Slow Sunday Stitching

Slow Sunday Stitching

It's been a while since I joined Kathy with some slow stitching.  Being it is the last Sunday of the month as well as the last Sunday of the year - I best be joining in today.


Remember I found these?  With all of the machines put away, projects wrapped up for the year, inventory being done, and starting to list 2016 projects - these found projects will make for some much needed slow down time.


I finished this little one up over the last couple of days.  It only needed a little of the outer border done and the red in the house.  I have a heart template made from card stock to make a scrappy heart that I will needleturn applique' into that empty space.  After a good cleaning, this one will be ready for framing.  I actually have a nice wood frame that this will fit into.


So I am concentrating on this one from that 'Calendar' project booklet.  I know why this one sat - 8 colors missing.  You would think with all the floss boxes and tins I have, I would have them - NO.  But I will work this one up as much as possible for now.  I need to shop for floss, but will wait to see what is missing on the other project so I have a complete list.

It's been a hectic few days with the Holiday, why not join in with a little slow down.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. Sometimes it feels really good to finish a long standing project. I love both of those. Too bad about the missing floss. Go shopping and finish that wonderful picture. Amazing. How do you clean your stitchery? I have one that needs a good washing but I am afraid of ruining it.
