Slow Sunday Stitching

Ahh... it's Sunday! Take a deep breath and let the slow stitching commence.
If you are like me and have weeded the dandelions (no jelly this time!) and cut the lawn, washed mountains of dishes and one crazy dog, done laundry and groceries, and completed numerous other invisible tasks yesterday, then you are probably ready for a relaxing day full of resting and stitching!

I finished 300" of hand binding this week on my Angel Solstice and enjoyed every stitch - if you didn't see the finished quilt, click here. Today I hope to finish the binding on Nabby's Dowry and then I will have another quilt finished before the end of the month!
And if I get the binding finished, I will enjoy some applique on my green pumpkin seed blocks.
What kind of hand stitching are you enjoying today? We would love to see what you're working on, so please link up your blog post below and share your progress!

I am planning some hand quilting on the border of my little Dear Jane. Thanks for the weekly reminder to breath. I'll be enjoying every minute too.

I am tired just reading all that you did yesterday.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

my lazy day will consist of going back and forth between several projects I imagine - stitch a row or two by machine (which I do not care for) then relax with the joy of hexies on the porch! I will finish off the day with an hour or so of working at the quilting frame this evening.

I wish I could sit with my stitching today, but unfortunately this is one of those days full of commitments that will take me away for most of the day. Boo hoo!

I don't like to hand stitch binding, but you make it sound so inviting and relaxing after thinking about my busy week. I love your Slow Stitching Sunday posts!

Looks like a perfect binding going on your Nabby's Dowry!

I wanted to link up but don't know how. I am a techno idiot. Anyway, I am slow stitching the minding on the quilt I made for my hubby while he was in Hospice care. I had to rush the finish so I machine bound it (not very well I might say). Now that he has passed I have removed the minding and am reattaching it by hand. So today I will finish it up and take time to be thankful he was in my life for 37 years.

Whole lot of binding going on at your house! ;-)

So glad you are accomplishing so much. thanks for the linky! I kept up with you on the busy department too... including washing a dog! lol Kathi

Never tried dandelion jelly. My dad used to make dandelion wine every year when we were a kid. He sent us to the park to pick bags full of them. That was before they sprayed with chemicals. Used to eat dandelion greens in our salad too.

Happy binding!

Hummm I love Nabby's Dowry quilt. Congrats on a finish. (I am that convince you will finish it today.) Can't wait to see more pumpkin seed blocks. Enjoy your day stitching.
