Slow Sunday Stitching

On this cold and snowy Sunday, I couldn’t resist the pull to begin a new hand stitching project. I recently got Willyne Hammerstein’s second book, and decided to start her project called Creme Brûlée. Here’s the first of many rosettes to come. It isn’t the most perfect fussy cutting, but I love it, none the less. Let the fussy cutting begin again!! I have lots of fabrics left that are perfect for fussy cutting, purchased when I was on the La Passacaglia binge. I think there is another binge about to happen with this project. Yes, I know I said I wanted to finish My Tweets, and I will...... eventually... But this was calling very loudly for a long time. There’s lots of motifs left in this particular fabric to choose from. So, I’ll post this and link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and then go cut some more jewel shapes.


  1. I've tried fussy cutting with hexagons, it's not an easy task. This little rosette looks fabulous.

  2. Clear templates really help me doing fussy cutting. Love yours.

  3. Very exciting new start! Can't wait to see it develop!


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.
