Quiet Day Quilting

I made bread so the kids would have something for sandwiches.

And to go with the pot of stew I let simmer on the stove for dinner.

I loaded the washing machine.

And while the oven baked, the stew simmered, and the washing machine whirled...

I had a quiet day sewing.

I made my Friday Block party block. Needed to get that done since there would be a new one today.

Then I sat and bond 'Bing Zing'
Happy to say it is all done!
YEAH!!
Have a great weekend!

  13. My favorite kind of day. I used to make bread years ago, but we just ate too much of it and had to stop, but cornbread is good with stew and soup too!
