Lazy Day Sunday

Yep, just look at these 2 big ol' goof balls!

Aiden and Mosen
I got up to do go to church and when I came back there they were. Like that is their chair or something. SHEESH!! I let them stay though and did some cleaning. Then I decided that it was time to sew. I decided it was time to work on the water quilt. I may, in fact, actually have enough fabrics cut to make 2 of these, thus solving my dilemma of who this quilt needs to go to. I really want to give it to DD2 and I think it would make a nice grad present for my niece (also a swimmer). She is not graduating until next June though so her quilt could be something different. Just trying to use up what I have already cut though. So, if there is enough, then there will be 2. The blocks are kind of mindless sewing anyway. A split 9 patch really. I have finished 16 so far, see? I love working with these colors. Very soothing. I am also "reading" via my iPod, to Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, which I am enjoying immensely!! If I do 2 of them I may have to get some additional border fabric but maybe not will have to check the stash first of course!!
Blocks in progress

As kind of an interesting aside, the message at mass today really hit home. Part of it spoke of having a "wicked mouth in a group of people with wicked mouths". That made me think better of what I said before. Mass went on to say that only through the grace of God will I be worthy. So I have asked for His grace and feel like if He can extend this to me so should others. It doesn't really matter though as long as he will. I have had a more peaceful day than I have had in a long time. I needed to hear that message today. How fortuitous that I had to pick up the deviled egg containers from the church for the deviled eggs we are making for the funeral lunch tomorrow and decided to go to mass at the same time, right? I never question how He moves in my life, I just try to pay attention and be open to His presence.

Yes, I am not perfect, but I am learning to follow where He leads me.

This is going to be a lovely quilt. The colours are beautiful. I look forward to seeing the end result.
Your cats have the right idea :o)

Aw, kitties look so comfy! Love the colors in this quilt, or quilts - water fabrics are my fave!

So glad you were able to go to church and hear the message - we all need that reminder!

It LOOKS like the kitties belong there and obviously THEY think they belong there so they MUST belong there LOL.

Love the fabrics in this project!!
