Sunday Stitching

 We've had such blustery weather this week here in Southern Ontario...nice weather for catching up on some slow stitching (although, do I need an excuse???).

Today is much brighter, but very cold...not a bad day to get outside for some exercise except for the fact that all my joints are achey this another fine excuse to get some slow stitching done!

I've been poking away at my A Curious Journey BOM. This is a mystery sewalong, but I thought I'd put everything up on the design wall to see how it's looking. I have no idea yet how the blocks will go together, other than the fact that the four large blocks are sewn together.

I was working on these blocks this morning, many of the blocks have a bit of embroidery with perle cotton...

There are also 25 Windswept blocks to add to the mix...

....and I have quite a few of the 6" blocks still to do. Hmmm....maybe a bit of prep-work is in order for the day!

Again I've had my Auntie Green's Garden out to evaluate...

Even though it's been in the time-out pile for a couple of years, I still love it! This quilt will be my main focus after A Curious Journey comes to an end.

This was the first week of the Boho Heart Quilt Sewalong. I did manage to get this week's blocks done and I really like how they turned out. I'm determined to keep up with this and not let it fall by the wayside (famous last words!).

I am linking up, as usual on Sundays!, with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. Enjoy your day!


  1. Such beautiful blocks on your design wall today! The boho heart is spectacular! When all of this COVID stuff is over, we need to get together to sew.

  2. Oh wow, such exquisite applique to be seen here. Your Curious Journey is beautiful and as for Auntie Green's still my beating heart. Truly, you are the Queen of Applique! Love those bright and happy Boho Hearts, too. Such a joy to visit your fabulous place today, where it seems much beauty lives.

  3. That boho quilt is going to be a fun one. Love the happy colors. You have beautiful projects in the works.

  4. I like Auntie Green (have the pattern) and A Curious Journey - would love to make that BOM...
    Have a great week!

  5. You've been busy! I still love the Auntie Green pattern and I suspect that you will enjoy returning to it when the time comes.

  6. I love the Auntie Green Garden you are doing a beautiful job with color choices. I am about to quilt a Boho heart for a customer it is a gorgeous paternities
