Slow Sunday Stitching

 I’m continuing to work on My Harbour Village cross stitch sampler. When I posted last week I was here. I’ve since made really good progress, finishing rows five, six and seven as well as doing the details up in the scene section where I had to add in the little boats and kayakers. I’m just now starting into row 8 which has a light house at each end and some text in the middle. The text says “ the peace of the hills is about me and the leisure of the summer clouds is mine”. Rather appropriate I think. 

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


  1. I love this piece! Gorgeous stitching!

  2. The text is beautiful! Your cross stitching is gorgeous!

  3. I love the details on this piece. It is beautiful.

  4. Such pretty details in this lovely stitch. Beautiful job. Happy stitching.

  5. That is beautiful Cathy! I can't do cross stitch anymore, especially on linen, but I really love it. I can't see it anymore :-(. And magnifying glasses make me woozy. But I can still do the hand piecing and outline embroidery which I enjoy. Can't wait to see your recent pieces framed!


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.
