Slow Sunday Stitching

 For my slow stitching I’m exclusively working on my Noah’s Journey hand quilting. Looking at this laid out on the floor makes me think I just might be up to the 1/3rd finished mark. I tried to get a picture of the whole thing, but all it showed was tons of wrinkles and no detail, so I took pictures of the sections instead. Here are the blocks on the top left. This is the ark. I’m so glad I went with the whimsical clouds in the background. And here’s the right side of the top section. I’m currently working on the hippos and moose block. That cloud on the right might be a bit too big.

I finished up another Prayers and Squares quilt this week. This is the most up to date picture of it. After this picture was taken it got top and bottom borders. Since this is done, I’m able to add it to my stash used numbers.

Fabric in:   0 yards               

Fabric out: 5.7 yards            

Balance: 31.25 yards used year to date.

We got a good amount of snow yesterday, in spite of it being 2 days away from the beginning of spring. I think there is another 4 or 5 inches of new snow out there. I ordered my spring supply of seeds last week and I’m itching to get some of them started. We will be setting up some grow lights and starting the tomatoes and peppers once they get here. I suspect I ordered way more seeds than our 2   4 foot x 8 foot raised beds can accommodate, so we may have to get creative about where to put it all. Anyhow, I am going to link to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and then get my second cup of coffee. Our grand daughter is coming down after lunch to make pumpkin cookies. A good activity for a cold winter day.

  1. Those clouds look fabulous, as does the quilting on the pieced blocks. Another pretty Prayers and Squares quilt. I can never wait till the earth warms up and I can plant seeds. It sounds as if you are going to have a bounteous harvest sometime in later spring/summer.


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.
