Slow Sunday Stitching

I did not post updates of my slow stitching project last Sunday because I was blessed to spend the entire day with family!

So happy!

I do have an update for you, however.

I have completed stitching the alphabet letters!

Here is a last look at the letters before washing and pressing:

And here is a look at the washed and pressed letters:

I shall be cutting the letters apart and then I shall have to decide if I still want to make pincushions, like Jenny did, or make a wall hanging with them.

There is no hurry to make the decision, since I have a free motion quilting project currently under the needle.  I don’t want to set up the sewing machine for another project until I finish the quilt that I am working on (it has just been too hot to work on it).

I have already chosen another hand stitching project, and I will be working on it this Sunday.

The project is called Farm Girl, and comes from Australian Country Threads magazine Volume 5 Number 11…January 2006.

Farm Girl

I already have a certain someone in mind to gift this project to when I am finished!  She is a born and raised farm girl, so I think she will love this!

  1. Hi,
    Love all your letters…they will make beautiful pin cushions…or a wall hanging. Your new stitching project is so cute…have a great day!


  2. New starts are always fun! Enjoy.


  3. Your letters are so sweet and fun! The new embroidery pattern looks like a good one, too. Enjoy!


  4. Oh my those letters are so cute! Can’t wait to see how they will be used! The embroidery is perfect for any farm girl!


  5. I feel more peaceful just perusing your photos on your completed needlework.
    Is that a pink flamingo I spy on our shared letter? I like that!


  6. Great progress on your letters, and your new project is adorable!


  7. It’s so pretty and delicate, I’m looking forward to seeing what you make with the letters.


  8. Love those letters…that would be a lot of pin cushions!!! Your new project is adorable!


  9. Your letters are so pretty! I’m sure whatever you decide to do with them will be lovely! You chose the perfect frame for your beautiful Farm Girl!


  10. How lovely to have had time with family. Your finished letters do look very pretty – it seems a shame to split them up… But I look forward to seeing what you make with them.
    We are having family time this week 🙂 Our two eldest children have their birthday dates just four days apart and both will be visiting us – we are trying to get our heads round the idea of our daughter celebrating her 30th birthday!


  11. Your letters are so pretty. I am sure that Farm Girl will make the recipient smile. Enjoy!


  12. Love the letters, and I sort of share your dilemma of what to do with them. I have a heap of embroidered tress and have a choice of two hangings, one tall hanging for a door perhaps, or a banner.

  14. Great job on the letters! I would probably sew some alternate blocks… hourglasses or 9 patches or something and make it a bigger project to feature the letters.


  15. Yes, I am considering something like that, Kathy. And I am still considering making pincushions, too. Undecided still. 🙂
