Welcome to Slow Sunday Stitching where we celebrate all the wonderful benefits of the art of hand stitching! I am so glad you can join us this week and I have some photos to share of an outdoor visit I had with some quilting friends this past week. It was a sunny day, we had a lovely visit, and they brought some hand stitching with them.
We had a quilt being bound by hand. It is so close to being a finished project to be enjoyed at Christmas time.
I was doing some embroidery on a tea towel, and I somehow accidentally snipped the green thread in the letter 'e', so I have to go back and fix that.
We had a hand piecer working on the Border Creek 2021 sew along. She's making the whole quilt by hand!
And we had a bag of hand pieced blocks that one of the stitchers brought to show us. They belong to her neighbour who found them in her mother's belongs after she had died. The neighbour wants someone to finish the quilt for her. Should I volunteer?
We spread the pretty blocks out on the patio table and we all fell in love with these pretty 6 pointed stars. If I tell you that they are all slightly different sizes, likely made over several years, and varying about 1/2" in size from side to side, do you think I should try to tackle putting these together? I want to simply because of the story that goes with it, but will it be stressful? Impossible? A regretful decision? I would love to hear your thoughts on this dilemma.
Today I'll be working on my embroidery again. What are you hand stitching this week? Please link up your post below and share your projects with us.
