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...

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

  7. 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!

  9. 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!
