Slow Stitching Sunday.......

I have had a lot of fun this week blog hopping on Celebrate Hand Quilting.  So many beautiful quilts, wonderful ideas and useful tips.  Sundays have always been my slow down, quiet days and when I came across Kathy's Quilts Slow Stitching Sunday's I wanted to participate.  I like having a lot of projects going so that I can work on each a little here and little there.  Today, it's cloudy, cool and rain in the forecast so I decided to work on my HocusPocusville quilt blocks.

So wonder on over to Kathy's Quilts and check out the Slow Sunday Stitching!

Celebrate Hand Quilting Blog Hop Tomorrow

I love hand quilting and tomorrow Celebrate Hand Quilting Blog Hop starts--excited to do some hopping!

I  myself haven't been getting much quilting time in.  We had a burst of unseasonably warm weather, so took advantage of it to get some yard work done.  But I have made some progress on my purple cat quilt.  I only have 6 more cats to quilt before I get started on the borders.
This is the major project I've been working on in the yard.  It was a sloped area of the yard that I decided to do into two tiers. It looks a mess right now, but I have visions of it turning into something nice and also (hopefully) easy to maintain.  It's taking me a lot longer than I anticipated, finding that my 60-year-old body can't do as much as it used to.  Hope to get two 4x4 garden boxes built soon so I can at least get something planted on the lower tier this year.   
The dogs aren't much help!
 This bottom tier is about 7'x12'
