Slow Sunday Stitching

These summer weeks are flying by!  Time to report in again for Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.  

This past week, I have had a lot of slow stitching going on around here.  I finished this Kathy Schmitz design.

Then I started another one and finished it last night. 

I stitched out one of Jenny of Elefantz's patterns and made it into a sewing bag for granddaughter Kyleigh using Jenny's tutorial here.

I also stitched the Hospital Sketches BOM by Barbara Brackman at Civil War Quilts

Today, and probably for the next week or so I will be working on this crazy quilted block, working on the embellishment and hand stitching.  My daughter Katie's BD is at the end of the month, and she requested this as her gift.  She requested a vintage mermaid and I printed that onto fabric. So now the fun part begins.

I'll be linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.  Head on over and see what everyone else is doing.  It is one of my favorite Sunday activities.

Your projects are so nice. I especially love the top two embroideries. Your work is very neat!

Gretchen Weaver said...

Your embroideries are so pretty, so is the applique. You've been busy!

Oh my goodness I just saw the Merry stitchery on another blogger's post. I love it. Your bird house and the little bird are just adorable.

Oh goodness, you have been busy. I really love the colors of your Kathy Schmitz bird on the branch. I tend to use just one or two colors, but need to branch out with more color. That blue is really nice. I love the Hospital Sketches block. The crazy quilt piece is going to be beautiful. I love Jenny's designs, but have only stitched her Postcards from Heaven designs, so far. So much I wanna do!!!!

I'm amazed, being able to print a vintage mermaid onto fabric! Im certainly not that clever. You have shown us lots of pretty work here today.

Love the hand embroidery pieces I'm preparing to work on a Kathy Schmitz piece this week. Your applique block is pretty and I look forward to seeing the crazy quilt piece when it done.

Your embroidered blocks are so beautiful. What exquisite stitching you do, Karrin! And your Hospital Sketches block looks wonderful. I made only one block for that sewalong. I just couldn't keep up.

How fun that 2 slow stitchers worked on the same embroidery project and linked up beside each other!
Love this Merry heart embroidery design... I think I'l have to make one myself!

I adore your stitcheries, Kathy’s and Jenny’s. How clever to add one to the bag...I’m sure it will be loved. Your appliqué is lovely as well. Isn’t this hobby of our wonderful! I don’t know what I would do without it frankly. Happy Stitching!
