Slow stitching Sunday

Today will be a long day of settling into new rooms. That includes settling into my new sewing area! We need to do some moving of things in the shed to get to the slat boards that will be put up on my back wall. That should make shelving and hooks easy to put up and rearrange as I want.

I finished the last step of my crochet along last night.

I also added the last set of squares to my trip around the world block in pink.

That leaves me with  some hand appliqué  - back basting  - on my Midget blocks this evening. Nice and relaxing after a long day.

Head on over and see what others are working on today for Slow Sunday Stitching.

I have never seen a design added to the top of a crocheted block so interesting! Thanks for reminding me I need to find time for my TATW, too. Love it in all those shades of pink. Don't over do with all the moving and enjoy your relaxing applique stitches. We are headed to LR for some shopping but hope to get to my stitching this afternoon

Hey Deb! Love how your crochet granny squares turned out with your addition to them. I am excited about the wall system you will be using in your new sewing space.. I hope all get settled today.. at least in the rooms should be in maybe :) Loving your pink post Friday and your TATW block today too! Wonderful progress amidst your busyness! Thanks for sharing!

I've been tempted by those midget blocks--so cute! The crochet blocks look interesting--can't wait to see the completed project.

Those granny squares are intriguing! Would love to have a feel and a proper look at them.
Midget blocks look cute.

The crochet and piecing look lovely! :) I was looking back over some older posts seeing your settling in :)

I've never heard of a crochet along. Those blocks are cute. Have fun with the midget blocks.

You have a bunch of pretty projects in the works. I really like your trip around the world.

I dread moving things around - it always seems to create lost more work than intended. Nice work on your projects. You are so industrious!

You have been busy with hand-stitching projects! So interesting to see the various crochet mystery blocks coming together across blogland. Love the pink TATW - it will be fun to see all the Trip blocks at the end of the year!

I'm in the midst of creating a new sewing space too. Progress is stalled at the moment. Glad to hear your space is just about done. Have fun with your handwork projects!
