Welcome to the world of relaxing hand stitching! Grab yourself a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the blog posted about stitching by hand.
Last Sunday we had a record number of 29 link ups and we enjoyed seeing many wonderful projects being made the slow, "old fashioned" way ...thanks to everyone who posted!
To celebrate we are having a giveaway today. In keeping with the S L O W theme here at Slow Sunday Stitching, I have 3 fat quarters of this Michael Miller turtle fabric to give away. Just look at those cute turtles! All comments will be entered to win and I will pick the winners and notify you when the link up closes on Tuesday.
I was treated to a real (not fabric) turtle sighting this week - a Midland Painted Turtle, who was taking it's own sweet time getting across a gravel road. I made sure it finished crossing safely, and I was thankful to see this very pretty turtle (look at the yellow and orange highlights!) And I reminded myself that I am proud to be a "turtle stitcher"!
Okay... onto my slow stitching project this week... I have been hand quilting my "Always Home" wall hanging and couldn't find my regular thimbles. I tried to use this thimble my son bought me when in Austria. But it didn't work well because the dimples weren't deep enough to catch the needle. I guess this is a thimble for admiring, not using!
So then I tried this new thimble I bought to try - Clover's adjustable ring thimble. But the logistics of how it worked just didn't work for me. I tried to use it like the picture showed, but nope... it didn't work.
So I didn't make much progress, but today I'll be enjoying some hand quilting as soon as I locate my favorite thimbles!
