Slow Sunday scrappy stitching!

 Slow stitching.  Funny how I feel a bit guilty about sitting still and just deep breathing and stitching...so I decided not to feel that way!  This little quilt along is via Facebook. 
The mixture of embroidery and tiny 4 inch log cabin blocks is what I am working on today.




What you are stitching on today?

It’s adorable, especially with the whale in the corner.

I love this quilt. My first quilt was a queen-sized log cabin in the same colors. Those log cabin blocks are very tiny. Wow. I have a variation that I am planning on making that has larger blocks, but one inch wide logs. I am a little wary of it.

Great quilt. Enjoy the respite. ;^)

Goodness me, never feel guilty while you are sitting and stitching! You are being calm and creative.

Sitting still and being calm, deep breathing while you hand stitch is a most excellent thing in these troubled times....don't feel guilty. Your little quilt is pretty.

Oooh, I love that little whale! Recharging your batteries is essential for good mental health. Breathe away!

Quiet stitching is good for the soul! It is so good that you make time for it.
This quilt looks like so much fun! I love the whale especially. Those embroidered blocks are going to be sweet. I'll enjoy seeing your progress with this.

Darling quilt with the whale, Julie! We are moving to a new electronic health record this week--in the middle of a pandemic while all of us are working at home alone. It is very stressful and I am finding myself in panic and near tears at times. Deep breaths are definitely happening over that, and the awful unrest and horrible scenes on the news. A very unsettling time.

I just love this design and the whale is adorable

I thought about making the summer log cabin small quilt that you are working on but it is going to have to wait. It is such a cute and creative design.

Cute little project there! I'm not stitching at this time, waiting for elective surgery to open up again so i can have a new hip put in.

I am glad you decided not to feel guilty. We all need down time--especially in high stress situations, and as a nurse you are definitely dealing with higher stress levels than most of us.

Barb said...

You had me at whale - yes no guilt...just breathing and stitching sounds good to me.

Quilter Kathy said...

Absolutely no guilt with relaxation and hand stitching... it's essential service for all humans :) Love the new project!

Too precious, Julie! That whale really gives those log cabin blocks some major personality!
