Sunday A Day Of Rest...NOT!

There was no resting around this household.  It was freezing cold your fingers and nose felt numb cold.  HH had to climb a tall metal ladder to replace some burned out bulbs and his hands were almost frozen to the metal.  I intended to try and get to Joann's but instead headed to Micheal's to buy another bunch of yellow flowers for wedding center pieces.  I made myself a smoothie after talking to my son and his fiance on Skyp and she had a smoothie in her hand...yum.  She told me how to fix and it and voila...lunch! All I did was throw in a handful of frozen mango, strawberries, a banana, 1/4 cup of plain yogurt, teaspoon of ground flax seed and about 1/2 cup of liquid (used some sobee ice tea). Yummm

Putzed around the sewing room and decided to see if I could make that "feathers in the heart" block that I saved on my Pinterest quilt block bulletin board.  It turned out great!  I watched a "quilt toot" on my pin site that showed me how to paper piece.  I am still not sold on it...seems that you waste a lot of fabric...or maybe it is just me that can't figure out how not too! lol  I am going to make 6 of them and put them together into a wall hanging...cause I really love this and it will be a 4th of July decoration!

Today is Monday and it bring with it all the things that are about Mondays...hope yours is filled with hope.


  1. Very cute block. Will be so cute as a wallhanging. Have a good one!

  2. The block came out wonderfully. I want to try some smoothies, would be nice for a summer drink too.


  3. You did a lovely job on your heart block Anna, take a bow. Love the fabric choices with the stars and hearts.

    Soon you'll love doing it as it is a great way to use up scraps. I like cutting a strip of fabric just wider than the greatest width of a section and then you can almost chain sew.
