Slow Sunday Stitching Anniversary!

Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! The Slow Sunday Stitching link up has just entered it's 7th year! You can read the first post here from 2012. I used a different link service then, so I can't look back and see who posted at the beginning, but I do know that several of our folks have been stitching with us a long time.


It's hard to believe I have been posting a hand stitching post every Sunday for 6 years now. With all that calm, meditative stitching, you'd think I'd almost be a buddhist monk by now. But no! I'm just as wound up as I was when I started, and always in need of the benefits of slow stitching.





I have a few more finished embroidery blocks that I haven't show on my blog yet from Gail Pan's "I Stitch Club". Isn't that a cute block with a spool flower holder? And of course a sewing machine has to make an appearance in the pattern collection. 


Here is the new embroidery  pattern that I traced and will begin stitching today. This cute bunny will be stitched in these colours... brown (like the backyard bunnies that used to eat my vegetable garden), orange for the carrot, and other colours for the flowers.




What are you slow stitching today?
Please link up to your blog post that features HAND stitched projects only.

Congratulations on the anniversary of Slow Sunday Stitching. It is a great link up and a real achievement to still be posting your slow stitching after 5 years. Long may it continue as I love joining in and seeing everyone's hand stitching projects.

Wow six whole years congratulations! I read your first post and I can't help wondering if the snapping turtles eggs hatched ok! Or some of them at least! Thank you for hosting this every week, it's always inspiring to look at other people's work and to get motivation from them when mine fails!

Your blocks are sweet. What kind of pen/pencil do you use for tracing?

Frédérique said...

Happy anniversary! And thank you for hosting this great linky party for so long ;) I'm quite new here, I wasn't part of the adventure 6 years ago, but I love to slow stitch. And I will continue to follow you and other slow stitchers ;)

The link up has not only helped me to relax while I do some handwork each week but, more importantly, has introduced me to new blogging friends, some of whom, I have even met in person! Thank you for 6 years of fun, inspiration and friendships! That sewing machine is so cute! Looking forward to seeing the garden bunny done, maybe by next week!

Cathy said...

Happy Anniversary! I'm always inspired on Sundays!

Congratulations Kathy! Yes, just where does the time go...we used to say the days were long and the years were fast. But I find my days go fast now too.

7 years of settling down and slow stitching...yup hasn't worked except you have gotten things done!! Love that multi-colour embroidery floss...yum!

Congratulations on 7 years of Slow Sunday Stitching. Quite an accomplishment, I mean, to post every Sunday, in health or in sickness and life's shenanigans ... Kudos, Kathy! I might not have participated in a long while but I'm here every Sunday to see what you, and all the participants, are up to. I appreciate this calm and quiet link. Thanks! And here's to many more returns. ♥ ♥ ♥ ;^)

Cute cute blocks. Are you making a quilt with your blocks? Cpngrats on your anniversary. Time flies when you're having a good time. I missed last Sunday, just too much going on. Happy to be back though.

I had not discovered your blog six years ago, but now I have, I always look forward to reading about, and sometimes joining in your Slow Stitching link up. So many thanks for hosting it all this time.
I also enjoy reading your other blog posts during the week, seeing what else you get involved in.

Congrats on 6 full years. I've been machine quilting placemats today. No slow stitching has happened here in some time (too many 'deadline' projects).

Nancy said...

Congratulations on six years, Kathy. It takes some dedication to keep it up every week. Thank you for doing it! It's a great place to visit on a quiet Sunday.

Karen said...

Seems like the Slow Sunday Stitching has always been here. I had no idea just how long. I do look forward to it and actively participate at times. I often wonder how you can write about the soothing stitching in so many ways and always interesting.

Faye said...

The sewing machine is so cute! Love it

Congratulations on 6 years of Slow Stitching! I have been following you for some time - in fact - Slow Stitching has been a favorite of mine for years. Thank you for your continued faithfulness in hosting such an inspiring party!
