Slow Sunday Stitching


Welcome to the weekly linky party where we celebrate the art of hand stitching!

I am working on my hand embroidery project that is well into it's second year of production. I took this hilarious photo while working on a block at the beach. You know how your eyes see a certain view and you take a photo that is nothing like what you had envisioned?!? I was stitching a sailboat at the beach, when I spotted a sailboat on the lake. 

I thought wouldn't that be a cool photo to have an actual boat and a stitched boat in the same shot?!?! 
It sure would be! 
Can you see the boat on the horizon just to the right of the pink hoop? 
You can't?!?! 
Of course not, because it's microscopic.

A+ for effort and F for the end product! LOLOL

I am stitching these embroidery designs on the edge trimmed from the muslin backing of the "Red Repro Broken Dishes" quilt. 
Here's the finished boat block. I stitched a "K" on the mast flag just for fun.

Remember that the 7th birthday party of Slow Sunday Stitching is coming up on June 23rd, so make sure you put that on your virtual calendar! It won't be an in person event, but that is my dream to one day host a Slow Sunday Stitching retreat day.
Link up your blog post below and share the hand stitching project you are working on.

  1. I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong. Up until last week, I used to get a button to add my link to the list. Not any more.

  4. I too, quite often take a photo of what I see with my eyes and it never looks as good in the photo. Your little sailboat is cute.

  5. I appreciate that you made the effort to take the sailboat photo! That happens to me all the time. We see so many cool things on our travels, but they are too far away to capture in a photo. Oh well! :)

  6. You do get an A+ for effort! I've done that many times, too. It's so frustrating when your eyes see this great photo, but the camera doesn't see it at all! Enjoy your Sunday stitching, Kathy!

  9. I know what you mean with photos. I always forget that what I can see the camera often misses. Love the little sail boat.

  11. I just realized that you changed the picture at the top of this page. Very nice. Wish I knew how to do that.

  12. No slow stitching to share this week, so I'll just settle back with my cuppa and read the blogs from your talented followers.
