Slow Sunday Stitching

I left a comment on somebody’s blog this morning, after reading that they were sitting outside stitching. The comment was something to the effect that it wasn’t warm enough here yet for outside stitching. Well, this afternoon proved me wrong. It was gorgeous, and allowed for a blissful hour sitting in the sun and stitching. It felt so good!!
I’m still working with my kites and diamonds. I’ve got a few of them surrounded by the Kona Pepper now, and am liking the way that they look, sparkling against the night sky. This one will be called Orion’s Belt. I’m trying to diversify the fabric selection a bit, and not just stick to the batiks, as much as I love them.
I’m probably going to make four of the blocks and then call it finished. I’m making these more as samples for patterns, rather than full size quilts. I have at least three more designs, based on the kite shape, to make up. As long as I’m having fun with these, I’ll keep going.
It’s time to link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and get some supper.

  1. Very nice stars! I did some paper piecing today too, but not outside. I did some gardening and went for a walk though. What a glorious day!

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
