Welcome to Slow Sunday Stitching! We meet here every Sunday to celebrate the art of all varieties of hand stitching. If it involves a needle or 2, and thread, and stitches taken with your hands, we want to know about it!
This week I finished my word (plus one flower!) meditation embroidery. Thank you to Joy for the pattern! And thank you for your feedback last week about mixing Valdani threads with DMC floss. As I look over the stitching here, I really like the Valdani lines more. I'll still use the floss because I have a ton of it, but I have to admit that Valdani really is a treat to stitch with so I think I'll add to my colour choices over time.
The next step for this project is to add the border fabric and get quilting. I plan to hand quilt a crosshatch grid and hope the stitches provide some texture without distraction from the words.
In other hand stitching news, my local yarn store ordered some blue yarn so I could finish a cloth I was knitting and when I went to pick it up, I saw this friendly sign. I loved the kindness of it... "we'll tow your car, but we're awfully sorry and there are no hard feelings". LOL
I hope you will be enjoying some hand stitching time today. Link up your blog or instagram post and share your projects with us.
