Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly link up party for hand stitchers!


Today will be a rest and recovery day for me following St. Patrick's Day celebrations yesterday. I usually paint my hair green and have a wee drink or two with my Irish friends. Needless to say, everything I do today will be done s-l-o-w-l-y!






There will be lots of time for slow stitching while I visit with a friend who is staying for the weekend. While chatting I hope to finish the 6th block of Gail Pan's "Send my love" BOM. This block has backstitch, lazy daisy stitch and french knots. The next three block patterns have been sent by email to the "i stitch" group. This month we'll be stitching a flower basket, a sewing machine, and a butterfly. They are so cute and I can't wait to trace them out and get going on them. 

What are you hand stitching today? We love to see what you're working on, so link up your blog post below and share your progress with us.

  12. No link this week from me. I've lost my mojo somewhere as work and house and yard have (temporarily) taken over my life.

    Hopefully I'll see you all next week.
