Slow Stitching....

Slow stitching to the point of being almost non-existent. I’ve been sick, with drags everything to a halt.... stitching and knitting and blogging. But I’m on the mend now other than being very very tired.It wasn’t anything drastic, just a cold, but every one I get as I get older seems to take more out of me and longer to get over. But I guess that’s true of most things as we age.

I’ve pulled my Hold Onto Your Heart quilt back out and am getting ready to start back at it.  The centre section of this quilt is almost halfway done. 

I’m also thinking of getting out one of my hibernating English Paper Piecing projects, but that hasn’t gone any further than just thinking. I hate this feeling of being too tired to even think let alone do anything else. But as always, it will pass. In the meantime I do web browsing and youtube surfing and marathon Primevideo watching. I’ve gotten into watching Doc Martin lately. It’s quite a lot of fun,

I’m linking up with Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching


  1. This is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. Oh I love Doc Martin and they are filming series 9 now I think.
    Your project is so labour intensive... maybe you need something easier to work on until you feel back to yourself. I'm just getting over a cold also... it really zaps the energy.
    Take good care of yourself and enjoy a bit a slow stitching!

  3. Glad to hear you are on the mend. It's crazy when one is ill even with a cold, that stitching is not even fun. Hold Onto Your Heart quilt block is a worthy return to hand stitching.

  4. I'm sorry to hear that you've been under the weather, but thankful that you're starting to recover. In the meantime, your quilt is looking really stunning!
    I've actually thought of pulling out an old counted cross stitch project, but it hasn't happened yet either... and I don't have a cold to blame it on!

  5. Sorry to hear you're under the weather. I know just what you're saying about getting older and getting sick. Saturday was a travel day for me. When I got home afterwards, I promptly took a 2 hour nap. Your HOTYH is lovely.

  6. Just gorgeous, Cathy! Aging isn't for the feint of heart, huh? I hope you feel better soon!!! :)

  7. So sorry to hear you have been under the weather. I totally get what you are saying. I do love this quilt..can't wait to see it when it is finished. It is stunning. Hope you feel better asap. :)


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.
