Slow Sunday Stitching.

 My Quilting Bee cross stitch was in time out for a couple of weeks. I’d gotten to the 1 thread of floss over 1 thread of fabric section for the lettering and I was finding it difficult to see and I didn’t have enough patience for it. So it got put away, That seems to have passed and I’ve picked it back up again and made good progress on it. Not only is the lettering done, but so are the quilt blocks and I’ve started on the floral border of the quilt. I still have to do the threads in the quilters’ hands and some beads around the floral arbour which will finish this section. 

In the meantime I continue with knitting mindless hand occupying socks. I have more than enough bright eye catching pairs of socks, so I’ve gone over to more muted shades of grey this time. It seemed to suit my mood somehow.Once these are done I’ll likely go diving into my box of stash yarns and find some more bright ones.

  1. Lovely work on the Quilting Bee block. https://www.craftygardener.ca/embroidery-stitch-book/

  2. Your cross stitch is lovely! I have asked Santa for the same kind of magnifier that Ivani uses so I can do more of this kind of work again.

  3. That colour blue of the socks is lovely. Such a sweet embroidery piece. Love the stitching on the quilt blocks.

  4. Your quilters embroidery piece is wonderful, such fine stitching! And the blue sock yarn is very nice too, we sometimes need more muted socks.

  5. Your cross-stitch is so pretty. Do you have a favorite sock pattern. I want to find one to use to make my first socks.


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.
