Welcome to the weekly hand stitching link up! We celebrate all types of hand work and enjoy seeing what is being created by hands all around the world...
slow and steady, one small stitch at a time!
Where I live in Ontario, Canada we are in the middle of a cold, dark, and icy winter. Yesterday I tried to buy salt or sand to reduce the risk of slipping on the icy walkways around my house, but I couldn't find it in stores anywhere in my area. They are sold out! UGH! So I came inside and got out this hand stitching project which is helping to get me through the winter. Are you sewing along with the hand stitching quiltalong at Elm Street Quilts?
|Block #3 of the Hand Stitching Quiltalong|
You can hop over to the block #3 link up here and see the 60+ versions of this block that hand piecers have made!
Here are my first 3 hand stitched blocks in the project. We started with simple squares at the top block, progressed to triangles in the block on the right, and the last block was flying geese on the left. I am loving these Clover black gold needles for hand piecing. And I am delighted with how this block came together while I visited with my sister-in-law yesterday. She talked, I listened and stitched, and we survived another February day!
So ... what are you hand stitching to get you through the long winter days? Link up your blog post below about your project and share your hand work with us.
