I don’t make New Years Resolutions… but if I did I think this year’s would be to try to be slow stitching something each Sunday and link to Kathy’s Quilts blog… HERE is the link to her party TODAY!!!
I rewarded myself for getting my new calendar all caught up for this year with what activities are already set in stone by writing this post just for linking up with Kathy!!
I love the header to start out January… this motto got me through a rough year in the past. I have followed Suzy Toronto for some time and hope she continues to put out high quality calendars like this as this is MY style for sure!
I finished this flimsy last weekend… thus no slow stitching to share for Kathy’s last years post…
this wall hanging won’t be used til August or September …but since I had nothing else close to a finish to start quilting I chose this to finish and quilt and check out the slow stitches I am doing in the alternate blocks…
And ended with this thread fashioned shape…
I love how it turned out… in the first shot you can see all the shapes I am stitching in the alternate blocks! 🙂 I marked them all with graphite (pencil) and am stitching with YLI 40/3 in black 🙂
Here is a cute embroidery pattern I am pondering for my next quilt to start piecing… it will be called Friendship Journey and is supposed to finish 50 x 50″
Finally I want to share some back yard fun we had a couple days ago.. when the weather was nice 🙂
Tanisha (my daughters friend since preschool ) has been visiting from Tennessee… and it was HAMMocK weather!!!!
Daisy even joined in the fun… and handed out some kisses along the way too!
Fun times for sure! Tanisha goes home today sadly…
How about you are you taking any slow stitches today??
Until my next post please remember Life if Precious … handle with care &
