Day of rest

 If you are going to the City Quilter event for the Quilters take Manhattan 
you will see the finished product there.

12 Years ago today, Hubby and I wed on the lawn, here at our house... 
I can't believe it's been 12 years. (16 in total...Time flies when you are having fun! )
We celebrated by having this lazy day! ;-)

Happy Anniversary 



We had a nice lazy day today. Went out for lunch with my family, then Hubby, very sweetly,
 took Boo to see the Harry Potter movie...  I'm not a fan of the Harry Potter movies... They put me straight to I stayed home and did some hand work on the above little piece.

I was sitting by the pool sewing, and I hear ," scratch scratch scratch",
I look up and there is a TURTLE trying to climb out of the pool!  
His nails were scratching the walls! Poor thing!
I ran over, he ducked inside and bobbed up and down in his little shell in the water...
he he!
I picked him and and set him off in the woods so the dogs wouldn't bother him.

I was about to jump in the pool too! Wouldn't that have been a nice surprise to 
find I had a swimming buddy! LOL!

I got out the signature blocks and laid them outside on the deck so I could see how many I had,
 and work out the arrangement.
I have the rows sewn together, next I lad them on my bed to see what will happen in between... 
It will be pretty simple I think... the Column fabric in between, and then I will work on a 
really nice border to go all around...

They look good already just laying on the quilt I have! I will only need borders down the
 left and right sides. Maybe some squares on point...
Can you see the quilt will go right to the floor! 6 rows of 16 blocks each.
More of a bed spread really!

Hope your Sunday was a cool lazy one!
What were you doing today?


  1. Happy Anniversary to you both, Victoria! May you have many blessings & years to come.

  22. Happy Anniversary. I'm with you on the HP movies although I've never actually fallen asleep. those siggy blocks look so fabulous together!!!

  23. Happy anniversary...I love your hand stitching on the quilt, embroidery is almost a meditation for me. Love the story about the turtle in the pool! PS You don't know how good you just made me feel...I thought I was the only person in the world that didn't get on the H. Potter bandwagon.

  24. Happy Anniversary. Sweet wedding picture. Love your hand work. So much better than Harry Potter. The siggy quilt is going to be gorgeous!
