Slow Stitching....or, "When will this block be done!?"

Today I will need to find time to do some applique-prep. On days like this, with a lack of applique ready to go, I turn to my Life is Beautiful.

This block has been in the hoop since before Christmas....just dragging along, so much so that I really don't like it!

 Even my stitching is not working out so good. I think I've  just got to get it done and carry on with one I can enjoy.

The funny thing this morning is reading that Kathy at Kathy's Quilts is working on the same block and finding it taking a long time to finish, also.

I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching to see what others are poking at today.

I also wanted to share a couple of pictures of little Mina showing off her Shopkins/Batman skirt....she loved it!

....and being photo-bombed by big brother...

.....and trying out the Batman on the reverse....

I'm so glad she liked it!!


  1. As I told Kathy, I love the sentiment on that block. Yours looks very pretty. I really like the reversible skirt idea. I used to make skirts and skorts for my daughter, but I never thought to make them reversible.

  2. Mina is adorable. Don't worry, the stitching will get done sometime. Enjoy it.

  3. It is hard to finish a project that you don't have enthusiasm for. I don't seem to be able to even start a hand project this year!

  4. I often find it bittersweet to work the last block on a large project, you piece looks wonderful and the skirt is just adorable as it the model Mina. Happy Stitching

  5. I like the smart idea of a reversible skirt. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Great job on that skirt!
    So funny that we are both stitching the same block and finding it not that much fun!
    Let's go and get 'er done!

  7. I need to make a skirt like that! I know 2 granddaughters that would love it! Mina is the perfect model! I have so enjoyed watching your embroidery blocks!

  8. I like your embroidery project - your stitching looks fine! Cute little girl.

In general, this is a deformity caused by the deviation or shift of the bone in your large toe where it joins the rest of the bones of the foot.

If your bunions are making walking and every day life a painful struggle, then here are a few things you need to know about how to treat bunions.
