Welcome to the Slow Sunday Stitching weekly linkup party! If you like to stitch things by hand, you have found your tribe! Each week stitchers from around the world share their projects and slow progress to encourage and inspire us.
I have enjoyed some relaxing hand quilting on my pig mini quilt this week. I am using pink thread to make all my uneven stitches visible and to add another layer of interest to this little piggy quilt. I hope to get the hand quilting done and the binding on to finish this quilt by the end of the June.
Hand stitching is helping all of us to get through the global pandemic... stitch by stitch we work our way through another day, another week, another month. I hope you and your family are staying well and have decreasing number of COVID cases where you live. In Ontario Canada our "emergency orders" have been extended to July 15th but we have the lowest number of new cases (160) reported on Friday since this began in March, so maybe we are close to being free of COVID19... won't that be great?!?
I enjoy learning about people who are discovering hand work while staying safe at home. I enjoyed reading this story about Ariel Bade-Shamai who started hand weaving with materials she had in her home as a way to cope with long days at home during COVID19. You can see her collection here.
What are you hand stitching today? We love to see your projects and hear how you are stitching your way through COVID times, so link up your blog post below and share with us.
