Slow Stitching Sunday 12/14/14

Slow Sunday Stitching

I will be joining  Kathy for another lovely day of slowing down.  I have a couple of projects to enjoy and I hope a little bit of good weather will allow for a bit of a walk outside - even if it is only the sidewalks (our drive gets horribly icy).

  
The Button Tree is getting closer to a finish, but I am in no rush.  I am thinking the stitching will take to the end of the month and then this can go on the Jan 2015 list of to-be-finished.


The same with the Welcome cross stitch.  A project I want to enjoy, not rush.  I can see this being rolled over into January's slow Sundays.

I have been enjoying a much slower month.  Hand work has been very relaxing.  When I hear my machine crying (doesn't yours?) from neglect I work a few blocks.  I know there is a tote of quilts to be quilted, but they can wait - not this month.

I may even break down and play some holiday music today - sometimes I find it annoying, but today it might be the thing I need.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. I'm still working on the very slow barn quilt embroideries I started over a year ago! It will get done sooner or later! Love the button tree.

  8. I did not know about Slow Sunday Stitching but I have been doing some of that and it has been wonderful. I know that my machine is waiting for a little action and I have BOM blocks to complete but the stitching has been so relaxing. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  11. Looks like you are all set for slow stitching for some time to come Sharon :) Enjoy! That cross-stitch is working up very lovely. I played some Christmas music the other night when we put up the tree, and there are songs that I really enjoy and listen to all season long. But when Christmas is over, I'm definitely ready to put them away for another year!

  16. Looking good!

    My slow-down-Sunday involved lunch with friends,some television with WM and doing part of a jigsaw on my iPad. Not a stitch in sight!

  17. It looks as though you are extremely talented with hand stitching! Could you send some cold weather, and snow or ice back this way? The warmer temps here is wreaking havoc on my Christmas spirit!
