Happy Slow Sunday Stitching and Happy Mother's Day to all who "mother"! Kris from Scrapdash wrote in her newsletter: "Whether your baby is two-footed, four-footed, feathered, finned, or quilted, today is your day".
I have been mothering my Granddog this weekend and he loves to go for car rides (unless it is driving to the vet!) He sticks his head out the window as far as he can reach to get all the good smells.
I finally finished my 1991 cross stitch! Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to finish it - I'm so glad I took your advice!
I took this photo in the early morning sunlight with some spring tulips. The photo looked better in my mind's eye than in real life.
I gifted the pillow to my Mom when it wasn't quite finished - you can see the clips across the bottom. I don't have the hand strength at the moment to do that kind of stitching, so my friend Debby actually stitched it closed for me. The stitched words across the bottom say "The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as Kings" (a quote from Robert Louis Stevenson)
We should be happy, but I was quite cross this week about a glitch (aka mistake) on my spring cross stitch. My sister so patiently fixed for me. That's right - the dreaded ripping out of stitches. I can't bear it... but thankfully she enjoys unstitching - for others. This project is going into time out for a bit until I build my confidence to work on it again (hopefully not 30 years!)
I did make some progress on my Spring embroidery from Days Filled With Joy. These little adorable bumgoots filled with flowers are step #2. The next block to stitch are seed packets, so I hope to work on those today.
What are you hand stitching today? I hope you will link up your photo, instagram or blog post below and share your project with us.
