Slow Sunday Stitching

I finally chose the fabrics for the flower head for this section of Hold Onto Your Heart. I knew I wanted purples, but I couldn’t find the right purples in the fabrics I already had out. That meant I needed to go to my storage area under the stairs and dig out the purples box. Why is it that the colour I want is always the one on the bottom behind all the other boxes? (sigh) Anyhow, after I made a mess by pulling out the boxes, I found the colours I wanted and got busy making a flower head.

The background fabric for this project actually adds a whole other dimension. I love the teddy bear and the tea set sitting beside the flower.

I also finished my sweater this week.

I still need to weave in all the end bits, a job I’m not too terribly fond of. That’s it for my slow stitching this week. I’ll link up with Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.


  1. That purple flower is stunning! But not as much as the teddy bear fabric! What a setting!!!

  2. That flower is gorgeous, as is your sweater! Great work!

  3. It's purple day! Love the sweater... great job on that amazing design!
    I am in awe of knitters... I'm a wannabe knitter!
    Love that background fabric that as you say, does add another whole element to the project!

  4. Yes, I think the wonderful colour of purple is being celebrated at your place today! Love the flower, and the sweater, too. The fair isle pattern is pretty.

  5. Your applique design is so neat especially on your print background.! Love the layers of colors...so pretty.
    But I can't imagine knitting that sweater! Wow, just amazing!

  6. Gorgeous flower head which was work digging through boxes!


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.
