Slow Stitching Sunday....

A wee bit late but it is still Sunday! After getting home from work to a partially sick household (Aidan and Daddy), making dinner for me and Emmy of some Swedish meatballs with noodles and then picking up and taking the kids out for a ice cream treat that they were promised (I found the Wendy's drive through by the interstate - nice and close!), it is time to have them wind down for bed. After they are in bed, I get to wind down with some slow stitching on my apple quilt. For now, I am going around the apples and doing an X through the nine patches. I may go back and add another echo or two in the apples and probably a diamond in the nine patches. I broke down and am using a little circle hoop for this one and it seems to be working OK for me - no having to hold the bunch of the quilt in one hand while quilting with the other. I might as well get used to it before I get a big one ready for hand quilting!
Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other projects are being worked on.

  1. Still a little warm here to hand quilt. I have a quilt ready to go but still need to get some thread. Haven't decided what color yet, something I need to get done.

  4. So sorry to hear you've got sickies in the house but I suppose it is that time of year isn't it?

    Love the apple quilt! I have an apple theme kitchen! :)

  5. Deb - your quilting is looking great. Sorry to hear about the sickies. There seems to be a really bad cold going around and my eldest caught it. I think he said that more than half of his co-workers has it as well.
