Slow Stitching Sunday


I'm having a blast with my Circle of Jewels. I can't remember the last time I picked up my knitting or crochet at night. I'd rather work on this right now.

I have lots of flowers finished and several more ready to sew. I need 39 and I think I'm in the upper 20s.  Now I need to concentrate on the jewels before sewing any more flowers. I am to the point that I can figure out how many I will need without making way too many or way too few.  It might be time to sit down with graph paper and colored pencils and come up with a real plan.

We love sitting around the table on the deck. (Pretty disappointed the paint is peeling off it though.) Some great conversations have taken place out there. I love seeing what kiddos have left. Trucks are parked, ready for the next visit. Today looks like a good day to sit outside and stitch.

See what's slowing others down at Kathy's Quilt's: Slow Sunday Stitching.

That's what slow sunday stitching is all about... fun stitching, great conversations on the deck, and wonderful memories to carry us through the winter!

That is beautiful. If I didn't have 2 EPP projects going, I just might be tempted to do one like this :-).
