Wow, what a nap . . . . .

Dear Hubby always told me that if I took a nap that long, I probably needed it.  I can't believe I slept for 3 hours! A good, hard sleep.  I haven't been sleeping well lately so it was much needed and appreciated.

First I want to show what I did last weekend.


The Married One and the Wild One joined me for a "Christmas in July" party.  Yea, I know it was August but it had to be postponed from earlier.  The one on the left has already had the handwork applied.  I haven't decided what I am doing with these or how I am going to finish them but they are adorable!


They are an adaptation of a stitchery pattern from Buttermilk Basin.  The pattern is 10 years old but what I like about Stacy's website is that she keeps all her patterns on there, no matter how old they are.  This pattern is located in the bottom half of the "Winter" page.

This is what I have done since I woke up from the nap .....


I have also fused all the pieces together that needed to be.  Handwork will be done over the next week at night and hopefully have a finished top to show you next weekend.  Hopefully more tonight.  Off to eat dinner .... Dear Hubby is cooking for us tonight ..... something Mexican!

Golf has been postponed due to weather, the Carolina Panthers (American football) is on tv tonight so I may have to escape to my room and watch the Harry Potter marathon.

Blessings, Cathi

So sorry I missed yesterday. We had a series of electrical storms and sheets of rain all day. I decided it was not a day to sew or browse the computer. I've been catching up. It looks like everyone had a wonderful creative day. Thanks for hosting.

*mmmm* naps!

Those mittens are darned cute. You could use them instead of gift wrap. But then you would have to make more, so you could have them for your very own, too.
