Slow stitching Sunday

Today when I am not at work or at my machine I will be working away on my orange peels for the border of my hugs and kisses quilt. I am adding a frame to the blocks as I sew other projects and eventually this one will become a quilt top. Until then, I am enjoying every slow stitch in those little stolen moments of time during the day. It is so hard to believe that all these little peels were stitched in the car while waiting for kids, at doctor's office waiting rooms or in the evenings watching tv. I love that I can show something got done during that time and I get a beautiful quilt out of the deal. Such a bonus.

Greg is dropping the kids to Grandma today and I have about 30 minutes before I need to head into work. I think I'll go work on borders for my Quilters Scrapbook. Tonight I get a date night with the hubby and then we'll gather the kids from Grandma. No school tomorrow so we don't need them settled and in bed by a certain time. Tomorrow - a play date at the park in the morning.

To see other slow stitching projects, head on over to Kathy's Quilts and enjoy the show.

  1. It is amazing how much time each day is spent waiting. It feels so good to accomplish something so beautiful in that "wasted" time.

  5. I love that too... it always feels quite virtuous to accomplish something while others sit and do nothing! LOL

  7. Handwork ... a wonderful way to make sure that there's no such thing as wasted time.

    I had kind of hoped that I might be able to do a little basting of hexies this weekend ... but I was too busy entertaining a 6 y.o. when he wasn't swimming and "wrestling" with a 4 y.o. who made it pretty obvious that she still needs nap time even though she's not sleeping during nap time any more. ;-) We were at the meet from 5:00-8:30 Friday, 7:00-6:00 Saturday and 7:30-6:30 today. Long, exhausting days ... but it was so much fun!
