Slow Stitching

Looks like it's shaping up to be a beautiful day.....and what better way to start the day than with a few stitches!

This morning I felt like a bit of embroidery, so I worked a bit on my Flowerville....



There are nine embroidered blocks for this quilt and at the rate this one is moving along, I think it'll be a block per year. That's ok, this is one of those that is just nice to have around for when the mood strikes.

I go on a Retreat next week to the Elmhurst Inn hosted by my local quilt shop, Quilt Junction. I'm soooo looking forward to it. 

As I work through this week, I'll start thinking of what projects to take along for Retreat and putting them in a box as I think of them. This morning I'm just imagining how relaxing it would be to just pack up hand-sewing projects. The thought sounds so nice....to be curled up in a chair poking away or reading a book. Can't wait!!

I am linking up with Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching

Have a wonderful day!!

  3. I love having an embroidery project sitting around that I can pick up and work on when I want to...not because I feel I "have" to! Yours is quite lovely ... are the flosses variegated? It's a pretty pattern -- whose is it? I'd love to take a peek at the whole BOM! :)
