A Day of Rest

We seem to have been busier than usual lately, running all week long, including a golf tournament yesterday, so we're happy that today is Sunday, a day of rest. It's going to be a lazy day to catch our breath and get ready for the coming week. Much of it (for me anyway) will be spent sewing on the deck enjoying the garden and hand stitching blocks for Danuta's Garden.

My peonies are just starting to bloom and there are going to be tons of them. The plants are finally established and I am thrilled. Most of them were planted in 2011 so 'til now we've only had a few blossoms each year from the younger plants. This is the year that changes everything.

I've made one new star block and a 9-patch block this week, but that's it. There was a little cutting done - the yellow for the stars - but no time for much else.

Enjoy your Sunday, and I hope that you get to put your feet up and relax too....M

Two blocks is better than none during a busy week. Glad you found some sewing time.

Sounds like the perfect remedy for a busy week. Enjoy.

I agree with Scraphappy - a little sewing is better than no sewing at all! Our peonies are almost finished. They have such a lovely perfume and I really look forward to them every spring!
