Slow Stitching

 This week has seen the finish of a couple of my projects. Block 6 for Noah’s Journey is done. 

Block 7 doesn’t come out for a couple of weeks yet.

The knitting on The Night Forest sweater is done. 

I have to weave in all the ends yet though. Here’s a close up of the top colour work and the bottom colour work. 

I did start a new knitting project. It’s a shawl using double knit weight yarn called Gravity ShawlThere isn’t a whole lot done on it yet.

And then there is the Millefiori Mandala. It’s a stitch along type design that has sections released every 2 weeks. So this one will be going until March. This close up section is part 2. 

I am still enjoying rotating through different projects on different days so I think I will continue with this. I need to get something going for the days that were assigned to Noah’s Journey now that it is done until the next month. I have a few ideas involving new cross stitch designs. I picked up some 28 count fabrics from our local stitchery shop yesterday. Now to figure out how and what to do. They are awfully tiny.......

I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching


  1. Your sweater is lovely - the colour-work looks so good on the purple. I'm gravitating back to doing some counted cross-stitch again - not that I have the time to add another hobby into the mix... Add in dealing with compromised vision due to a blood clot in my right optic nerve, so I now need bright light and a magnifier, but I haven't totally ruled it out!

  2. Oh my, the sweather turned out beautiful, so are your blocks and stitchings. Great progress.


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.
