Happy Slow Sunday Stitching!
It's time to pick up your hand stitching project and put in some stitches. You will immediately notice the health benefits of breathing more slowly, clearing your mind to focus on a simple task, and feeling more relaxed as you enjoy creating more stitches in a project that you have chosen. Even if you just put in a few stitches, you will benefit, and your project will be closer to completion.
I have also been putting more stitches into my Kawandi. It has all the fall colours so I feel drawn to work on it. However, I do get discouraged seeing the wide variation in the size of my stitches. I like using coloured threads but it does make my uneven stitches really noticeable. Oh well, I will just keep on stitching!

I just know you are breathing slowly, breathing more, as you bind the quilt. =) If it was me....not so. =) The fabric colours in your Kawandi are so lovely. There is nowhere to hide with coloured thread, but I rather love perfectly imperfect stitches. How sweet is the little Fall stitchery hanging among the fall leaves. Yes indeed, the little blue bird is adorable.
Stitching the binding is great, a quilt is almost done and this makes us happy. I love your Fall embroidery hanging in your Mapple tree. So cute.
Looks like you have managed to find a bit of sewing time amid the busy-ness of your week. Fall is so cute! Hooray for binding the October placemat! Your beautiful Kawandi stitches are adding personality to your project!
I'm going to follow your advice, put my feet up, stitch and relax. That is a cute autumn wall hanging. I rather like the look of your kawandi stitches and the colours are gorgeous. Have a nice day!
I'm working on binding today too, my Autumn Jubilee quilt along finishes this week and I have to get that done!
Stitching binding is so relaxing. Don't stress about the stitch sizes, just enjoy the process. Your fall embroidery is quite sweet. Enjoy your stitching and thanks, once again, for hosting Slow Sunday Stitching.
Your Fall embroidery turned out just great! Enjoy stitching that binding today, too. I'll look forward to seeing your placemat next weekend!
Lovely little fall hanging and so good to have a finish too. I'm glad you showed the Kawandi piece...have seen several such around the net and am very interested in the technique. Have you had a little summer in autumn down your way?
I love the colours in your Kawandi piece. It looks great!
I really like the Fall embroidery, thanks for sharing the link...I'm already downloaded it. Your Kawandi is coming along. You may have different sizes of stitches...but it's made with love, so it won't matter is there are a few crooked stitches. Have a great day!
Loving the Fall embroidery and those colors of the Kawandi, I have the breathe More fabric somewhere in my stash.
Lovely finish on the Fall embroidery. I downloaded the pattern but have not gotten around to it yet.
Kathy...I love your little fall embroidery. AND try not to be discouraged with your stitches on your Kawandi....they look great and add to the charm of it!! My Kawandi has different size stitches and some lines not so straight and it changes each time I work on it and I am OK with that and embrace having it perfectly imperfect!!
Hand stitching is as individual as the stitcher. Only you will notice the stitches you don't like. Enjoy.
