Slow Stitching Sunday 11/9/14


I am still house cleaning and winterizing, but I want to join Kathy's Quilts with some slow stitching today.  Maybe I can mix the two as I need to finish up the winterizing with this 'Polar Vortex' coming in.  But I will need to take a breather here and there - so I can sip some Java or Tea and add some stitches.

  
And it may not be handwork, but I would like to get my geese units done, too.  I haven't done much machine sewing all week so maybe a few little units will keep my machine from being lonely.

I will be sure to take a stroll or two outside, too.  My furries would love for me to walk with them - I have terrorized them too many day with the vacumm.

Will you slow down today?

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Can't even think about winter when our temperature is soaring over 86*F as summer approaches!

    Slow but social -- church then a birthday party for a three year old at our former next-door neighbour's home, had a lovely long chat with the new owners of our much loved former home!

    Very little stitching has been happening here -- some machine sewing in a three hour class last Monday and a couple of hours of hand sewing (English paper piecing) at a quilt group meeting on Thursday. Hopefully the lack of sewing will change with WM's return to work tomorrow after annual leave -- presumably a more normal routine will return, at least until Christmas comes! LOL

  5. Would you like to come and do my fall cleaning too? I think all of us are multitaskers ...I always seem to have too much to do and not enough time to do it all. Your redwork looks wonderful...I followed your stitching line from bottom to top! The house project looks great too. Have fun stitching today!

  12. The fairy on the swing is going to be so cute. I am looking forward to watching your progress. The little house block is pretty. I bet your own house looks great too with all that cleaning and winterizing. Getting all that done makes the stitching time that much sweeter.
