..., yes i do!

{the post didn't make it published last night as I fast asleep...}

Happy Monday, indeed~

  4. I just love your work and your blog. Please post as often as you can! And, I am thinking of you in the very, very bitter cold temps out there. I'm on the East Coast and it's pretty darned cold here - but nothing like ND! And, I agree - when the weather is this cold, we should not have to ever leave the house! Thank you again for your wonderful quilting - I so enjoy it!

  9. Fantastic circles. I love handsewing, so much love and care goes into it. There's loads of rain here too, and flooding in places. Some fields have been under water for weeks. Your sky and water shots are lovely. Such beautiful winter colours. I hope you both have a lovely week Chase. CJ xx
