I only managed a little stitching this week. A nasty cold has been going around my office and Thursday was my turn to get it. It really knocked me for a loop, so I’ve been taking it easy much of the weekend. The weather hasn’t been great, so I didn’t mind all that much. It’s been a while since I sat in the recliner and watched movies all day. Yesterday some favorites, Ghostbusters and Overboard, were on TV and since I’ve seen them both many times, it didn’t matter when I drifted off to sleep for a bit! Before I caught the cold, I decided to get back to making hexagon rosettes for my Route 66 quilt. I’ve only made three full rosettes so far and need to get sewing if I want to finish it any time soon. I’m hand piecing them and as much as I love EPP, hand piecing is a nice break once in a while. I still have to decide what fabric will be on the next ring of hexagons, but this was a good start for what turned out to be a hectic week.
I also hosted a Father’s Day brunch for family at my house this morning. We had a really nice visit and the bonus was that I had a few hours after they left to stitch together two more EPP stars. (They had been already glue basted so it went pretty quickly.)
It has been either raining or threatening to rain most of the day, but a few hours ago the sun broke through for a while and my husband and I saw a rainbow, which always makes us happy.
