A Sunday Duo – HQAL and Slow Sunday Stitching!

Happy Winter Stolice and Merry Christmas week!  Clay and I will be enjoying a peaceful and quiet Christmas.  I will always be wishing to be in Arizona during the winter in our RV from now on, but that is OK, just think of the quilt projects I can do this winter (joke as I am sure there will be some sort of interruption that will continue to keep me behind the power curve).  I have not accomplished a lot of hand work this last cycle or the last week!  So here goes a repeat of a repeat!  Well, I did finish one block for Celebrating Mary Brown – the Pineapple.  I did not like the original and changed mine – you can read what I did HERE.

Old Pineapple

New Pineapple

IF I would only stay away from foods that I KNOW my body does not like, I would probably have more completed, but that piece of sausage and those wonderful corn tortillas were just too tempting.  Guess my new 2020 goal is to eat paper!  Just think if I felt great each day I could make more quilts – FASTER!  LOL  Back to eggs, chicken, and potatoes and lots of decaf coffee and water!  BORING!

Have a great Christmas week – maybe I will catch up with more of my UFO’s while everyone is either traveling or visiting this week.  Stay safe and stay healthy!



This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  1. Oh ~ don’t mention foods we shouldn’t be eating, lol. A wonderful Christmas week to you and lots of great progress on your projects too. And I do love the newer pineapple! Hugs


  2. Very beautiful stitching! I had some sausage the other night and was awake all night with pain in my stomach. Hope you fare better this week, and have a very Merry Christmas!


    1. Thank you Karrin – I need to do the vines, maybe this week… Pork is one of the most difficult meats to digest. I have to stay away from all sugars, salt and anything with preservatives. Which is all but real chicken, potatoes, and eggs! It is the nitrates and fat! Take care and have a Merry Christmas!


  3. Oh, if only paper was delicious! Your pineapples are fabulous. I too, love quiet Christmases. May your Christmas be a lovely one.


  4. I like the newer pineapple better the other is over done. I think sometimes my food without salt tastes like paper.. 😁 Merry Christmas and enjoy your sewing!


    1. Thx Deb – you can hardly see the pineapple from the leaves. I did not like the way the curves on the leaves went either – not smooth – No condiments for me – guess that is why I quilt to keep my mind off what I cannot eat! LOL. Hugs Have a wonderful Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you Robin! I had order 2 different fabrics and they did not work – BUT I found part of a fat quarter in my “old” stash drawer and it fits great and will go well with the sunflowers!


  5. Pretty yellow fabric used for the pineapple.
    Please share some of your paper recipes you will be fixing for your meals this coming year!


  6. The new pineapple is so much nicer than that crazy shrub original! Your Christmas plans sound lovely and quiet. I am finally catching up, Girl #1 has been here for a couple of days, but leaves tomorrow, and then it will be an all craft weekend and week for me!
