Slow Sunday Stitching

“October is the opal month of the year. It is the month of glory, of ripeness. It is the picture-month.”    – Henry Ward Beecher

 

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 

I am a happy camper!  I actually finished a block in just one week!  Ha, ha!

Block 17 done!

Aunt Bea's Parlor - Block 17

The pattern, and my Google searches, show the embroidery being done with a running stitch, or a backstitch.  I chose to embroider with a stem stitch.  

I don’t know why.  But there ya have it.

Onto Block 18!

Aunt Bea's Parlor - Block 18

Just three more blocks to go, and the embroidery portion of Aunt Bea’s Parlor will be finished!  Woohoo!

I am linking up with Kathy’s Quilts Slow Sunday Stitching.  Click on the link, and check out the projects that others are working on!  Maybe you’ll be inspired to relax with some slow stitching, too!
