Clocks back and Stitching slowly on Sunday

Even after leaving a few post it notes around the house I still forgot to set the clocks back last night so this morning at 8:15 I set to work getting the correct time on all my clocks, note to self: get rid of some of those clocks.  The best thing about forgetting is now I can live that hour over again.

I started on block 11 for the Hocuspocusville quilt last night, not much progress when you look at it but it took a while to get the big tire on the bicycle done.
This block doesn't have that much to stitch so I think I will be done much quicker than some of the other blocks.  I'll be linking my post over at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching click on the link to see what other bloggers are slow stitching today:
On Monday I will link up here at Super Mom No Cape.

My friend Yvonne sent me this cut little crocheted tea cup she made, my photo doesn't do it justice, the yarn is a lovely lavender trimmed with white and sits on a crocheted saucer.
I am going to stick a small plastic cup or cupcake liner inside to make it sturdy, I do that when I make the quilted tea cups, that way I can fill it will potpourri or small trinkets.

This week I  made my way over to the library to renew my library card and check out a few books.
I didn't make it to the local quilt show this weekend, It wasn't that I was sick or anything I can't really put my finger on it except to say I just wasn't in the mood to go and I didn't feel like driving over. I will just have to catch the 2018 show.


  1. I love seeing the hocus pocusville blocks that people are working on. Have fun stitching today.

  2. Enjoy your extra hour of stitching on Hocus Pocusville today! :)

  3. There are some benefits of forgetting to change the clocks! Enjoy your bonus hour. Cute cup and saucer by the way!

  4. Funny, I went to my local quilt show, but I wasn't really in the mood either. I didn't even buy anything. I can see where that bike and tire would take some time to stitch. I love that little teacup and saucer. So pretty.

  5. Another fun hocuspocusville block!
    Hope you enjoyed your slow stitching today!

  6. Those hocuspocusville blocks look like so much fun. I love the crocheted tea cup. Adding a cupcake liner is a great idea.

  7. I'm so glad you liked the Tea Cup. You can also take it outside and us hair spray or use spray starch to stiffen to make it sturdy.
