Slow Sunday Stitching - Yellow Seeds
I am back from the Quilt Canada conference and have more to share about that later today, but first...
it's Slow Sunday Stitching time!
Before I left home to attend the conference, I prepped a few pumpkin seed blocks to stitch whenever I had a chance for a little bit of relaxing hand stitching. It's an easy, portable and quick block to pick up and sew a few stitches here and there.
I did have a few chances to do some hand stitching. I tried to sit on this rock here by the yellow flowers and stitch a bit, but quickly discovered little red ants climbing all over the rocks, so I didn't stay there very long!
Then I went to my favorite spot on the Brock University campus and sat in the sun by the little water fall. It was very quiet and peaceful. While I stitched, I remembered the fun I had this week, the talented quilters I met, the new skills I learned, the fantastic quilts I saw, and the new projects I have started... and I felt very blessed to be there.
Today I'll be relaxing, downloading all my photos and doing more hand applique on my yellow pumpkin seed blocks.
And a quick shout out to my wonderful Dad because it's Father's Day today and I haven't seen him all week!
Here he is with two of his grandsons in one of my favorite photos of him.
