Slow Sunday Stitching-27 March 2022

Greetings – summer is just around the corner now. The temperature is starting to go up in the early mornings. Pleasant walk today, but doing that power walk really makes one sweat! Difficult to believe that we are going into the 2nd quarter of 2022. Time flies when you have so much fun!

I have finished my 2nd Counted Cross Stitch project. This pattern was a free download from the Fat Quarter Shop. I changed all the colors in mine to be more vibrant. I will order a frame for it this week.

Love

Next on the list was to do something with the 4 blocks I had made when I started and finished Alaska. I named it Memories of Alaska

In 2014 I had 7 quilts quilted by a professional quilter. I have 4 of the 7 left to bind! (Shame on me). I started on one a couple of weeks ago and am going to try to finish it this week in the evenings now that I have finished “Love”. I love this Southwest quilt as it will be large enough for me to use on our California King. I am not certain, but think it is an Atkinson Design quilt.

Today I want to work on Sentimental Scraps (a Sitar pattern that you cannot mess up with just 9 patches and squares).

Sentimental Stitches from Quiltmania Magazine

MAYBE this week will be quieter (no appointments, no commitments, no cleaning up of other’s mistakes) and I will be able to finish the top and then begin to put Stars Around the Garden quilt together. This would be 2 more quilts for Tammy! Yea! I am ready to move on to new projects.

Have a great week! Hugs

  1. Okay, it was just snowing outside my window here in NY and tomorrow it is not supposed to get above freezing. It does NOT feel like Spring here. I love those quilts. Enjoy adding the binding and finally finishing them. Your cross-stitch is wonderful too.

  2. Your cross stitch turned out so pretty, I like the colors you used. The southwest quilt is gorgeous! I like the title Memories of Alaska blocks.
    It was 86 here yesterday – ugh! At least it gets cool at night. We woke up to 49 this morning. Thunder boomers due here tomorrow night – spring has begun!

    1. Thank you Linda. I love the quilt also. It was not a difficult one to make, but now to have to rip the binding out….should I say more? LOL. It was 68 this morning for my walk. Tomorrow it will be cooler in the mornings the rest of the week. We are getting leaves on the trees – and of course lots of wind. (Had problems with Replying so am late in responding – sorry. Hugs

    1. Thank you Ms Kathy! I will quilt the AM some day. SS and the Southwest quilt will be in the ripping stages to correct issues on both, but that is good for this week brainless work. Hugs and love that little Bandit!

  3. Lovely Cross stitch finish, Nanette. Memory of Alaska is so pretty too. So sorry about Alaska pattern which is so beautiful. But quilting should be stress free! Jaydee’s quilt is beautiful all right. We are edging towards spring and looking forward to the change in season. Doing some spring clearing out which is always a good thing.

    1. Thank you Jocelyn. Well, I have learned that when I hit a back pattern, I am out of there! Yes Jaydee is a Master quilter and does beautiful designing and quilting. Spring is almost here. More wind that ever and in a drought. Maybe some rain tonight, but doubtful. Have a great week, sorry for late response. Hugs

  4. Your Counted Cross Stitch is lovely, well done! Memories of Alaska is just the perfect pale blue that reminds me Alaskan icebergs and glaciers 😉
