Slow Stitching Sunday - August 12th

Kathy, of Kathy's Quilts, has been hosting Slow Stitching Sundays to highlight handwork projects.  I don't do as much hand work as I used to, but since last week was spent relaxing in a lake cabin, I had some time to spend with an embroidery hoop in my hands. 



The pattern is called Floral Scallop.  This is block 2 of 6.  In my case, this project is definitely a slow stitching project.

Progress was also made on my long term hexy project.  This is



block number 13 of a Grandmother Flowers Garden quilt.  It's probably time to lay out all the blocks and decide how many more are needed. 

It was nice having time to just sit and stitch in the mornings.  With all the running we do during the year with Drama Teen's schedule, it was really nice to swim a little, hike a little and spend a little time with family.

  2. Glad you found a reason to relax and enjoy some handwork. Long term projects are a nice way to slow down and enjoy the process.

  4. Get yourself a sew line glue stick (do you have sew line in the US) and glue those hexagons instead of tacking will cut down about 75% of your time. Check out Sue Daley (quilting with busy fingers website for more info on this method).
