Slow stitching Sunday...

No progress on the hand quilting this week..... I have 24 blocks completed out of 49. Here is a shot of the quilt as it is this morning.... and of course someone wanted a picture with it as well.

I hope to get a few stitches in on this midget appliqué block today in between finishing up the garden planting with the kiddo's.

I got one old garden tilled and planted with peas and beets yesterday, put in the cucumbers and a zucchini hill in the new one and weeded around half the shed flower/herb garden and added four giant sunflower seeds I found, some chives and some snap dragons for color. I found the lavender bloom, the oregano plant and the bag balm I had in that very overrun with weeds bed. Hopefully I can keep it a little better tamed this year. I need to get some basil and parsley seeds to put in there too.  I need to pull the rest of the grass runners out of the other half of it today while the kids help me to plant the rest of the garden that is tilled.

Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other slow stitching is happening today. I see some hand quilting on the Hugs and Kisses quilt this afternoon as we take a rest for the boy so he does not overdo with his cold. I wonder which movie he'll select?


  1. Cute picture! Hopefully you'll make some progress soon. Your garden sounds lovely.

  2. I love to garden too! We are about a month behind but hopefully the rest of are unusual snow will melt to day as things start to warm up. The sun has felt so much warmer this week. Another great little flower to applique!

  3. We won't be able to get out into the garden here until the end of April/first of May. I'm looking forward to being able to get out into the garden.

    I love that little flower block - so cute!

    Hope Aidan is feeling better today.

  4. Keeping your son in my thoughts today! Hope you enjoy the movie he chooses.... also have fun in the garden today... it is glorious here as I am sure it is there :) Would love to see a pic of your garden when you feel it is pic worthy ;) Happy Stitches Deb! Kathi

  5. Still cold and snow here...loved hearing about the gardening! :)

  6. I'm green with gardening envy!!!! We will get some melting this week.... I hope spring arrives soon! Have fun stitching today!

  7. Oh my... planting a garden is so far from my reality at this time... enjoy!!!
    And the stitching too, of course!

  8. Looking good - both your daughter and the quilt!
