Slow Stitching Sunday


I've finished the embroidery on four dishtowels which will be Christmas gifts - part of sets which will consist of an embroidered dishtowel or two, crocheted dishcloth and a couple of potholders.  I make lots for friends and family. 


I was looking for my chicken embroidery transfers for the next set but they seem to have flown the coop. I have a friend who likes Black Americana so I'll embroider her towels next. 


I've prepared 3 blocks for my Crazy Quilt Journal project - a lap quilt called Crazy Cravings.  I pin fabrics to a muslin foundation, blind stitch them together and then embellish the seams.  

A lovely lady (thanks, Kathy!!! ) sent me some fun fabric snippets for my quilt. 


After I finish these three blocks I will have 14 - 12 inch blocks. I'm thinking I'd like to have at least 20 blocks. 

If you are hand stitching anything today why not link up to Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts. And, if you aren't hand stitching why not check out what everyone else is stitching. You'll be inspired to try some hand stitching yourself.

Lovely veggie towels! I have quite a collection of Aunt Martha's transfers, which I'm slowly putting to good use :-).
