Slow Sunday Stitching

Time to report in again for Slow Sunday Stitching @ Kathy's Quilts.  My favorite day of the week to visit blogs and find out what everyone has been up to. 

I have been quite busy, working on Hands2Help comfort quilts during the day.  At night this week I worked on my Ella Maria Deacon blocks.  Not sure I am happy with the broderie perse, I might redo that one.  Still deciding.

Today I prepped the block for Cassandra's Circle.  This one should be pretty easy to do.

Next up, I am prepping a new applique project (like I really needed another), I came across on Instagram.  It is a Sunflower Sew Along, @fixer_of_old_quilts.  The original block was from a quilt dated 1863 in the collection of Cathy Erickson @quiltingcat2, which is being used with her permission.  If you might be interested, check out the post @fixer_of_old_quilts.   I might do 4 blocks instead of 1.  

A few pictures of blooms in my yard.  I still need to do some weeding, but the flowers are pretty.  The foxgloves apparently reseeded themselves because I have more coming up along the fence.  

And the irises are blooming.  

Hope everyone is staying safe and is well!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

I will be linking up at Slow Sunday Stitching @ Kathy's Quilts.    Pop on over there and see what everyone has been up to.

I had to stop at your blog first when I saw Cassandras Circle. What a gorgeous block. I like all of the others too. Your flowers are pretty. The leaves of my irises are just emerging. It will be a while before I see flowers. Yours are a very pretty yellow.

Your Ella blocks are so pretty! I love the color in them! Enjoyed seeing your flowers blooming, too - everything is very slow this year here in Colorado so I have to see flowers online!
