Welcome to the Slow Sunday Stitching link up where we celebrate all the benefits of hand stitching. It's also Easter, which is a busy time for some families, so I hope you can find even a few minutes in between all the activities to pick up a needle and thread and put some stitches into a project you are working on.
It is not at all Easter or Spring like around here. We had an ice storm this week that closed the schools, and shut off our power. Just look at the poor daffodils! But it's still perfect weather to stay indoors for some slow stitching time.
I have been working on my Life Is Beautiful blocks this week. These are some of the embroidery blocks that are hand appliqued onto the 4 patch background blocks. When the fabric is cutaway from behind the circle, that piece is appliqued on the next blocks.
Here are those blocks... they have the cutaway circles appliqued to the centre of the 4 patches.
The next step will be to start hand quilting these blocks, since the assembly is quilt-as-you-go.
But first I have to finish up the rest of the embroidery blocks.
This is the block I'll be finishing today.
What are your plans for hand stitching today?
