Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! It's time to put your feet up, relax, and put some stitches into your favourite project. Just breathe and stitch, even if just for a few moments.

I finished and gifted my knitted guitar face/dish cloth. The pattern is from Knitwits. I love the ease of ordering their patterns and the easy to follow instructions (no affiliation, just a happy customer). And they make such a perfect little gift to let family and friends know (especially during our 3rd Covid lockdown) that you are thinking of them.

Ontario Covid Restrictions May 2021

I will be attending my first zoom wedding today when my niece will be marrying her best friend. They have waited a long time to get married and finally just decided to take the plunge since covid is not going away here any time soon. 
They are restricted to 10 people at this event, which just allows the wedding party to attend, so the family will be "attending" online. This is how we do things now. 

My friend Debby made these face masks for the bride and groom... so cute! 

This week I finished 220" of hand binding on my Sister's Scrap Challenge quilt and that was very relaxing.

What are you hand stitching today?

The dishcloth is lovely, a zoom wedding seems very strange but I suppose there is no choice, I hope you enjoy it.

How strange life has become to think that we now attend weddings via zoom; but it is the new normal, isn't it. Those masks are sweet and cute guitar on the dishcloth. Fill your champagne flute, raise it to the happy couple and enjoy!

It is so sad that you are unable to attend your neice's wedding, but at better safe than attending a funeral in the future. Enjoy the new way of celebrating. I am prayin that the situation stays steady here un the US so that we can celebrate my son's wedding in person next April. Love the face/dish cloth.

Life is strange, but it is as normal as possible under the circumstances imposed by Pandemic.
Best wishes to the couple!
The musical dish cloth looks cute.
Happy slow stitching, Kathy!

You do such a great job with those dish cloths, Kathy. And all that binding too. Yes, I would agree the happy couple should just go ahead with their wedding. No way of knowing when this will end for us here in Ontario.

Glad you were able to finish up the binding on your scrap quilt and the fun dishcloth, too! I hope you enjoy the wedding - at least there is Zoom for that. I'd never heard of it before Covid. Now we all use it!

Super dishcloth with that guitar knitted right in there!!
A zoom wedding--how life has changed for sure...stay safe and enjoy your slow stitching this Sunday...rainy, raw, and windy here -- not at all like Spring--even the weather has changed...hugs anyway--Julierose

As most of the US reopens and parties away, it must be very frustrating to Canadians to look on and wonder when such freedom will come. Hopefully your niece can schedule a celebration later for all to attend. So now that the Sisters quilt is done what will you tackle next?

I haven't attended a Zoom wedding yet, just a You Tube graduation for my grandson Friday night. Great washcloth. My husband would have loved that!

We attended a zoom wedding las t November...I am making the Love Birds cross stitch picture for their wedding gift. I’m thankful for zoom and other technologies which still allow us to be there for these special milestones. Neat guitar facecloth! I have not done any knitting lately. I need to get back at it! Very cute bride and groom masks!

We attended 2 Zoom weddings back last March (2020) when our nephew and our niece both got married within weeks of each other. This has been a difficult time for couples. We get to attend an in person wedding later this month (outside).

What a fun dishcloth! Love those musical notes! Pretty backing fabric as well!
