Slow Sunday Stitching



It's been a busy weekend with lots of time with both of my sisters. We have enjoyed long talks, walks by the river, lunches, and musical theatre. And of course, we all got manicures. There was not a lot of stitching time so far, but I did manage to get one more embroidery block finished for my Life Is Beautiful project.


Life Is Beautiful Block #15

This is probably the worst hand embroidery I have ever done, which is ironic considering the words that were being stitched! I don't know why the stitches are so uneven and messy, except to say that this block was stitched in many different places, and some locations did not have good lighting (that's the best/only excuse I can think of).



What are you working on today? 
Link up your blog post of your hand stitching project and share your progress with us.

Sister time is always the best! I only have one but we have so much fun when we get together. Today I am stitching binding, hoping for a finish before the month's end.

You may see the small imperfections, but they are not obvious to me! What a great sentiment to celebrate with hand stitching!

I am not seeing bad embroidery at all! Another lovely back and I do agree that lighting is so important when we stitch!

Sounds like a great time with your sisters. And your embroidery looks fine to me. Does that mean you are too critical of your work, or I just can't see? : )
