Sunday Stitching

My goodness, December is just racing by!

Hopefully you can take some time during this hectic season to have some down-time and enjoy the moments that are special.

I didn't have too much stitching to do this morning as I need to take time to get some serious prep-work done, but I did have a couple of leaves to stitch to my Queen's Garden applique...

I hope to prep the next block this afternoon, as it is my monthly goal to complete said block!

As of this past Friday I am officially on Christmas break, which means I finally got the tree decorated. For some reason, Minnie thinks the new tree skirt was made as a new bed for her...she loves it...

Today I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. I am also inviting you to read my post from the other day so I can tempt you with the idea of joining me in doing a temperature quilt in 2019. You can read about it HERE.

Have a great day!


  1. The tree skirt is perfect for Minnie! I am finished work after Monday until after New Years. I am looking forward to some down time too.

  2. I love the colours on the Queens Garden quilt, so calm and soothing! I can see why Minnie would like the tree skirt, it's great :-)

  3. Minnie has very good taste, your new tree skirt is beautiful. I'm also intrigued by your appliqué - there's an Orange Peel quilt that I've been pondering for a while now but it has yet to get started because there is a lineup of hand stitching projects in front of it. One of these days...

  4. Lovely tree--and beautiful quilt....I am taking time to s l o w down --I am not a fan of the hectic Holiday rushing around...hugs, Julierose

  5. I love the block you are working on ... those seed shapes are so fun to applique... makes me want to work on my pumpkin seed quilt!
    Love the Minnie photo... my grand dog likes to sleep under the tree also!
    Will check out what you're up to with tempting us to start a new project.....

  6. Oh the colours and fabrics and beautiful stitching on that block! Immaculate. I will be checking by to see what you make of a temperature quilt as well.

  7. I think I need to make a lone star tree skirt! It's beautiful!
