Another relaxing Sunday

Spent another lovely Sunday watching movies this past SAL (with Kati & Linda) day.  Got all my housework done early.  Hubby went off at 7 in the morning to work on his hobby project. I hate it when he leaves early because I always feel guilty lazing in bed while he's up and gone and doing things with his day already. Same thing happens when I am working at home and he's working in the shop. So I got up, vacuumed, tidied up, put a pot roast in the slow cooker and I was done for the day.  Sat down and watched: The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood,  Miss Congeniality 2, and Ghost.  Good movies to spend the day with.

With my stitching in my hands and my Lulu in my lap I had a great day.
And a closer picture of what I accomplished.

Yesterday I pulled my old WIP Elizabeth out again and actually stitched on it.  I pulled it out once before...looked at it and then put it back again.  But this time I actually made a little bit of progress.  I'll be working on that this week if I have time.  I would really like to do another Easter piece, but I can't decide what I want to do, so I just may leave what I have for next year, as nothing seems to be jumping out at me.  We'll see how the week progresses.

It's a grey day today, nothing inspiring to look at out the window.  I do have some paperwork that I should do, but then I think to myself I can do it tomorrow too.  Tonight we are going to see if our names get drawn for a seasonal site at the campsite that we like to go to for the summer.  So there won't be any stitching tonight...which makes me think...should I stitch this afternoon instead?

Fabulous progress - you must be a third of the way there now.

I'd say stitch - make the most of it being a grey day.

Wow! I had no idea just how big your project was until I saw the entire length, Barbi--it's looking spectacular. And I love a day spent stitching and watching old movies... Glad you found some good ones :)

Yesterday I had such a day like you last Sunday, just without the household part lol. But I sat and stitched and watched movies and played a little bit on the computer, blog hopping I mean. BUt couldn't get onto your blog, blogger wouldn't let me.
Great progress on your Cornwall Cottage project.
