Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party!

It's the last Sunday before Christmas so I know all you hand stitchers are busy finishing gifts and wrapping up gifts. 

When I was visiting last week's blog link ups I was overwhelmed with happiness to see the names of stitchers from the Slow Sunday Stitching gang leaving so many kind, supportive and encouraging comments for other slow stitchers. This is exactly what I had hoped for in creating the weekly hand stitching party on my blog - you are just the best and I'm so thankful to have found you! 

I have 3 items to finish in the next week. I'm not very worried about it as I am quite accustomed to giving half finished projects as gifts!! 
(You can get this great stitchery pattern at Snarky Crafter Designs.)

I am still knitting a Christmas face/dish cloth for a special gift. It's a very happy Christmas red and I hope the colour doesn't bleed when used. We'll know soon enough! 

And I'm starting the binding on a Christmas gift for my kids. I'm very excited to be in the home stretch and will blog about this project later in the week. 

But today... it's relaxation, hand stitching, and maybe a nap! What are you hand stitching today?

I am still working on a few gifts too. We are in the home stretch now! I finished a big project on Friday. All will be revealed next weekend, after the gifts have been given. Merry Christmas, Kathy!

I've knitted a dishcloth using the red/green Lily thread, it didn't bleed when used. Thank you for the wonderful Sunday link up you provide every week. Happy stitching!

Thank you so much for hosting Slow Stitching each week. I enjoy visiting other blogs and getting their support when I need it. I am happy to say that I have no Christmas gifts to finish, but that is because I didn't make any this year. Maybe next year. Looking forward to seeing that gift for your kids.

it is always nice to stop by and see whatever one is working. I hope you get your projects done and don't stress out - Have a great Christmas hard to even realize how fast it is getting here and how even though it has been a bit of an awful year it has flown by for me

Sounds like a perfect day to me relaxing, stitching and napping! Just have to add cake in there somewhere though! Have a great day.

Thanks for hosting this link party, Kathy. It is the best! I join a number of link parties but can always count on the stitchers here to be wonderfully supportive. Merry Christmas!

And another week goes by with my slow stitching project still not started. It is in a basket next to my chair, so I really have no excuse. I think I must not be completely happy with my floss color choices, so will revisit that.

Thanks so much for hosting the link-up, Kathy! It's a special gift every Sunday. Have a wonderful Christmas!

This is the perfect weather for hand stitching in front of the tv while watching a Christmas movie.

That stitchery about 30 unfinished projects is quite appropriate for me this week, as I have found so many new patterns I want to make. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Vivian said...

No gifts this year, the holiday crush for me is all about holiday decorating. Now if I can just find the right tree! Hmmm, you're going to temp me take up cross stitch with that little piece there!

thank you for hosting us every week! And happy holidays to you and yours.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Slow stitching Sundays have really been fun to look forward too--though I haven't always done a photo to share!!
and I have had cotton yarn for dishcloths in red run--until it gets good and rinsed out--then it stopped and was ok to use--so test some of the leftover yarn and see what it tells you!!!
Merry Christmas--luv and hugs, di

I have 7-8 items to finish for Christmas, but I am not worried, 5 of them are pillowcases for the grandkids and may take an hour. Happy Holidays!

Cathy said...

I decided at the last minute to see if I could get at least one pair of mitts done for a gift.Lots of relaxing knitting time ahead.

Kim said...

It is always lovely to visit here on Sundays to see what you and the other lovely stitchers are working on. I always find my visits filled with inspiration and encouragement. Enjoy your stitching. As always your fingers are working to the bone. =)I hope you are able to finish them. May your Christmas be a lovely one.

Hi, Kathy. I just found your blog this weekend and have been pouring over all of the lovely posts and visiting other quilters on your Slow Stitching Sunday. What a delight. I decided to link up which is a first for me since I am a new blogger. I look forward to reading through your previous posts and your future posts. Thank you so much for hosting Slow Stitching Sunday. Have a blessed week and a Merry Christmas.
Happy Quilting, Melisa

Hi Kathy, I'm looking forward to watching the original Grinch movie this week before Christmas. Thank goodness I have no Christmas presents to make but I'm very busy sewing up my son's quilt top. Since it's been years in the making and he's now moved out and his room is my studio, I need to get a move on! It's my December OMG so hopefully the quilt top will be ready to start quilting in the new year. Have a great Christmas and thanks for hosting. Take care.

I admire anyone that makes Christmas gifts, it stresses me out so badly, I stopped that practice long ago. Hope you got your nap in along with lots of stitching time last Sunday.
