Slow Sunday Stitching 12/4/16

Slow Sunday Stitching

It's going to be another cold, windy, gray, snowy day here in the NorEast - so a good day to stay indoors with some relaxing handwork.  I will join KATHY today with some 'needle-pulling-thread'  and soup simmering in the crockpot.


My main project will be the binding on the BEAR quilt.  Since brown gets a little boring after a bit, I will mix it up.


I managed to get the flower pots stitched yesterday.  Today's goal is the stems.  If I get to the flowers - bonus.


And at least one more flower finished on the Gail Pan stitchery.  The thread spools on this piece I plan to make applique, so I might get those fabric bits prepped , too.

So 2 or 3 brown thread lengths, change to some green, some blue, then back to brown.  It may all work out.

Hope you enjoy a slow day,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Sounds like a perfect, relaxing, stitchy day! What kind of soup? I had a fantastic squash & veg soup at a party yesterday. How's your mom?

  2. That sounds like a lovely day curled up sewing, surrounded with cats and smelling that soup cooking.

  7. It's "Slow Stitchin" day but you've already done a lot! Sunny and cold here in The District but no snow.

  8. Cute little stitcheries. We have snow in the forecast here today. Still 38 degrees last time I checked, so we'll see if it pans out. I'd be okay with a little snow.
