Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party!
At Slow Sunday Stitching, we brag about our slowness, and take pride in the art of relaxing, breathing deeply, and not really accomplishing much. We believe in the health benefits of relaxation, and take it seriously enough to commit to this slowness practice at least once a week. If you need a reminder of the benefits of relaxation, click here.


I did a lot of hand stitching this week. I finished the appliqued kites, and the hand stitched binding on a group quilt (see the quilt here). I cut the binding strips from a fun fabric called "Colorworks Concept".







And I finished another one of Gail Pan's embroidery blocks for the "I Stitch" club.  These blocks are just so darn cute and are the perfect size to finish up in a short period of time. I stitched the bunny in brown thread to look like the ones we have in the backyard. 






Next up is this sweet little cat. First I trace the design onto muslin using my Frixion pen and my "light box" (see my fancy technique here).
Then I am ready to start stitching.
I hope you can join us today in enjoying some relaxing stitching. If you have a blog, please link up your hand stitching project below so we can see what you are working on and cheer you on!

  6. I never considered myself a "cat" person. Recently I adopted two stray kittens who just magically appeared in my chicken coop. I haven't caught them yet. I'd have better luck "petting" the cat you are embroidering. It is sooooo adorable! Can't wait to see what colors you choose. LOVE IT! Keep on stitching. Enjoy and like you said, RELAX. Yes, it is relaxing!
