Slow Stitching Sunday


Today I plan to work on Circle of Jewels. I need to make some half flower rosettes and some half jewels.  This means I am almost finished with the hand stitching part of this quilt. I love my zebra lap desk. It has a nice padded underside so stays almost level on my lap.  That is if a cute little dog or a couple of kittens stay out of the way.


Last Monday I took this photo. I have since finished the bottom row, See there on the right side, 2nd row?  I was unsure what to fill that with so I sent this picture off in an email off to Mickey DePre for her opinion. (After all, it is all her fault that I started this. All she did was post one little picture of her future project and I fell in love and went crazy! Crazy in a good way!!)  She said she planned to fill her sides in with half flowers so I will too.  Then I will machine applique it to a narrow border and add a wider black and white print border like I did with Mae's GFG. I will probably quilt it pretty much the same as her's too.

This isn't a big quilt, it's just the right size to cuddle on the couch with.

What are you stitching today? See great projects at Kathy's Quilt: Slow Sunday Stitching.

I must resist...I must resist...you were tempted and now I am seriously tempted to start this pattern. It's beautiful!

this is simply stunning!

Nice hexagon project. I am tempted to do something with hexagons but deciding what is daunting. There are so many wonderful designs you can do with them.

Just a bit more to do and your piecing will be done! Happy stitching to you!

This is coming together so quickly! It seems like just yesterday you started this one. Very pretty.

So pretty and sparkly! I sure hope I don't fall in love with starting another project!

That's one gorgeous quilt in progress! I love EPP and must muster up all the resistance I can! ;-) At least until I finish the MWFG I'm in the middle of, the Texas Star I have a little bit of a start on, and the POTC that I have promised myself will be next. ;-)
