I just love Sundays!
Not only because it is now my practice to make time to rest and do some relaxing hand stitching, but also because of the Slow Sunday Stitching link up party. Thank you to each blogger who links up with the Slow Sunday Stitching party, and to each person who takes the time to comment and encourage our slow stitching friends. As the links appear throughout the day, it is almost like a little Christmas to see the wonderful projects being stitched and to be inspired by the words and stitches of other creative souls. Last week was a great lineup of projects to enjoy! We had some binding, applique, cross stitch, embroidery, crochet, hand quilting, crazy quilting, english paper piecing, and some block piecing by hand... what more could a hand stitcher ask for?!?!
I would also like to say thank you to Connie over at Freemotion by the River for making the link up button for me, and thank you to Angela over at SoScrappy for the instructions on how to get the magical code to link it up. If you are not a blogger, you would be amazed at how many steps it takes to host a weekly linky blog post, and it really does "take a village"! Thank you to everyone!
This is sounding like an Academy Award speech (cue the music!) and I didn't even win an award! I just want to acknowledge those who have been so generous with their help along the way.
Okay...back to Slow Sunday Stitching. I will be working on my Accidental Quilt, aka "Up, Up and Away". I machine stitched the binding to the front of the quilt, and today I will be hand stitching it down on the back of the quilt.
I found the perfect fabric for the binding - Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille.
A little pack of Marmalade squares that was gifted to me at February's quilt camp started this project in the first place, so I was happy to find some yardage for the binding. I will be finishing the stitching on this binding today!
What are you hand stitching? Share your project in the links below... can't wait to see what you're working on today!
