Slow Sunday Stitching 10/30/16

Slow Sunday Stitching

I spent Saturday with the grandkids baking cookies, painting, glueing, sticker play, and general business.  Ill be joining in with KATHY for a wonderful day of slow stitching to catch my breath.


This is my second batch of Santas (pattern under my tutorial tab) and I want to finish up stitching down the hats and adding the hangers.  These work up so quickly and use up scraps of fabric.  Great for gifts, tie on a package or plate of cookies, or drape over a bottle of wine.


And I want to get started on hand stitching my flower baskets.  The long pins are temporary until I put the applique pins in on the underside.


Maybe I will even get two of them done.  I don't think they will take that long to do.  I am getting anxious to start the patchwork piecing, but don't want to start that until I have all the basket blocks ready.  Better get stitchin'!!

Enjoy some slow time today,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. The Santas are adorable and thanks for giving us the tutorial and telling us where it is. I love the hexies and basket. Great Sunday project.
    Yesterday was Trunk or Treat at my church and the church where I tutor/mentor. One of my best friends who got me to tutor this year and I took my granddaughter to my church and walked with a 3 year old for over 2 hours. Then we went to her house and played cards with friends while my granddaughter watched Mickey Mouse Club. Then we went to the other church for just a short time. When I took her home, she just thanked and thanked me as it was 2 years ago yesterday that her husband died and she hadn't even thought about it when HIS family started texting her. Blessings to you.
