Slow Stitcthing Sunday - October 7th

I really had planned on doing a bit more slow stitching than actually happened this week.  I did work a bit on the Embroidered Medallion Quilt piece this week, but not enough to show up as real progress in a picture.  Work stuff, prep for DT's school Fun Night and a broken washing machine had a lot of influence over my schedule this week.  It's been years since I've had to use a laundromat.  In that time frame, the cost to wash a load has doubled!  I hope it's that long again before I have to resort to loading the laundry up in the car, driving across town, and hauling it out of the car into the building.  

I did spend a few minutes yesterday working on the binding for the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt

I didn't get far, but every little bit is progress. 

That's it on the hand stitching front.  What free time I had this week, was spent on the sewing machine.  I do plan to spend one night a week on just hand stitching, but the schedule hasn't been real conductive to that as yet.

Hope you get more time this week for some relaxing hand stitching. It's a huge challenge when the washing machine is broken...been there and hated that!
Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching :)

Binding by hand is my favorite part : quilt is finished & ready to use :)
