Slow Sunday Stitching

 My stitching time and quilting time has been in short supply lately. Mostly due to renovations still happening and also grandchild minding, both of which I am truly grateful for, so it is all good. But that means an absence of things to talk about here on the blog. However, yesterday I managed to find my cross stitch stuff and get it all gathered together and take a few stitches in my hymn piece. Last I showed it I was here. 

I put in a few more lengths of threads and got another couple of words done. 

I have the word “tree” left in this line and then I can do a colour change and bigger letters for the next couple of lines. That should make reading the chart a bit easier. The best thing about doing this piece is that the words and the tune are stuck in my head which is most definitely a good thing. And apparently it is World Embroidery Day. Who knew there was such a thing? So I will have to make the attempt to put in at least a few more stitches to acknowledge this.

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


  1. You are making good progress on your hymn words! Thanks for linking up!

  2. This project of yours is lovely indeed.


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.
