Slow Sunday Stitching

I got a lot of slow stitching in this week, namely in the form of Ella Maria Deacon blocks.  I finished this one I had been working on last week.  I really like this one. 


Then I got two more finished.  I had spent last week prepping all these blocks for applique.  


I have two more prepped for applique, and this will be my slow stitching for this week.    After I finish these two, I will be all caught up for the new ones coming out on the 15th.  


I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.    Head on over and check out what everyone else has been up to.  

Thanks everyone for the suggestions last week on my shelf that was coming loose from the wall.  My grandson Jaeger was able to come over late last week, and we took the shelf down, moved it over and two of the three brackets are now in studs, and one that is not, is secured with drywall anchors.    I also went through all that "stuff" that was up there to begin with, and lightened the load, sorting through the books and magazines which will find new homes, removing a container with some heavy fabric, and putting some of my laces and trims I use for crazy quilting up there.  They are pretty light.  I still have a bunch of  "stuff"  on the counters I need to sort through and determine if I want or not.  I am trying to go through everything in that room and weeding out that I no longer want or need.  

For the Stay at Home Round Robin this week the row this week was suggested by Anja Quilts for flying geese.  In looking through the various designers rows, I noticed that Emily @The Darling Dogwood did migrating flying geese and had gotten the idea from Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Design that has a technique sheet with the details.  I ordered one and have been waiting for it to arrive, so I can get my round done before Monday.  Thankfully it arrived in the mail today, and I started making the components.    I still have to put the four sides together, but they are coming out pretty well.


Thanks for stopping by!

I love those staggered flying geese! I'm also very glad you got the shelves stablized, sure didn't want that falling over on you. Happy stitching!

Those are wonderful geese! I’m glad you were able to get the shelf sorted with Jaeger’s help. Having it attached to the studs will make a huge difference, but a thorough sort out is always a good thing too!😉 It sounds as though life is calming down a bit, hope that John is doing better and at least stable. It makes a huge difference when one is not constantly listening for trouble!

Kudos to Jaeger for helping you to fix the shelf. Sounds like it will stay in place now! I love the blue Dresden block. So pretty,

Glad your grandson was able to head over and help with the shelf. The flying geese are looking great. All caught up on the Ella blocks with plenty of time to spare.

Your EMD blocks are so pretty! I like the one you shared first, too. Sounds like your grandson is a handy and helpful guy - glad you got your problem shelf figured out. The migrating geese blocks are really neat - looking forward to seeing them on your project. I'm still working on my round 3, too - my geese are flying slowly!

Your Ell Maria Deacon blocks are lovely. I too love that blue pretty you have just finished. I can just imagine how beautiful this quilt is going to look when each lovely applique block is complete. Love your flying geese, too. Fabulous your grandson and you were able to sort out the shelf problem. It's a win win, especially being able to cull some 'stuff' and re-organise your supplies.

This variety of flying geese was very nice. The blocks you sew are also beautiful. I especially liked the blue one. So good you got help with the shelf. What a helpful and handy grandson.

Your applique blocks are so pretty. I enjoy appliqueing too. It is very relaxing. Love those flying geese. I have never seen them staggered. How fun. I hope you have a wonderful week and happy quilting.
