Slow Stitching Sunday


It is a cold, rainy, sleet, snow mix day.  Perfect for a sit and stitch day with Kathy's Quilts.  I am washing backing fabrics so I can do some sandwich basting, too.


I plan on working on this new cross stitch piece.   Someone gave me a couple of these store front patterns torn from 'The Cross Stitcher - 1994'.

I haven't framed the large 'Apples for Sale' piece yet, but I did get my three small ones done.





So pull up a chair and slow down,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  6. Long bad weather winter and early spring certainly has helped us all with our stitching progress. I remember those cross stitch storefronts. Love your antiques barn.

  15. Sharon I love your framed cross stitch pieces. A few years ago I bought one I found at a junk store for $1 and it became one of my treasured small quilts after I framed it. I use it as a table topper in my living room. blessings, marlene

  21. There are a lot of stitching crafts that I enjoy, but counted cross stitch is not one of them. I think that's why I enjoy seeing your projects so much. I really love the kitty. I'm sure one of your furry friends could have posed for that one.
