Sunday Sewing

 I have had a good but very quiet day today, Hubby is on night shift so while he sleeps  the boys and I do things that are quiet. They play computer and I sit and stitch.  I framed my Nat Bird stitchery and it looks so nice next to the other one.
 I do love her designs.
  My very good friend who lives in the UK is having a birthday  soon so I made her a table runner. The fabrics match the mug rugs I made her for Christmas.
 I put the final touches on a little bag I made for myself, I love the fabrics and the colours. Red and Aqua are always such a good combination.
While Paul was up for a few hours today I made use of the time in the sewing room and I made these hourglass blocks for my new Christmas quilt I mentioned in my post yesterday. I'm using Christmas Fun fabric by Lynette Anderson. Its so cute.   I can't wait to start putting it together.

How did you spend your Sunday? I hope it was a good day with a little bit of sewing.

What a wonderful Sunday! You should train your hubby that the sound of the machine is soothing and he will sleep through it!

I relate to having a shift worker in the house. Hubby did it for many years. You have achieved some gorgoues projects there.
