Slow Sunday Stitching

  Slow stitching.  I find that I am frantically running around the house, on my days off, catching up on housework, laundry, dishes, cooking...you know the drill.

Those quiet moments, when I have something to sew on, by hand...still my brain and heart.  I find myself so much more relaxed, thinking better and more clearly.

Try it?  You will love it!

I am stitching on this circle quilt...it is a scrappy thing that I started last year, and still have many slow stitches to take, to finish it.

"A great journey starts with a single step, " or a fun quilt begins with a single stitch!

I am linking to Kathy's blog, below...so go see what slow stitching other quilters and crafters have going on.

This does look like a fun quilt to applique and stitch on. Good luck with your progress. Yes slow stitching is relaxing and cures what ails ya!!!

I don't remember these blocks. I like the stars and circles. Will make a very nice quilt at some time. Part of the enjoyment is the travel along the way. You get there eventually but have taken time to smell the roses.

Again, more gorgeous applique from you. I enjoy this project each time you take it out to show us your progress. It makes me want to make one too!

I recognize the quilt in your header photo! I made it for my partner in this year's Teal Mini Quilt swap.
