Slow Stitching Sunday....

After doing some yard work yesterday morning I was completely wiped out for the rest of the day. It also probably was not the best thing to do with a sore foot since my PT on Thursday.... but... the flower beds are weeded out front and some of the bushes were wacked... I mean trimmed.

That led me to the recliner and some slow stitching in the afternoon.  I got all my prepped baskets completed....

and need to prep 2 more to make 8 for a small wall hanging while the 25 others will become another little quilt to be hand quilted. I plan to exercise the machine today while the kids are gone and get those rows sewn together into a top for the 25 baskets. Not a great photo but I think this is the layout I am going with.

I was able to get this to a top stage today. Looks a little washed out in the photo but it is a 32x32 top now. 

Since I was so tired yesterday and went to bed really early.... I was up at 6:30 and had peace and quiet while the rest were sleeping. I was able to finish off the last basket and finish one of the corner borders for the 1857 quilt. I will needle turn the last corner border sometime today while resting my foot.

Head on over and see what others are slow stitching today.


  1. Oh that will be the cutest little baskets piece--the fleur-de-lis corner block is very nice--hugs, hope your foot feels better soon...Julierose

  2. Your baskets are coming along beautifully....

  3. Wow all that hand work and weeding got done too? You had an awesome weekend.

  4. Your baskets are so beautiful! Your stitching is lovely! I'm looking forward to finishing more of my UFOs so that I can start on my own basket quilt! Thank you so much for your inspiration!

  5. Those itty bitty baskets are so cute!

  6. I love that little basket quilt. The fabric you used in the triangles is perfect.
