Hand Quilt Along, Slow Sunday Stitching



Happy Valentines Day everyone!   I am planning to have a shrimp cocktail, split a steak and baked potato with my sweetheart and maybe a piece of cake.  

Three weeks has passed again, and time to check in for the Hand Quilt Along.  I have been pretty busy this week with several projects.  I've been working on my project for the Show Your Stripes Blog Hop coming up.  

I also was able to get a block done for the Pieces From the Past Sewalong being done by Melva @Melva Loves Scraps.



On the slow stitching front, I am still trying to catch up my Ella Maria Deacon blocks.  I was able get three more blocks done.




For my slow stitching this week I will be working on this last EMD block I am behind on.  The new ones come out in three days,.  


Check out the other Hand Quilt Along links below.

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.

I will be linking up, with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.

My Saturday turned into a wonderful day.  I had just wrapped up a package of little goodies for Granddaughter Kyleigh to tell her I was thinking and missing her.  I had it on the bench to take out to the mailbox.  About 5 minutes later, Kyleigh texted me, and told me she was in town, and could she come over to visit.  She apparently flew back home to surprise her dad.  When he was watching a Super Bowl commercial last Sunday got tears in his eyes thinking about Kyleigh.   She apparently has classes all day on Tuesdays, but the rest of the week is free, so she was able to come out on Wednesday last week and is flying back on Monday, and gets to spend Valentine's Day with her boyfriend Drew.  Next week she starts her nursing clinical, and she needed to have regular office clothes to wear instead of scrubs this time, so she and Drew planned to go shopping before she returned.   What a treat to have them visit.  





Thanks for stopping by!

Love your EMD blocks, Karrin! The one you're working on now looks like EPP, but are you then appliqueing it onto the background? Sounds wonderful to have that surprise visit from your granddaughter! Happy Valentines Day!
