Welcome to Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's blog!
Pull up a chair, get out one of your projects, and stitch along with us.
I have been busy with binding lately. I finished a binding for a baby quilt that my sister made for her friend. I really like using the Ultra Thimble especially when I have been hand stitching so much that I have worn a hole in the top of my finger (ouch!)
I also helped a friend (no names to protect the innocent!) bind her king sized quilt. Rumour has it that I may have "forced" her to get the quilt done, and that may be partially true. Maybe it would be more accurate to say that I "strongly encouraged" her to finish the binding, and then I just started stitching it myself until she gave in, grabbed a needle and joined in the fun!
I just love binding quilts and don't understand why other quilters procrastinate this job?
I stitched on the sides of her quilt while she tacked down the corners the way she likes them done. And before you knew it, we had a wonderful visit and she has a lovely finished quilt!
Today I will be working on improving my applique stitches by sewing a few more pumpkin seed blocks. They are very relaxing to sew and I am still enjoying working on them.
And I found a really cute pattern to make a lovely Christmas project using this block - click here to see it.
What are you hand stitching today?
