Slow Sunday Stitching New Year's Eve

Welcome to the last Slow Sunday Stitching link up for 2017! It has been another wonderful year of being inspired by your beautiful hand stitched projects each Sunday. I thank you for sharing your blog posts, and for every encouraging comment you took the time to write to another stitcher over the course of the year.



Not much hand stitching has been going on here over the holidays. There has been a lot of game playing, jigsaw puzzling, cooking, and visiting. I did have a bit of time to finish the hand applique on block #34 for my Blockheads project. The front door is a little wonky but I like it that way. 


As a follow up to the December saga of trying to knit earbud pouches for my nieces and nephews, I totally abandoned the project and was bailed out by my friend Wendy. These are the pouches she knit for me to give to my family. They were a big hit and some day I'm going to learn how to make them myself!


The last of my holiday visitors are leaving to travel home today, so I will have some time to relax, to stitch, and to visit your blogs and see what projects you are stitching on this last day of 2017. 
Happy New Year!

  1. The slightly wonky door adds character to the house. Thank you for your slow stitching link party as it has certainly made me slow down and get some hand stitching done. I'm looking forward to doing more in 2018 and enjoying see the amazing work of everyone who links up.

  17. Happy New Year to you and your family. So glad you had a nice visit with your company and now can relax with some slow stitching. I'm off to do a little myself as I welcome in the new year. My favorite stitching is sewing the final bindings on quilts. Hope you have a great 2018 and get in lots of hand sewing hours. Thanks much for offering the link up each week. Hope to link up more often in 2018.

  18. Hi! Coming in here through the back door (Carol's "Beads and Birds" blog). I don't have a blog to link these days, but I follow a few besties. I just have to comment on the ear bud holders, genius! I am so annoyed by how often I need my ear buds and find them hopelessly tangled, grrrrr. I used to knit non-stop and would make this if my arthritic hands would allow. Do you know anywhere I might purchase one, perhaps Etsy? Btw, that off-kilter door is perfect! 😻
