Slow Sunday Stitching

It's finally Sunday - a day of rest, reflection, renewal, and slow stitching! Why not join us as we get out our hand stitching projects and put in a few relaxing stitches?


I'm working on my Life Is Beautiful project today. I put all the finished blocks on the design wall to see where this project is at. 
30 blocks are quilted, which is almost the half way point. I have quilted more embroidered blocks than the alternate blocks, so today I'm going to pin baste a stack of alternate blocks to work on.




I have the blocks appliqued, the batting and backing squares cut, and am ready to get a few more blocks completed. Well, the completion won't happen today, but lots of stitching will be happening and they will all get finished eventually.



What are you hand stitching today? We love to see what you're creating so link up your blog post and share your project with us.

**Sorry the link up didn't work right this morning! I was camping and set an autopost that apparently didn't like my instructions. Click page refresh and hopefully the updated link will appear...

  13. Almost time to head in and attempt to clean up the sewing area a little bit. I'll be doing a little slow stitching later on the blue dresden. I'll try and make a post later today. There is a way to fix the blogspot comment issue - hope you found it! Essentially remove your email from the posting comments forwarding... save and then add it back.

  14. The LIB quilt was on display at a local show I attended last month. I really like the embroidered sayings! I think that the process of stitching them would be very therapeutic.
