“What are you doing?”
“I’m darning a sock,” he said, holding it up to show me.
“What’s that lump inside?”
“A sock egg.”
“A sock egg? I didn’t know socks hatched from eggs.”
“Only the best ones do. I can’t wear the cheap kind, the ones that grow on trees. They give me blisters.”
― Polly Shulman, The Grimm Legacy
I am working on some mending that I have long procrastinated on. Nobody cares, least of all myself. Ha, ha!
What else is happening this Sunday?
I continue to work on Aunt Bea’s Parlor for Slow Stitching Sunday. There are 20 blocks, so this is a long-term project.
I have finished block 4.
Next up, block 5.
I am linking up with Kathy at Slow Sunday Stitching.
Today is Slow Stitching Sunday.
Before I sit in my easy chair, I am planning to try a new-to-me recipe. I am making a No-Knead Crusty White Bread recipe (King Arthur Flour website) that I pinned to My Pinterest Bread Board. The dough is in the refrigerator, ready for baking later.
I will also spend some time free motion quilting on Aunt Sukey Spins Off , my January 2017 UFO Goal.
After these activities, I’ll be ready for my easy chair.
I’m still embroidering Aunt Bea’s Parlor, block 4.
I am making slow progress with the Aunt Bea’s Parlor project.
I finished Block 3.
Today I will begin Block 4.
I am using Sulky’s Sticky Fabri-Solvy Printable sheets to embroider the designs onto the background fabric.
I like that the stabilizer dissolves easily, but I do feel that it is a bit sticky for my needle.
Kathy’s Quilts will keep me company on Sundays. I am linking up with her Slow Sunday Stitching.
I have chosen to work on Aunt Sukey Spins Off for my January UFO Goal.
This quilt is already under the needle, and most of the top is quilted. I need to get the borders quilted, and that will be my focus.
The bonus will be to get the binding on, too, and be finished, but I’ll be pleased to get the quilting accomplished.
Linking up will keep me accountable, focused, and motivated, so I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts – One Monthly Goal.
Another goal this year, is to embroider the blocks for Aunt Bea’s Parlor.
I have two blocks done. I will be working on this project on Sundays.
Kathy’s Quilts will keep me company. I am linking up with her Slow Sunday Stitching.
May your New Year be filled with blessings and the achievements of your goals!
