Progress is happening with the Farm Girl stitchery project!
I am definitely enjoying some stress free time while stitching this sweet country girl!
Are you slow stitching today? Need inspiration?
Check out the link up at Slow Sunday Stitching! There are lots of fun projects by like minded stitchers to see!
Stay healthy! Stay safe!
Farm Girl Post 1
I am pleased to say that Block 19 from the Aunt Bea’s Parlor project is completed!
I’ll be working on Block 20…the last block!
I am linking up with Kathy’s Quilts Slow Sunday Stitching.
Thanks to Kathy, I have been motivated to get these blocks embroidered. If you click on the link, you can check out the projects that others are working on!
Maybe you’ll be motivated to work on a project that has been sitting around just waiting for some slow stitching, too!
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” – Henry David Thoreau
“Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.”
– Charles M. Schulz
“October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!”
– Rainbow Rowell
While I enjoy these splendid Autumn days, I am slowly making progress on the Aunt Bea’s Parlor embroidery blocks.
Block 18 is finished!
Along with stitching on Block 19 today, I am going to plant a few bulbs in the garden.
That is an interesting thought to ponder…planting hope while the leaves are falling.

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

“In emerald tufts, flowers purple, blue and white;
Like sapphire, pearl, and rich embroidery,
Buckled below fair knighthood’s bending knee;
Fairies use flower for their charactery.”
― William Shakespeare
“Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that – one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
I am still slowly; very, very slowly, stitching blocks from the Aunt Bea’s Parlor pattern.
I have finished block number 16.
Onto block number 17.
