Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly link up for hand stitching enthusiasts! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in Canada and I am thankful for so many things, including this international community of enthusiastic and talented hand stitchers! 

Whether you post your projects in the link ups, or you encourage others in their long term, slow stitching endeavours, or you are stitching along quietly on your own hand stitching projects making your corner of the world calmer and more beautiful, we are thankful for YOU!



Today I am slowing stitching away on another one of Gail Pan's embroidery designs. This week I am stitching a sweet owl design using a size 10 Jeana Kimball Foxglove Cottage Embroidery needle... it's my favourite needle for embroidery with a sharp point and an "easy to thread" eye when you are using thicker threads or floss. This owl is almost finished, and I just have the stars, tree branch, and leaves/flowers to finish today. I will do so while I ponder my thankfulness for each one of YOU! And then I will kick into high gear and cook a Thanksgiving dinner!

If you haven't yet entered the draw to win spools of Aurifil thread, click here to go to the "Save the Bees" hexie block pattern and draw. Good luck everyone... the winning name will be drawn tonight!

Link up your blogpost below and tell us what you are hand stitching today.

There sure is always something to be thankful for and I am thankful you do this link up every Sunday. I love to come and check out all the wonderful projects. I have to get back to hand sewing. Can you believe I haven't done one hand stitch all summer?!! Yikes!! Love the new picture in your header and the owl is soooo cute. ;^)

I am thankful for all the quilters who continue to blog, offering inspiration and friendship, especially those who aren't always trying to sell us something. Enjoy your Thanksgiving celebration.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in New Zealand but of course we still have plenty to be thankful for. Beautiful country, with summer almost here, and Christmas just around the corner!

Happy Thanksgiving. I knew yours was a different time than ours, but somehow didn't realize it was this soon. Trying to catch up with blog visits after being gone a couple of weeks. Hope you've got a good day planned for your Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Enjoy your day! Your little owl is really cute. I'm interested in trying that needle; I seem to struggle with finding just the right needle. I'll do a search for that one!

Jill said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and other Canadian bloggers. Thanks for the embroidery needle tip....uh no pun intended. ;-)
