Sunday Afternoon Bliss


There is just something about Sunday afternoons isn't there? 

A sort of calming things happens around here and especcially this time of the year as the fire is usually going, football can be heard throughout the house, the veggies for Sunday night roast are done and it's time to chill out for a few hours before the children come home and bring with them their own families and partners.


It is normally my regular chance to get a few daylight hours of stitching in as I sit back and watch my team play or a lovely girlie movie.


I have been organising things in my sewing room again and have labelled many of my boxes so that I don't waste anymore precious time looking for something that I know where I put but just can't lay my hands too - You know the feeling?


I sure hope I can keep things neat and tidy


But at least everything has a proper home now so even if I do get a bit messy from time to time it shouldn't be too much to get it all neat and tidy again - Well that's the theory anyway.......


Many evenings after work have been spent cutting and folding fabric for next weeks Craft & Quilt Fair.  It will mean 4 days away from my loved ones but it should be fun and there is nothing better than a bit of retail theraphy for the soul which I am sure I will squeeze in over those 4 days.



There are many many bargains to be had if you are going - With the change of direction of my business all fabrics which aren't being used in my own designs are going out the door !!


Talking about doors here is my angel story design wall on my studio door.  Block 3 is now complete.


I know that I have told you before but I really love this quilt - I am enjoying every stitch.



And some more applique has been happening around here


My " Happy Happy Garden" quilt is progressing nicely and hopefully this afternoon I can get a bit more applique done.  Do you love Sunday afternoons too? 

Love and Hugs - Fee XX

Your Angel Story blocks look lovely. I usually sew on Sunday afternoons but will be (reluctantly) heading out the door soon for band practice.
See you on Friday at the fair.

I love Sunday afternoons in the summer. In winter, that's when the 3 boys play football so Sundays are out. In summer, their sports are on Saturday so I get to stitch on Sunday afternoons.

Sue said...

Please keep showing pictures of your lovely organised sewing room....I'm hoping to be inspired!

Michelle said...
