I think you might be able to guess which project got my '15 minutes' each day this week, but so there's no confusion, here it is:
MOC definitely was the winner. I wasn't counting on the driving momentum that kept me singly focused until that stage of it was finished! So much for my snowflake and my GC block! Ah well. The other thing that I *had* to give my attention to was the stitching of an Ellie dress. It was time sewing, so of course I counted it!
Unfortunately, the fabric wasn't mine, so I couldn't include it in my stash report. Which, by the way, hasn't changed a single bit since last week.
MOC has *not* been deducted from stash yet, so as soon as I get this one assembled and bound, that will be a nice usage total to add. Linking up to the stash report at Patchwork Times!
Whew, what a weekend! Friday I spent the day stitching the dress and then that evening I got to spend some time with Sawyer and June, while their mommy and daddy had a date night. Then yesterday morning was spent making a matching dress for Ellie's AG Bitty Baby. Sheesh . . . it was tougher than Ellie's dress was! Ha! And then Saturday afternoon we spent at Ellie's birthday party.
As always, Jocelyn did a beautiful job of both decorating *and* setting up a marvelous buffet table!
The food was great and fun and kid friendly!
I tried so hard to get a picture of all three cousins together, but they are *all* SO active, it's nigh impossible! This was the closest I came . . .
Sawyer, June playing with a balloon--her new favorite, Ellie-the-birthday-girl and a bonus child, Emma, Ellie's BFF (or at least Ellie's mommy's BFF's daughter). And they're all in a constant state of motion, so *every* picture I took of a living, breathing being under the age of 5, had a bit of blur to it!!
I did get Ellie to try on her dress for me . . .
But she was so busy, that getting a front picture was tough!
I did get one of her trying to put a necklace on her baby. That's as close as it's going to get. Still, she really liked that her baby had a dress like hers. It was fun and I definitely see more of these in the future!
Today is our last day at Cornerstone -- our assignment has ended. We announced it last week (you can't announce it too early or you become ineffective) and the sweet folks there are doing a little send-off party for us after this morning's service. I'm packing an extra set of Kleenex in my purse. Saying goodbye will be so hard -- especially to my sweet Sunday School girls. I imagine Todd and I will be quite done in when we get home tomorrow afternoon and I'll probably settle for some handwork on Mr. Owl . . .
He's my go-to hand project that I need to get-to! Anyway, I may put in an episode of the Walton's and do some hand-stitching. A lovely, quiet afternoon! Linking him up to Slow Sunday Stitching on Kathy's Quilts.
Shalom and Happy Sunday!
