Aaaaah....this has been the most pleasant three day weekend!!! And Father's Day weekend to boot! I seriously love 3 day weekends!! They are the best! Not sure what can top them...except maybe part-time jobs! LOL
We've had the most relaxing and yet productive weekend. I'm thankful for that, too, because there were multiple times I wanted to just break down and cry because I miss my dear dad so much. But...I didn't. It's all good.
The hubs and I ran errands together....took naps....sat around our fire pit and made s'mores....lounged outside on Saturday in the sun....watched a few movies....we had lots of together time and it was great! :o)
I even finished a book I was reading----Swim To Me. It was okay....it just ENDED though and I hate when they just END. I want things all wrapped up pretty much when I get to that last punctuation mark. But it was an okay read. I was going to start the Twilight series....since I'm sure I MUST be missing out on something fabulous...but decided instead to pick up The Jane Austen Book Club, since my friend, Paulette, was going to watch the movie the other night! I've had this book by my chair for...well...let's just say too long. So that's next on the reading list! THEN I'll dive in to the Twilight saga.
In other news....I caved in late Friday evening....the A/C is now on.....I couldn't take the unbearable humidity Friday night...it was BAD.....couple that with the occasional hot flash while I'm TRYING to sleep thru the night..and...well....yeah....the A/C is great! :o)
Today I did get some time in the sewing room.....I pulled these
and spent time with my iron and Best Press and ended up with these
and then cut and cut and cut
and ended up with these
Now...I have absolutely no idea if I have way too many strips or not enough...I just cut...I'm winging it on the log fence quilt....so we'll see how many blocks I get with what I've got cut and we'll take it from there! I'm excited to get started on the piecing!!
Also making me excited is the progress I'm slowly making on Ann Rayner! I'm laying a pic of the finished sampler beside my progress, for those inquiring minds who didn't think they had seen this one...
I'm working on some of the motifs now....so I think it will hold my interest enough to continue with her for a bit!
We grilled out steaks tonight, sat around the fire pit, and just continued the relaxed mode. A fitting end to a perfect Father's Day weekend!
I hope you all had an equally wonderful weekend!
