Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party!
Sunday is our day to slow down and rest, to be thankful... and to stitch!

This is the time of year when my creativity is at an all time high. I have lots of ideas for Christmas gifts, and never enough time to make all my brilliant ideas. I have never made bunny pyjamas, but I have made a wide range of gifts over the years.

Today I'm working on a Christmas embroidery design from Gail Pan (free pattern here - thanks Gail!)

Four little designs were finished this week, and only one more to stitch today. I thinking of adding some selvages to turn this into a mug mat gift.

What are you hand stitching today? Are you working on some gifts? Please link up your blog or instagram and inspire us with your slow progress.

I love giving homemade gifts, too! It's like giving a bit of yourself! I will *never* gift anyone pink bunny pjs, though! :)

Thanks so much for link to the free designs. I've made quite a few homemade gifts so far. Still have a few to go. Today I hope to finish up my Buhl-Bushong piece, because Decembers has already come out!

Christmas is only 24 days away - this is what we get with a late Thanksgiving! No wonder people were putting up the tree before Thanksgiving!
Love the Gail Pan blocks!

Housework, laundry,coffee, blogging,coffee,sewing up Bonnie's first mystery!!!!I was up way too early this morning, waiting for daylight to go for my daily walk. Started out in the dark and watched a pretty pink/purple sky light up!!Pretty yes but not a good omen!! Happy stitching!! said...

You really made me laugh with the reference to "A Christmas Story". I always make hand made gifts for Christmas - sometimes my kids love them and sometimes...not so much! This movie is one of our favorites to watch at the holidays. I really love your Gail Pan stitchery and will enjoy seeing it when it's done.
