Slow Sunday Stitching

It's Slow Stitching Sunday! I will be stitching more slowly than usual today as I recover from a nasty cold. We all know about the amazing healing powers of hand stitching, so I am prescribing a double dose of it for myself. Fits of coughing and drinking tea will be interrupted as frequently as possible with some hand stitching. 

This is the next block in my star quilt that I am working on. The inside square-in-a-square filler design has been completed, and next I will be stitching lines 1/4" just inside each of the red triangles. The larger blue star triangles have already been quilted, so this block is more than half finished.




Yesterday I did a little bit of hand stitching while watching QuiltCam. I have been too busy to catch the first of two episodes of QuiltCam 2016, which is just not acceptable! This was my view - hoop on my lap, and the laptop just to the side. My lap isn't big enough for the computer and the quilting hoop! 

What are you hand stitching today? Join us at the link up below and share your progress with us.

Feel better soon - feet up and relaxing while slow stitching should help. I didn't even think about watching BH quilt cams while hand stitching - will have to do this myself.

I think I have that same red fabric that is in your star. The star is very pretty.

Hope you are getting better. I did some hand stitching last night, but, today, I'm cutting out fabric for TOBE blocks.

Feel better soon!! Sweet progress on your handquilting.

Hope you are feeling better now and that you made lots of progress while working on your remedy.

Oh I feel your coughing Kathy! I've been hacking my lungs out for a couple of weeks and my head's only just clearing - I've not been able to concentrate at all, so I'm really looking forward to catching up and popping in this weekend. I love the way your starts are coming in - and that's my favourite way of quilting too, laptop on the table, hoop in my lap! Hope you're feeling better by now and not worse! Take care.
