International Women's Day

Life Is Beautiful Block #2
Welcome to Slow Sunday Stitching and International Women's Day....two great reasons to celebrate today! It is fitting that I recently finished the second embroidery block for my "Life is Beautiful" project, which celebrates the laughter and love of friends.
And in keeping with the theme of Women's Day, I started stitching the third block while on a trip with my Mom and sisters. I have been blessed with a solid foundation of support from my female tribe!
Today I will be hand stitching the binding on my little challenge quilt,and hoping that my straight cut binding will be able to go around the newly curved edges. And I will be adding a few beads to sparkle up the star circle.

What are you hand stitching today? Link up your blog post below and share your progress with us...

Congrats on your finish! I think your binding will work as long as your curves aren't to tight--fingers crossed!

Kathy, is it possible for you to delete my "linky" and I'll try again...with a picture? I'm new at this.

:(

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

the quilt I linked to is actually finished and boxed up along with another quilt to be mailed to my grandchildren but I have more hand work going and more photos on the blog. I didn't know it was International Women's Day - seems there is a day for everything now!

Happy Women's day to you as well. Yes friends are what holds it all together.

Oh, I have always loved Helen's Life Is Beautiful pattern. At the moment, it's cost prohibitive for me to order, but it's definitely on my list of someday purchases. You know what? I don't have a stitchery project set up to go, but will definitely prepare one this morning.....it's on my list, too. My lists are very overwhelming!

I fixed the image Sandra so you don't need to redo.

Kate said...

Very wise words on a very cute stitchery. Enjoy your slow stitching today.

SandraC said...

How cool is that! Thanks!

I didn't realize that today was International Woman's Day ... perfect block for it, that's for sure.

Always so inspired when I read your blog Kathy! That new stitchery pattern will be a fun project and keep your fingers happy for a while :) I've been away a while, so I had to jump back to see your Challenge Quilt - great job! Looking forward to seeing the finish :)
