Slow Sunday Stitching

 I finished off a couple of slow stitching projects this past week. I started a pair of thrummed mittens for my husband a couple of days before Christmas, with no real  thoughts of having them done by Christmas Day. And that was correct. But I did get them finished yesterday. A good way to start the New Year off right, with some finishes. He normally only wears gloves, but he discovered that gloves aren’t quite warm enough for the cold Muskoka winter days. 

The other finish was my Peppermint Purple 2021 weekly stitch along. I’ll need to find a frame for it at some point, but I’m reluctant at this point in time to go into too many stores for non essentials.

So I’ve packed up all my DMC floss that I was using for the stitch along and have dug out my Harbour Village cross stitch sampler. It’s going to take some studying to find out where I am in the next row. But finding it and digging it out is a start in that direction.

The other Slow Stitching finishes I had over the past month have been a couple of Christmas themed embroideries. I made them up into pillows which were given as Christmas gifts. The pile of unfinished projects is slowly going down, which feels really good.

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

  3. That is a lot of progress. I am sure the finished sampler will keep until the stores are safe again. It is nice that fabric and thread don't go bad.

  4. Those mittens look so cozy and wow! Your hand stitched projects are beautiful - especially the Nativity scene. Thank you for sharing!

  5. You’ve been busy! Great finishes! I can’t wait to see the Harbour village progress next week.

  6. Happy new year! Such a colourful quilts . May your year be as pretty and colourful!


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.
