Slow Stitching

I’ve finished up the It’s A Plus class sample and it’s been delivered to the store that will be hosting the class. That’s a HUGE relief to have that done. That took up all my slow stitching time up until yesterday. I’ve picked up the embroidery since the and have finished up the third in the series of nine.        
Grow In Grace, 
Be Healed 
and Be Blessed.
I also fell prey to an Eat Sleep Knit flash knit along, except my project is a crochet along. I rarely do crochet any more. Most of the time I don’t like the way they look. But this pattern really caught my eye.I love the ridges on it. It is Midnight Walk Shawl. I started it Friday evening and have almost one ball of yarn almost used up in it. That means it is about 1/3rd finished. I’m not sure what colour is going to go next.... probably the leftovers shown in the picture. One thing I do remember about crochet is that it is much faster than knitting. The flash means that this project needs to be finished by May 24th. Can I do it? If I keep on at this pace, I should be able to. I’ll link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching in the morning.


  1. Love Those little embroideries! The wool for your crochet is very nice and I bet you can have it finished by 24th! Good luck!

  2. Your A Plus class sample is striking. Fabulous you finished it. I love the pretty embroideries you are stitching. Each little message is inspirational. Fingers crossed your shawl is finished for the 24th.

  3. Your paper piecing quilts are so fascinating. It's so great to see this process in more and more designs than the usual hexies seen everywhere else. I'm in California and can't take the class. I'm wondering if there will be a pattern, or I missed it in a previous post. Jenny does wonderful blocks. Congrats on all your slow stitching.

  4. Ooohhh I love that shawl... beautiful yarn!
    Enjoy your slow stitching today!


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.
