Slow Sunday Stitching

It's Sunday! 
Time for some relaxing Slow Sunday Stitching!


 I am excited to share that I have finished 1/3 of the hand quilting (not including the border) on my Journey of a Quilter. I have quilted parts of some of the other blocks too, but blocks 3, 5 and 6 are completely quilted as of today! 



I finished the hand embroidery on block #3 in the fall of 2007 and here it is only 5.5 years later all quilted!

Wow...that journey went by fast!






Today I am going to spend some minutes hand quilting and hope you will make some time to do some relaxing stitching too! Link up your hand stitching post below and share your progress to inspire all of us slow stitchers.

  5. I always love to see your journey! I am doing a little hand quilting today on a mini-quilt while watching TV...too cold to garden. Enjoy your day!

  7. Love how your quilt is looking with all the wonderful quilting stitches in it now :*) I wish I had found time for some slow stitching this week but it was not to be. Hoping to rectify that this week!
