Selfish Sunday Sewing

Hubby didn't come to bed until after 1:00 AM so he slept in really late so needless to say, we did not go to worship this morning.  Since he was sleeping I was selfish and had a "me mostly" day.

My daughter made pecan, chocolate chip scones while I was snoozing away (I go to bed around 9:00 PM due to having to get up at 4:15 AM on weekdays) so when I got up at 6:00 AM this morning I had one of them with my coffee.  Not on my diet but totally worth it!

I then came out and did some sorting of fabrics and pulled out the next quilt top that I want to finish for our quilt pile.  I still need to sandwich and quilt this beauty....


 but it has been hinted that a long arm might be my 25th anniversary present so I'm holding off on the big quilting projects until I see if that materializes or not..... anyway I dug this project out.. this is where I started:


And I ended today with this much:


I plan to add another row of circles to the bottom and then I'll surround this in black and then add more circles to the outside and then another black border.. etc. until it is big enough for a bed quilt.  So other than voting on a "cutest baby" contest that our grandboy is in I did stuff just for me today!  Tomorrow will be back to work and I'm going to concentrate on getting at least one square a day on weeknights done for the memory quilt.

Have a great week everyone!

Selfish??? NO!!! I am finishing up two projects for others and plan to get back to some selfish sewing. No one appreciates our work as much as we do.... that's what I've decided, anyway. ;))) Love your quilt and I am really digging those circles!
