Slow Stitching Sunday


I'm not really a Slow Sunday Stitcher, I'm a Slow Stitcher all week long. In the evenings when we are watching tv, I have to have something to do.  Either stitch, knit or crochet.  Lately the yarn projects have been taken over by my Circle of Jewels project.

During the week I worked on jewels. I don't want to find myself with a pile of flowers and then have to stitch oodles and oodles of jewels. That would send this project right into the UFO corner.

I like to keep my box stocked with my goals.  So when I restocked my box last night, I still had the 2 jewels to complete and I added in 3 flower kits.  Before I could start the hexies, I had to finish the jewels.  Such silly games I play!!  When these flowers are complete, I will lay out for my next row and add it to the quilt top.

See fabulous Slow Stitching projects today at Kathy's Quilts.

It is very relaxing slow stitching. So many people are sewing Hexies. It is good to see everyone's different ideas

That's a great idea to reward yourself for the less fun stitching by being able to make a pretty flower!
Thanks for linking up!

I do the same thing! All the time :). I would never finish anything otherwise.

A great way to reward yourself. I have decided how many blocks I should join on each of my projects every month. Then I sum it up on Hexagon Alley at the end of the month.

I love how you play your game...I do the same thing...no more pretty flowers until I cut & sew more green hexies for paths!

Hehe - I do the same thing - little rewards for yourself built in so things get done. I too like to slow stitch a bit during the week. It is very relaxing and I love seeing such pretty results from 'wasted' time (waiting, watching tv, etc.)

I have got to try hexies again this winter! I think I could get into lots of slow stitching too. I love your little box and your silly games.

Sounds like a nice way to keep yourself motivated for the less pretty parts.
