Slow Sunday Stitching



It's time again for the link-up of Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.  This is my favorite time of the week to visit everyone's sites.  Love seeing all the great projects.  

Well I have been REALLY, REALLY busy this week with my various things, but mostly my project for the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

My project seems to have taken on a life of its on.  So I have been frantically hand stitching on that.  Hope to get the rest of it stitched today and tomorrow when I have the grandkids, and Tuesday I can put it together and write my blog post.  

The beginning of last week, I started stitching on a Kathy Schmitz design I received in her One Stitch At a Time Club.     I'm trying to finish a number of these and put them into a wallhanging for one of my daughters for Christmas who loves birds.



Here's a peek at some of the stitching I am working on for the blog





I will be linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  Stop by and see what others are doing if you have a chance.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Slow Sunday Stitching



Time to report in again for Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts  I have worked on a couple of slow stitching projects this week.  

I finished my Cheri Payne stitchery called God Bless America.    I plan to make it into a pillow, but haven't gotten to that yet. 



I also finished up this month's assignment of the Buhl-Bushong Quilt, from the Virginia Quilt Museum's collection of quilts.  It is being offered as a BOM download from the Museum's Facebook Page.   


I've decided to take the wing off my bird and use a fabric that shows more contrast.  

Next up, I will be working on one of the stitcheries patterns I have received from Kathy Schmitz' One Stitch At a Time Club.  

Be sure and pop over to Kathy's Quilts and see what others have done for Slow Sunday Stitching
