Slow Sunday Stitching

 I left off last week with a goal for my slow stitching projects. I was going to finish an element in my cross-stitching before I charged projects so that I wouldn’t forget how to do it. I met that goal yesterday. All the quilt blocks are now outlined and the basket bases that were a challenge to do are finished. That meant I could pick up my Noah’s Journey block - bears and ducks. These are fairly quick to do. I did most of the outline stitching on the bear in the back last evening. I think I’ll keep going until this block is done. It shouldn’t take long. After the bears are finished I’m going to look at the assembly instructions for this quilt and start working on putting it together and doing the blocks that are left as they come up in the assembly, if that makes sense. In between these blocks I will go back and add elements into my cross stitch quilt. This should enable me to keep both projects moving forward.

  1. Your cross stitch piece is so lovely. So much lovely stitching has gone into this pretty. Sweet little bears, too.

  2. I like you cross stitch. The border is gorgeous. The bear and duck block is very interesting. Did you do the painting?


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.
