Slow Sunday Stitching

I have peacefully embroidered the letters ‘K’, ‘L’, ‘M’, ‘N’ and ‘O’ since last Sunday’s sweet slow stitching session.

It is just so wonderful to sit and enjoy the rhythm of stitching while enjoying a quiet time sitting in the shade outdoors.

I love to listen to the hum of the bees and the songs of the birds.

It is a restoration of the soul after a very busy, stressful week.

Maybe you should slow down, too?

  1. Those are so pretty! I don’t take my stitching outside often enough, and I really should. Your post is a good reminder!


  2. Absolutely! I love hand stitching outside listening to the sounds of nature!
    These designs are so pretty!


  3. I am going outside this afternoon, too! We’ve had glorious weather with perfect temps these past couple of days…it’s so refreshing to be outside stitching…especially with the weeding done!!!😆


  4. Your stitching is lovely!


  5. Is there an outside???? LOL. Outside here is no breeze and in the 100’s and getting hotter this week. Looks like August will be a scorcher.
    Laura your stitches are so pretty and you are making great progress.


    • We have reached 100 here as well, Nanette. I can only stitch outside on Sunday mornings. I work the other six days, and by the time that I am off work, it is way too hot to be outdoors. No rain/relief is expected for August.

      Thank you for the compliments! Fortunately, this stitching is quite easy…just what I need! 🙂


  6. Beautiful stitching, it’s a very elegant alphabet 🙂


    • Thank you, Margaret! This is a fun little project! Nothing too complicated like your wonderful challenging projects! 🙂
      I may try something more challenging next. I do have some Brazilian embroidery UFO’s to do.


  7. Aha, I see our ‘L’ was ‘simply slow stitched’ with no fanfare…hopefully our ‘Laura’ hurricane name will claim the same status here sooner than later (Isaias seems to be gearing down to a mere tropical storm for us here in SC).
    Enjoy the rest of your ‘slow – Sunday’


  8. Great progress! You’ve been blessed with weather that lets you get out and stitch on Sundays.


  9. So glad you have that restorative time outdoors with needle and thread.
