Slow Sunday Stitching

Gardening season is here so I haven't worked too much on any hand sewing. A few minutes after work each night  I've been embroidering dishtowels and crocheting dish cloths for Christmas (or whatever) gifts/stocking stuffers. 

I've done all the gardening I can stand today (and I don't think I can stand any longer) so I will settle down on the deck with some hand sewing and a Margarita if there aren't too many gnats out there. 

First I need to finish binding a quilt for my brother for Christmas. 

And then I'll work a bit on my Crazy Farm Crazy Quilt (lap size). I haven't done that in a while so I prepped two 12 inch blocks. I piece scraps to a muslin foundation by hand then embroider and embellish. 

Slow Stitching?

I love the brightness of your 12 inch crazy blocks. Very impressive embroiderie as well.

Enjoy your stitching. Hope the gnats will stay away.

Your embroidery is very beautiful. The Crazy Farm Crazy Quilt is stunning. Love the humming bird. Can't wait to see more. Enjoy your evening, gnats free!

Sewing on the porch sounds wonderful! Hopefully the gnats will stay away and a margarita to enjoy sounds delicious. I didn't get any sewing done this week as we had my mother in law visiting. Hopefully I will find some time to start stitching again tonight.
