The first link up was June 24, 2012 so this weekend we are celebrating 7 years of Slow Sunday Stitching adventures! Over the years I changed link services so we can't see who signed up in the inaugural post, but there were enough link ups to encourage me to continue opportunities for weekly connection with other hand stitchers. My goal was to inspire people to slow down, to take a deep breath, to dedicate precious time to the healing process of hand work, and to connect with other creative like minded stitchers.
|The Hand Stitching Gang|
Thank you so much for reading, for stitching, for encouraging others, for blogging, and for linking up! All of these activities take time and are a commitment to the "slow movement" of mindful living.
And now onto the celebration part... one of the link ups today will win this loot bag:
*some sparkly Wonderfil threads,
*a Quilt Canada journal and pen,
*a package of Black Gold Clover needles which are my favourites for hand stitching at the moment, and
*a charm pack called "Hello my Friend" because everybody loves fabric!
I will draw the winning number from the hand stitching link ups below on Monday night and announce it on Tuesday.
For the celebration today, I invite you to post about your current hand work projects and/or your favourite finishes.
One of my all time favourite finishes is "Journey of a Quilter", which was hand embroidered and hand quilted over a 7 year period.
Okay... your turn....
