HQAL and Slow Sunday Stitching – 3 July 2022

It is now 4 July 2022. I have been working on my Wedding Quilt and my Churn Dash SAL projects, along with my Bat’s and Boo’s cross stitch. I have finished the pumpkins and starting on the Bats!

This is the pattern from Cross Stitch

Here is where I am on this reporting time. Now that I have started on the bats, the others will go faster! Getting the hang of it now!

I have now decided that I really need to start on some hand quilting so I can prove I can hand quilt – LOL! I have a wall hanging that I think I will start on. All the HQAL ladies are really making me miss my hand quilting time. (Maybe I can set the alarm for 2AM and quilt an hour and go back to sleep – now that is really a JOKE! ) See I think I was going to hand quilt it last year – already basted and ready for me!!!! Yea

Oh yes – weather report! Hot, Dry, and Hotter. I gave up on walking today – it is 4th of July so I will celebrate our freedoms by not walk! We are heading into another brutal weather week – my prediction is that we will go over the 114 high for June! The good news is that we are now going into the hottest 2 months of the year (good news??? Really). Cabin Fever feeling gone, so I have more energy for my hobbies! I am back to me and it feels good the only thing lacking is finding a quilting who lives close and loves to quilt! (Won’t happen here in LV)

Have a great week!

Hugs, Nanette

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. Beautiful cross stitch projects and quilt to hand quilt. We have gotten a break the past couple of days from the heat, there was even a cool breeze yesterday afternoon. Happy 4th of July!


  2. Your Bats and Boos is really coming along. The feathered star is pretty!
    Your xero-scape was a great idea. Ours is going to be weather-scaped by the time this brutal heat is over. Autumn can’t come quickly enough – and I bet it’s late this year.


    1. Thx It is 3 pm and 105 degrees Grrr I am going to have to not walk the rest of the week Brutal weather No rain either Good luck on your surgery tomorrow. Let me know how you are doing!


  3. The feather star is beautiful! 👏😊glad your joining us in the good old fashion way of quilting. You are getting the hang of cross stitching.🤗


  4. Love seeing your progress on the cross stitch. We have hit a very humid spell, the air was so thick yesterday and I think it will be the same today.
