Sunday Sundries...

It's Sunday night...back to work tomorrow.
The days of the weekend seem to go by
so much faster than the days of
the week, don't they?

Kaylynn left mid-morning.
I enjoy having her so much.

Oh!  I didn't show you this...
she told her Mom that I like to get stuff.
I've never gotten 'stuff' from her before, 
so I was especially overjoyed to receive this.

I don't know if you can see that 
the 2 middle fingers are bent over.
It is this...

Sign language for 'i love you'.
She treats it as a secret code
that we can share across the room.
I love that little girl!

After the house showing, 
it started raining.
oh.  yeah.
Claire called yesterday morning
to tell me the realtor wanted to 
show the house this morning.
That meant some cleaning needed to be done.
While Kaylynn was here.
oh joy.
Actually, it wasn't so bad.
She helped me.
It's been raining on and off all
afternoon...making for a damp & dreary day.
But, it's supposed to be in the
high 70's this week!


I finished reading a great book this afternoon.
The Mailbox by Marybeth Whalen.
You can find her here.
The book is a Christian-based romance novel.
A simple read.
A delightful read.


I sewed 2 more blocks for Paul/Rachel's quilt.
That makes 16 done!

block 15

block 16

Now I am down to deciding
where to go from here with it.
Time will tell!


Since Kaylynn was the only grandchild
here this weekend, I did not sort any woolens.
I'll get to that this week.
It's my 'from now til the end of September' project.


I've been thinking quite a bit about my big a** star rug.
I looked at the last photo I took of it...
25 months ago was the last I hooked on it! 
Hard to believe!

Here it is.
Though, I think I might have taken all 
of the brown background strips out.
Not going to go and look.
Just sayin'.

Everything that's hooked was done in 12 days.
And, just so ya know...
that star is 22" across.
Hence, BIG a** Star rug!

That's all I have for now.
Have a great week!

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10

FOR REAL???? 25 months ago? I never would have guessed that. Where does the time go?
Thanks so much for showing it. After the holidays, you MUST get busy hooking.
Hugs :)

I think my rug has been sitting for at least two years, lol. That is the problem with big rugs and putting them aside;) Sounds like you had a busy, but fun weekend, love the sign hand.
