Are you rushing around your sewing room trying to finish up some last minute gifts? I am notorious for doing this and although every single year I tell myself that I'm not doing that ever again, I always do.

Thankfully I'm not finishing up any quilts this year, but I do have two secret sewing/mending tasks to finish. Repairing items and mending jobs are not high on my list of enjoyable tasks, so my gift to certain family members is to fix their items and have them wrapped up and under the Christmas tree by tomorrow morning.
And then, I can do some fun hand stitching. I am really looking forward to some hand applique time to finish up block #34 for my Blockheads project. Here are all the threads assembled and ready to stitch down these pieces. As soon as the wrapping is done, I'll be making a cup of tea and putting some stitches into my house, while watching a Christmas movie.
Will you have any time to enjoy some hand stitching today? To entice you to write a blog post about your hand stitching, I'm having a little giveaway of this adorable Crabapple Hill Crazy Quilt Snowman embroidery pattern and some Christmas fabric to go with it.
All of today's link ups will be entered in the draw, and the winner be determined by a random draw on Christmas morning. I hope you will take a moment to relax and do some hand stitching. Then tell us what you're stitching, and what you hope to finish up to put under the Christmas tree for someone special.
Happy Christmas Eve to my Slow Sunday Stitching readers!
