I am back to reading. Haven't been reading in years. Have never been a great reader ever actually, but this Swedish debut novel is hard to put aside... It made me stay up til midnight last night and to put my plans on sewing aside while kids still are in bed this morning.
While kids insisted on starting their Sunday with the movie Chipmunks 3 this morning (for the 8th or 9th time now!!! Is it really that good? a mother wonder...) I took my chance and pieced my last squares for my Mama's Quilt. I am planning to embroider our names in the white squares, me and my 4 brother's names that is... And then I need a border of the blue and white stripy fabric there on the chair and for a binding... Well, I haven't really decided yet.
I managed to do some tidy up in my crafty space last night but still there are WiP's hanging and lying around everywhere. I find the fabric pieces hung over chair backs and cupboard doors to pretty to fold up and put away so they will have to stay.
Tonight I'll make a simple and light dinner with all the veggies from the garden... Maybe grilled chicken with a potato and ruccola salad, fresh baby carrots as the kids love the best raw, and yummy green beans drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil... Maybe something like that... Happiness it is to harvest your own vegetables and make dinner plans out of what the day has to offer.
And now it is time for some swimming. I am not sure if it will be the busy outdoor pool in the village close by, or if we actually might go down to the Geneva lake and hang out for the afternoon. Time will tell. A lazy Sunday tend to unfold as it passes by and I really like that. What are you up to?
PS Carol! I got the fabric. Will list it my shop today or tomorrow.
