Welcome to Slow Sunday Stitching where we celebrate the wonderful world of hand stitching. Take a big deep breath, pick up your needle and threads, and enjoy some relaxing moments today.
|The 1st Life Is Beautiful block|
A big thank you to everyone who offered ideas and creative solutions to my scissors question last Sunday. I was fascinated by the comments and feedback. My plan is to borrow some applique scissors from a quilty friend so I can give them a test run before I make a decision. In the meantime, I will plod along carefully, in typical slow sunday stitching style using my regular scissors.
On Friday night some quilting friends came over to sew and my friend Sandy brought some of her Life is Beautiful blocks to show us. It is so fun to be working on this hand embroidery project at the same time together. I am using variegated red thread and Sandy is using variegated blue. Here are our blocks together on the design wall.
Won't it be fun to have sister quilts that are similar and yet completely different?
Today I will be finishing the binding on a quilt while complaining about the end of Downton Abbey. It has been my practice to curl up with hand stitching every Sunday night and watch the adventures of the Crawley family household. I am embarrassed to admit how much I miss them already.
What are you hand stitching today? We would love to see your slow progress and hope you will link up your blog post below.
