This week marks the 9th anniversary of Slow Sunday Stitching adventures! The inaugural link up was June 24th, 2012. I can't even believe that much time has passed! My original goal in creating this link up was to inspire people to slow down, to take a deep breath, to dedicate precious time to the healing process of hand work, and to connect with other creative like-minded stitchers.

This week I finished knitting a #1 Dad facecloth just in time for Father's Day. It is a Knitwits pattern and was easy to make (except for when you miscalculate and miss a row!) Thankfully I was able to fix my mistake and finish the cloth in time to go in the gift bag today.
And I put some stitches into my Kawandi quilt that was started in a class with Sujata Shah from the Root Connection. She was offering a summer class on how to make a Kawandi, but it filled up before I could get this posted! She is a great teacher!
My progress is slow, and sporadic, but I do love the slow mediative hand stitching. I really enjoy stitching with perle cotton and don't even mind when my stitches are not even, or following a straight line. Life is way too short for perfection!
What are you hand stitching today? Are you making slow, imperfect progress? We invite you to link up your blog post below and share your project with us.
