Hand Quilt Along, Slow Sunday Stitching

Another three weeks has flown by, and it is time to report in again for the Hand Quilt Along.  I spent most of that time working on my 12 Days of Christmas in July Project.  You can see that post here.  I spent about a week (except the 2 days a week I have been watching my grandchildren)  getting the machine embroidered motifs done.  I had a few snafus and I kept having to start over.  Then I spent the next week and a half hand-embroidering the crazy quilt pieces.  

My sister asked me several years ago to make her a tree skirt, and I finally got it done.  I'm going to give it to her for her birthday later this month, then she will have it in time for Christmas.  


This is the finished tree skirt.  I still need to add some snaps at the back and it will be ready to go.  Hard to get a good picture.  Too bright outside, and too dark inside.




After I got that project done, I started working on some of my Kathy Schmitz stitcheries.  I belong to the One Stitch at a Time Club and I am working these bird ones up for a wallhanging for one of my daughters for Christmas.  I finished the first one, and started on the second one.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

Cute cute tree skirt! I love your Kathy S stitchery. I printed off some patterns of hers to put on tea towels; can't wait to try them.

That tree skirt is very pretty. What a great birthday gift. I like those embroidered pieces. I look forward to seeing what they become.

Great job getting the tree skirt done for the upcoming BD and Christmas! And I know what you mean about too bright outside and too dark inside!?!

The tree skirt is just wonderful! I've been wanting a real tree skirt for years, maybe its finally time. :) Those Kathy Schmidt designs are delicate and so nicely rendered. Your embroidery is top notch, Karrin!

Sweet bird stitchery and done well by you. Kathy's stitchery club has had such nice designs. I never signed up but enjoy seeing others work on them.

I love Kathy's embroidery designs, but I have yet to stitch one of the club selections. At least I know right where they are! Yours looks wonderful, of course!
