Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly celebration of hand stitching! It's the one time a week when we make sure to set aside some special moments for playing with needles and thread/yarn. We hope you will join us!

I have been doing a lot of waiting recently, and I always have my hand stitching bag close by. I got a kick out of stitching in the Tim Horton's line, while I waited 15 minutes for a coffee. It was ridiculously slow, but I enjoyed the serenity of a stitching break, and I almost finished the word "cannot". I accept that I cannot change the slowness of Tim Hortons! LOL Over the pandemic we lost 2 coffee shops in town, and now that people are out and about more, there are longer line ups.

A bit more progress has been made since the Tim Horton's visit, and more stitching will be done today. I look forward to seeing the progress you have made on your projects this week.

I thank you for participating in the Slow Sunday Stitching community!  I just love reading the blog posts on our weekly link up!  Last week I read so many interesting stories - about collection of walnut shells (for filling our pincushions), how to alter skating costumes, and how to hand quilt on a 3 roller frame. Although I don't often get to visit all the links, I do visit as many at time allows.
Below is the link to enter your blog post and share your hand stitching projects with us.

The pandemic has made a lot of changes in businesses. It's great you make use of your hand embroidery all the time. Thanks for providing this link up every Sunday, happy stitching!

I don't think I would ever pick up my stitching in a fast food line, but 15 minutes for coffee is not fast. Your stitching is looking great. Thank you for hosting this link-up.

That is the perfect saying for a time when you have to wait! Enjoy your stitching time today, Kathy!

The quilt show is done, so now I can get back to doing some of my own projects! No slow stitching in progress yet, but will see what is to-be-done.

Glad you are a smart girl, Kathy and have something for stitching during the waiting time for the coffee.
Happy stitching

Excellent idea to have a project on hand for such times when one has to wait in a lengthy car line. Similar situations are occurring here. Lol on the word being cannot. Love TH’s Iced Capps.

Great idea to have a project in the car while waiting. I usually play Words with Friends while waiting, but the waits aren't generally too long. I too love seeing what everyone is doing each week, I missed it the two weeks I was gone.

I like the idea of embroidering the Serenity prayer. It would be good to meditate on it as one stitches it.

Slow Stitching is a great choice while waiting! 15 mins is a long time to wait for a drink. Hope you have a great stitching week!

Oh yes, I seeing more lines at our local coffee shop as well. Good idea to have stitching on hand! Thank you for hosting such a beautifully inspiring and healing link up!

The Serenity Prayer was the perfect thing to be stitching while you waited, huh? I brought stitching into the doctor's office this morning, thinking I'd for sure have a lot of time, but I didn't even have a chance to pull it out! :)

So much for me posting every week. Outdoor work has kept me busy. I didn't go anywhere this long weekend so today Belle and I went fishing with some family members. Did a little remembering, Ted loved to fish.
