Slow Sunday Stitching

 Six friends and I are doing a UFO challenge. We made our lists and started on October 1st. I actually started one on my own in September and then some friends expressed a wish to join in with me. We are posting our projects on Facebook. I have actually made up 2 lists. One is quilts that need finishing or at least a certain amount of progress. The second list is for hand work projects. All of my quilting projects and most of my hand work projects were put into boxes and stored away while we were in the process of packing and staging and moving and then getting settled here. So it is time to pull them out and get to working on them again.  I think I will make the lists and put them on a side bar of my blog somewhere, but in the meantime, I have them stored on my phone. October’s number is 3. For my hand work project that was my Peppermint Purple 2021 blackwork Stitch Along. I chose that one on purpose because I wanted to get it caught up. I don’t want it to languish into a UFO. Once it is caught up it will only take an hour or so per week to do the weekly release. At this point I am working on August. I’m choosing my own colours out of my DMC floss stash.

I’m still working on that scarf too. It’s gotten too long now to photograph all along the length. Another 12 inches or so might finish it. I’m discovering that yarn scraps are very much like fabric scraps. They never seem to go away no matter how much I use.

We’re heading out for a drive along Highway 60 into Algonquin Park today to see the changing colours of the leaves. The Provincial Park website says they are at 100% colour change now. It should be glorious. 

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


  1. Your Algonquin park pictures on Facebook were spectacular! I wish I could have come along for the drive. Glad to see you stitching on your peppermint purple sampler again.

  2. Great job on the UFO and lists :-). I'm getting organized this week too and hope to finish my Oct. UFO this week! So satisfying to get some of those long ago projects finished!!!

  3. Scrappy scars are as pretty as scrappy patchwork. UFO lists are always great to work on with others.


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.
