Slow Stitching Sunday


Life is Beautiful block #8


It is the Victoria Day weekend here so we have a nice 3 day weekend to relax. Some years we have gone camping, but this year there is too much to do at home. This weekend will be full of yard work and garden prep.
And some hand stitching of course! During Friday Night Sew In I finished the embroidery on block #8 of Life is Beautiful this week. 



And then I started the next block right away!  I will be putting some stitches in this bee while sitting outside today. I will look for some real bees and put out some flowers for them to enjoy.
What are you stitching today? Link up your blog post below and share your hand stitching with us.

Your blocks are gorgeous. Stitching outside is so delightful, isn't it? I plan to spend my morning and afternoon doing much of that myself. ;-)

Are those tiny wings on that big bee? Defies science, I'm sure! *LOL*
Enjoy your garden--I'm enjoying the weeds growing in mine right now. Need to get out and conquer them eventually. : )
