Slow and steady wins the race. I can take Sitting Pretty off of my UFO list. Hooray!
Sweetness isn’t normally something I would want to make, so it must be the floral theme of the design that attracted me to it.
In any case, I enjoyed working the hand embroidery, and the wall hanging turned out cute.
A few close ups:
As I upload these photos, I see that I forgot to add a few button embellishments. I’ll take care of that soon.
I am making progress with Sitting Pretty.
The borders are on, and the quilt top is pin-basted.
On to the quilting. After June, I think.
I am getting my ‘Grandma Fix’. Five grandchildren, 2 daughters, and a son-in-law will be visiting this month.
I have finished embroidering two more blocks from the Sitting Pretty pattern by Cynthia Thomaszewski.
On to the borders!

These days sewing is a rare treat for me. So I pulled out a pattern from my long list of ‘somedays’, and I’ve been sneaking in some enjoyable hand work.
I bought the pattern, Sitting Pretty by Cynthia Thomaszewski, many moons ago.
This sweet little number can be done entirely by machine of course, but I’ve chosen to embroider the raw edges of the applique pieces by hand.
It is a serene event for me. It wouldn’t take very long, except I don’t have a lot of time. No matter.
It is the process that brings me pleasure.
How about you? Is it the process, or the finished product that you enjoy the most?
It is okay to have unfinished projects. I give you permission.
