Over the past couple of Sundays, I've come across a couple of blogs that are doing the Slow Sunday Stitching. I love that idea! What a great day to relax and just sit and stitch. So after church this morning and then lunch with the family I got started with a little hand stitching. My little pumpkin quilt needed just one more step before quilting, so I got that done today. I added the little embroidered tendril that you see here and now I'll move on to my Over the River stitchery! You can check out Kindred Quilts post and Kathy's Quilts post about their slow stitching day too!
Hope you're all able to enjoy some slow stitching on this rainy fall Sunday!!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
