Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party!
For an unknown reason I was forced to use a new format for our link up today. I have no idea if this new coding is going to work or not. I've enjoyed using InLinkz to host our weekly link ups but this new format is not user friendly, so if you have suggestions for another service, please email me or leave me a comment below.
Today I am piecing a quilt block by hand. I joined the Hand Piecing Quiltalong and have finished 5 of the 9 blocks (see my finished blocks here). It is very relaxing and I have enjoyed the blocks I've made so far, but haven't been able to keep up with one a week since I have many hand stitching projects on the go.
I finished the binding on a quilt this past week and that was 197" of hand stitching. Today I'll be back to my hand piecing and hope to finish another block.
What are you hand stitching today?
I hope you will be able to link up your blogpost or instagram below and share your progress with us. If you have any difficulty, please let me know... not that I can help you to solve the problem, but it will help me decide if I need to switch to another service.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  2. I too love the fabrics in this block. It can be difficult to choose a hand stitching project from the many one is working on, isn't it. Thank you for the link up, Kathy, it worked fine.

  3. Beautiful fabric choices for you block. I use Mister Linky for my 15 minutes to stitch linky parties. It's worked well so far, but I've not used there photo linky in many years.

  5. I love the fabrics in that block. I had no trouble with the link-up. I did have to refresh your page in order to see that my link-up was successful, but that certainly isn't hard to do.

  7. Lovely blocks you have hand pieced, it's my preferred way to make a quilt though it does take much longer than sewing by machine.
