Happy Sunday!!!

Good morning all! Beautiful morning around here. Of course it is hot, but what do you expect for June in the desert? It has put a damper on my walking, but that just means more time to get things done in the house especially in the sewing/quilting room.

Happy Father's Day!! When I was a kid my Dad wasn't around so I never got into the Father's day thing like I did with my Mom on Mother's day. My husband has had a tradition since I have known him that he has steak and eggs for breakfast. With church starting at 9 AM I was going to fix it for him after we returned home, but I guess he's hungry now because I hear banging in the kitchen. After he had his heart surgery last year and was laying around he got hooked on the show 'NCIS'. So for Father's Day I found a good deal on the first 6 years on DVD and got that for him. It arrived on Friday and of course I couldn't keep it till today...... So we have been watching 'NCIS' the past 2 days. Not much else any good on TV right now until the summer series start up.... Yes, I love 'The Closer' and 'Leverage' so am waiting for them to start again. There is a new series that starts in July that I just may view at least once. 

Friday was a day off of work for me. Yippee!!! I was able to spend the day with my friend Lynne. It was great to be able to sit around and talk. For days after we have a visit I think about what we have talked about and I am always amazed at the different topics that we discuss. It is not the usual 'gossip' session and of course we always solve the worlds problems while we are at it!!! Thanks for a relaxing day, Lynne!! Of course I have to tell you how sneaky this friend is, there was a surprise in my purse when I got home!!! Thank you dear friend. I have a feeling an empty spot on my wall is going to get filled one day soon! You KNOW I WILL get even!!!

I have been in a funk with my quilting lately. I just have not had any inspiration to get out into the sewing room, but saw this quilt that caught my eye.

It is a quilt along that I am going to try to keep up with. I love stars and have gotten into scrappy. I have been trying to figure out the main colors 'cause I sure don't need to buy any fabric!!! I did spend Saturday in the sewing room, but not doing what I should have been doing. I have a quilt on the frame that needs to be quilted, but I just have not had the desire to get it done. I know that it will only take me a couple hours to get the blasted thing quilted, but unless I am in the right frame of mind it will not go well. So, instead I dug out a paper-piecing project and completed that. I am so glad that I have a fabric stash and a great variety of patterns so that when I do get an idea I can just go put it together instead of having to spend time getting the supplies. Well, DH is in getting ready for church so I guess I had better get my buns in gear and do the same.

Have a great day everyone and a special 'Thank you' to all the fathers around the world that are in our military. I truly appreciate your service and dedication!

Happy Quilting, Sharon
