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:

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.

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!

Slow Sunday Stitching

Inch by inch….

Stitch by stitch….

Last Sunday, I left off with the letter ‘P’.

‘Q’ and ‘R’ are finished, so this Sunday the letter ‘S’ will be stitched.

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?

Slow Sunday Stitching

Last Sunday, I was working on the letter ‘I’ while sitting in my lawn chair enjoying the lovely day.

I also completed the letter ‘J’, so I will be stitching the letter ‘K’ today.

I know that it is slow going, but that is okay.  After putting in longer hours at work this week, and Sunday being my only day off, I need a slow day!

Maybe you do, too!

Slow Sunday Stitching

Last Sunday, I had stitched up to the letter ‘e’  and intended to stitch the letter ‘f’.

I not only stitched the letter ‘f’, but I stitched ‘g’ and ‘h’ as well.

Today, I will be sitting in my lawn chair and stitching the letter ‘I’.  Maybe I will even stitch two letters!
