We had a very rainy Thursday and it was a welcome change from all the extreme heat we have been tolerating lately. After coffee, breakfast and my morning routine, the plan was to try to finish sewing the remainder of the prepped pieces into blocks. My goal was to finish all 36 blocks today.
Today was a good day for a crock pot supper...once the meal was prepped, there was nothing to do but sew and wait for things to cook. I had prepped several batches of cabbage rolls earlier and frozen them in batches and today was going to be a cabbage roll day! 
Don’t you love having prepped meals in the freezer . Perfect for a busy day. I have a friend who says it’s like having money in the bank, and I totally agree.

Cabbage rolls and date squares for dessert, not a gourmet feast but good hearty food! 

Before I go on about my sewing, I have to show you my new travel coffee cup. A couple weeks ago my daughter texted me that she found an online shop that had several designs of YETI cups on sale for half price. They one I just had to have, so I said, “if you put in an order, order one for me too.”
Mine arrived today!

I just know my coffee will taste great in my new cup, and it is perfect for sewing days not just for travel! 

I sewed most of the afternoon away only coming in for bathroom breaks and checking on supper. I was making progress. After supper Mr.O offered to do dishes and I went back out to sew.
I was motivated to keep at it as I saw the blocks starting to pile up. 

Finally the last one was done, and I shut things down for the night, with a plan to come in and write a short blog post before bed. My goodness, when I looked at my watch it was well past midnight and Mr O had gone to bed! (Time to turn the calendar page!)

As I said, my plan was to finish my blocks “today” and even though this is officially Friday, my blocks are finished and it is still “today”

I love it when meals ar taken care of so I can sew/make art all day. I’d never make it to midnight though! I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of Pooh and his friends. I hope to make it to the movie.
