Slow stitching Sunday

After a very busy day yesterday, I enjoyed some sewing time today and some hand work.
After a little girl woke us up around 7:30 telling us ' It's Mornin' she decided she was hungry and wanted to go out for breakfast. We hit Ihop and had a good breakfast.... she was hungry and ate her whole smiley face pancake!

After we got home I was able to finish off my needle turn applique for my Midget block this week in between reading some books to Emmy. I forgot to take a picture of those pieces but they were quarter circles onto a 1 and 5/8 inch block. Can you say tiny?

After running a few more errands and having lunch - Em and Daddy took naps so I got to SEW!!!! I got this top put together today. This is completely from stash and yes, I was out of the green and cream fabrics I used in the hour glass blocks. I think it came out ok.


Tonight I hope to finish off this little 12 inch block from a quilt block along last year. I just have a little of the inner border and then the outer border to go. I have one more of these blocks ready for quilting.... I guess it is time to go back and make some more of them.


Head on over to Kathy Quilts and see what other slow stitches are being taken today.

  2. I sandwiched a miniature today to get ready to hand quilt. Just can't decided what to do yet. I find it hard to decided what kind of quilting to add to a little quilt. Love the stars!

  3. I love this quilt you are hand quilting. I am hoping someday, before my fingers no longer work, that I can try just one hand quilted project. It's pretty intimidating to me though!! :-)

  7. Love your nine patch quilt! The green border and hourglass blocks really set the blocks off nicely.
