Slow Sunday Stitching



Welcome to Slow Sunday Stitching where we celebrate the art of creating things with our hands. 
Any hand stitching activity is welcome here :)



I did some hand stitching yesterday to finish up my April placemat challenge (you can read about it here). Isn't that a pretty backing fabric?


This week I also put a few more stitches into the Kawandi I started last fall in a class with Sujata Shah. I am enjoying hand stitching with the perle cotton threads. Soon I will need to review my class notes to figure out how to finish the centre. Today I will work on adding the 3rd round of scraps.

What are you hand stitching today? We hope you will link up your blog post below and show us what you are working on.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

The blue fabrics in your placemat are so pretty. The backing fabric is a lovely fit. It's nice to see your Kawandi project again; such bright and happy colours. I love the 'go-with-the-flow' aesthetic of this piece.

I love the colours in your kawandi piece! And hand stitching really suits the piece.

Yeah, the background fabric is just beautiful and matches so well with your beautiful placemat for the month. I am in love with your Kawandi piece someday I want to try this technique. Have a great slow stitching day.

I so want to try my hand at Kawandi but I need to finish up some other projects first. I am loving watching your progress.
