Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! 

Last week there were so many amazing projects to enjoy in the link ups, and I just want to acknowledge how amazing it is that this link party has been going for 7 years this month!  We will have a big birthday party later in the month, so stay tuned for the details on that. I'm so happy that the art of hand stitching is alive and well, and that YOU are a part of keeping it going. For all the times you linked up to share your project, and visited other bloggers, and left encouraging comments... THANK YOU!
As always, I encourage you today to take a deep breath, and spend some time indulging yourself with your needles and beautiful threads. 
I finished a quilt this week which included hand stitching about 300" of binding. It's my favourite relaxing hand stitching. You can see this is the pretty navy floral backing for this quilt. You can see the finished quilt here.


I also made progress on my embroidery project this week finishing this cute tree block with some flowers and a heart. There were a few lazy daisy stitches on this block and I enjoyed making them as a break from all the back stitching.
This is a block from Gail Pan's 2018 "I Stitch Club". This year's club features Christmas blocks, but I am being very disciplined and committed to finishing last year's project before I start another one. 
What a novel concept!


What are you working on? We love to see what you are stitching with your own 2 hands, without the assistance of any machines.

  2. Kathy, is there a new procedure for adding links to the party? The usual button seems to be missing (at least on my end).

  3. Your stitches are so even! I don't do enough emboridery to stay practiced and it shows, especially in those back stitches. Happy slow stitching today. And congrats on 7 years of slow stitching Sundays. Has it really been that long?

  5. Well Happy 7 Years and many more to come, so glad I have been a part of it. Even on Sundays when I don't have anything new myself to post I enjoy a cup of tea or coffee first thing and read what everyone is posting and making.

  9. Even though I don't blog and my hand stitching is mostly just sewing down binding, I really enjoy the weekly round-up. Congratulations on nearing 7 years.

  13. Thank you for hosting this, my favourite linky party. I hadn't found your blog way back when you started but I am so pleased I have now made your acquaintance. I'm sure your slow stitching link up each week spurs us all on to get some hand stitching done.
