A busy weekend.........

.....I met Mama Spark at Zumba Gold Friday morning for 10:15 a.m.
rushed home...finished vacuuming and showered
before my DDIL, Dniece and DGS arrived Friday in time for lunch. 
Mama Spark joined us for the day ....I made everyones favorite sandwiches......
egg salad, roasted chicken salad with red grape, and ham salad....
had veggies and dip and reduced fat kettle chips...
Mama Spark brought rice krispie squares and chocolate chip banana bread
and I had oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip cookies....
everything was YUMMY and
then we headed to the basement to SEW and sew some more

My Dniece finished a baby quilt....Eat, Play, Sleep, Repeat quilt...
and started working on another Moda Bake Shop quilt. Not sure the name of it...
She had a very good sewing weekend....
as did DDIL who worked on her DD1 quilt and
2 twin size quilts will be going to Liz's for quilting on Friday....
DD1 will be sEw happy to get her new quilts.....Heather Ross fabrics...she is excited!!
I'll take pictures after they are quilted. 

For supper I made 2 pasta dishes ...
chicken breast with alfredo sauce and orecchiette pasta
and ruffles pasta with meatballs....
caesar salad and flat bread....
thanks for the picture Mama Spark...she is always taking pictures.

FNSI Dinner

After dinner we went to the basement to sew again...... was Heidi's Friday Night Sew In.

 Mama Spark left about 9 o'clockish 
..... the rest of us called it a night around 11:00 p.m.

I didn't take any pictures......bad ME!!!

Saturday we did a little shopping...
.....Target, Kohl's, Joanne's Fabrics and Bath and Body
then it was more sewing.... the a.m. DH took DGS to Liz's farm and dropped off 3 for Liz to quilt
.. he loved the farm but Mr. Rooster wasn't happy!!
and then to the movies in the p.m.
Sunday DDIL and Dniece did a little more shopping....
....had lunch and headed out before the storm arrived.
They made it back to Canada without any bad weather.

It started snowing here around 1:30 while I was at JAF's
looking for medium size brown ric rac.
We got about 12" of heavy snow....and we are suppose to get 2 more storms this week.
I've just about had enough of Old Man Winter!!!!

To day was quiet....I sewed on my secret project....
and finished block 2 of Little Miss Shabby's Birdie BOM.
....they look sEw darn cute....

Hugs and Happy Stitching


  1. I'll have a helping of the meatballs please. And the Mr & Mrs Birdie is so cute!!

  2. You certainly know how to pack a lot into a couple of days. Very busy and very productive! Sounds like you had a really good time with all the family there.
    The food looks delicious and i love the block.
    What is going on with your weather? Surely you have run out of snow by now!! Pleased you can stay in where it is warm.

  3. Goodness what a wonderful weekend you had!! I'm so sorry you got hit with another winter storm, it was probably the one that got us the day before. I think we should all start a mantra...It's Time For Spring!!!!


  4. Recipes? Both pasta dishes look divine!

  5. All the food was great and the company was even better. So happy you are making progress on your secret project. I was happy to get mine finished and to get some other stuff done. Thanks for sharing your FNSI with me!!

  6. Pauline I loved your post on Stash Manicure today and now seeing the little birdie embroidery in the center of the block, I like it even better.

    When can I come over for supper & a sew in? LOL Your food looks so good and you get so much done in a day--Zumba too?

    Hey, we beat the storm here in NH last time. We just got a dusting and it was gone by the afternoon. Course there's still 3 ft on the ground leftover from the previous storms.

    Great post on SM. Loved the tutorial.
    Gail :)

  7. I'm jealous, I want Mama Spark to come to MY house!

    Yes, I'd like your two recipes too.

  8. It was a great weekend...glad to get those quilts off my mind. Thanks for helping :)
    Leah will be over the moon (as usual)!

  9. P.S. I love the heart buttons on your embroidery block. Cute!

  10. Not fair I want to live closer! Pauline's cooking and quilting expertise all at once; HEAVEN.

  11. Oh those little birdies are so pretty and they look so happy. Pretty scrappy border too.
