Slow Stitching

 I continue to work on my 3 hand projects, alternating them per day. I am enjoying doing this. I can make good progress each day per project. None get neglected and I don’t get tired of just working on one thing at a time. 

First off is Noah’s Journey. This month it is ostriches and armadillos and peacocks. The ostriches are done and the armadillos are started. I love the little touches like the bows in this design.

Next up is my sweater. One sleeve is finished and the second has 2 or 3 inches done. There was supposed to be colour work on the sleeve down near the cuff. I had started the colour work but I didn’t like the way it looked so I ripped it out and did just plain.

And last is the Millefiori Mandala. It is much slower going than the other 2 projects, but I am enjoying the process. It is so different from anything else I have done in the last few years which I think is part of why it is so enjoyable. This is today’s project. So I will link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching, check out the other Slow stitchers and do some cross stitch. We may get out a little later this afternoon for a walk, just to get out of the house for a bit.


  1. All three projects are looking great! I just knew you would like that cross stitch pattern! I like the plain sleeves on your sweater. You will soon be wearing it!

  2. I enjoy watching your progress on the Noah's Journey. Can't wait to see the finish. Other projects are beautiful too!

  3. Your Noah's Journey is amazing. You have a lot of "pretty" going on in your world!

  4. I haven't had much time for blog-reading lately, and I'm amazed at what I've missed here. You've got some beautiful projects on the go - especially the cross-stitch!
    Hope to keep up a little better now - there's a lot of inspiration to keep up with!

  5. Love your Noah's blocks and the sweather, it is almost done and 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.
