Slow Stitching All Week Long

 I mentioned last week that I had set myself up a rotation for working on my 3 hand stitching projects. It seems to be working well so far. I have made good progress on all three projects. First is the Noah’s Journey block. It is so close to being finished. But I ran out of one of the floss colours for the pink hippo, so I had to order more. That will likely take a week or so to get here. I can finish off the birds in the meantime when it comes up for its turn tomorrow. And the next block is out, so I can get it started as well.

Then there is the cross stitch sampler. Two of the Mandalas are done. And I started the third, but I have discovered that I have the wrong colour going in those little circles, so I need to take those out and get the right colour in.

And then there is the sweater. I have finished the body and gotten a good start on one of the sleeves. Today is the sweater’s turn, so I hope to get a few more inches done on it this evening. I will link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching in the morning.


  1. Lovely needlework. Love the shading on Noah's Journey. Is it Prismacolor Pencil or crayon?

  2. Beautiful stitching, and beautiful sweater! Hope you have a great week!

  3. they all are great but the sweater...oh my...beautiful.

  4. Your Noah's Journey is coming along nicely, oh my goodness I feel for you having to undo some of the stitches. The sweater is so pretty.


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.
