Slow Stitching Sunday

Did you remember to change your clocks?  We have a busy morning at church ahead, but I plan on some slow stitching when I get home! It is time to add the strips of hexies to the center piece of my Brinton Hall quilt. 

 
Actually, I would be quite pleased to get just one side done as I am so very slow at EPP. I am also prepping a few more scrappy hexies to add to the top and bottom.

 I did a bit of slow stitching in the car yesterday as well. 

 
My table runner is finished with mixed results. I will share more on that later this week.

Yesterday was such a lovely day! It was warm and sunny. Mr. Wonderful and I enjoyed a day of bumming around. He has been gone so much on business lately so that made it even better to have the day together. We went to some antique shops and then he surprised me by showing up at a quilt exhibition! I will share more of that later this week as it really deserves a post of its own. I will show you the lovely bag he bought for me there. 

 
How awesome is that? To top it off, we went out to dinner with Daughter #1 and our dear SIL. That meant time with Big E and Little E. 

I hope you have a wonderful day!

    It’s so confusing to read about the clocks changing. I keep thinking I’ve messed up. Over here in the UK we don’t change until the end of the month.
