Slow Sunday Stitching, etc – 24 April 2022

Happy Sunday to all! It has been a busy week but nothing stressful! Walking is on track, but there are some days I take off due to the high humidity and 70 degrees in the morning. I am not sure but I guess at 77 it is OK to take a day off from exercise when I am tired and today is one of those ”age” days! We are hoping for some rain the next 2 days – time will tell! It would be nice since we have only had about 3 inches since last October 2021! Drought city

On the fun side of life I have been working on a small Counted Cross Stitch project. It should have been finished by now, but some evenings I just wanted to veg!! I have learned to outline with a back stitch and a long stitch! Outlining the glasses will be tricky as I think I put the ”wine” too close together. But this is the way I learn how to do things – make mistakes and never do it again! LOL

I would like to start on a needle turn applique project. The choices are Lily Rosenberry by Sue Garman, In My Garden by Dawn Heese, or continue on with my Mary Brown quilt. I have finished 16 blocks (all corner blocks of this quilt in 2020).

Looks like fun!

Have a great Sunday and week! Happy Stitching

  1. Your cross stitch will be so cute! I love the 3 quilts your deciding which to work on. I’d pick #2 or #3. I’m hoping to spend some time in my sewing room cutting out blocks for a churn dash I’m working on. Have a great day! Hugs,


    1. Thank you – it was a cute pattern to practice with since I am a beginner. Number 1 is the most difficult. Tazzie from Tazzie Quilts is making it and she got me thinking about it. I love the bunnies as Jaydee made this one years ago and Dawn put the pattern out in her new book. A small group of us started poor Mary Brown and we all faded away except one. Think it was Log Cabin Quilter.


  2. I always thought I would applicate later in life. Well, I am at later in life and find I don’t like doing it….. Your items are beautiful.


    1. Well, I found it too. If I did not have the problem with potassium and foods, I think I would be fine! I will have to slow down my pace on the summer days (drat) and maybe I can at least do my walk without losing potassium! Hugs and hang in there. Thank you for the compliment! Hugs


  3. I’d go with In the Garden for your next applique project. Lily Rosenberry is a beautiful quilt but it is going to take a long time, I know I’d get tired of all those tiny circles. It seems like you’re tired of Mary Brown or you wouldn’t have put it aside. Happy stitching with whatever you select!


    1. I love the bunnies in the Garden quilt and it is not a difficult one. I really like putting the 4 corners together and make a wall hanging. That way I am ‘caught’ up with all. I agree on the Mary Brown. Have a wonderful day – time for choosing the squares for the border. Hugs


      1. I really like the In My Garden pattern. But I’m headed to retreat this week in Shipshewana, who knows what treasures I’ll find on the resale table. Happy stitching!


  4. Your cross stitching is really taking off. You’ve sure gotten the hang of it. Hope you get some rain to cool down your temps and bring some relief. Have a good week!


    1. Thank you Sharon, I am finding that I can easily become addicted to it! But I really need to work on an applique project too. Just not enough time is there. We really need the rain! Have a great week! Hugs


  5. 🤓love your glasses project,I think I need to see your doctor.😁 oh my all that appliqué would give me a migraine. You amaze me how you do the appliqué so well.🤗


  6. Beautiful cross stitching! Both appliqué projects are lovely, whatever you choose, it’s going to be a beautiful quilt (or maybe two beautiful appliqué quilts?)
    Thanks for sharing, and linking up 😉
