Sunday Slow Stitching

Slow Sunday Stitching

It’s Sunday, and while I’m not a faithful poster to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday linky party, I do so love to devote at least some time to handwork.

I’m almost to the end of the pieces I have prepped for applique for this Becky Goldsmith project.  When I finish that stretch, I’ll go back to basting my hexagons for my version of Edyta Sitar’s “Handful of Scraps” design. 

This is what I took as a handwork project for the retreat last week.  Mainly I worked on trying to get as much diversity in the neutrals as I could and my collection has grown.  I've always had a fondness for wood boxes and this cigar box was a gift from one of my Tuesday sewing friends.  She periodically brings one after her hubby has emptied it and we take turns claiming them.

I'm partway done with my hexagon quilt by Edyta Sitar - I'm looking forward to seeing how you do yours

Love Edyta's designs! Your cigar box is great, and your appliqué looks lovely. Slow Stitching is such a nice way to relax. Enjoy!
