Slow Lunch Breaks

I haven't been sewing much this past week, but I have been slow stitching during my lunch breaks at work. :^D

Since I can't bring the old quilt at work to work on, I brought something much more portable. My MIL table runner. Yep, finally working on this one. I kind of resurrected this one and started working on the appliques.

Sorry if the pictures aren't the best, they were taken with my phone.  Click to enlarge.

I started in the middle of the vine and I'm slowly working my way to the edge. I will pull some fabric out to be used for prepping of the leaves ... hopefully this afternoon.

Don't know if this count as slow stitching ....
but I have been working on some more towels. It uses a very big "needle" to shuttle the thread from one side to the other, hehehe! Don't mind the hot pink piece of rag in there. It is where the piece will be cut, to separate my work from the previous lady's work. The red row you see is my edging. It's the first time I do it this way. It's a little bit like embroidery. It finishes the towel so nicely. My stitches are not very even yet. You can see her beautiful blue edging at the bottom of the picture. I'll show you more of mine next time.

Joining Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching where there's lots of wonderful project made by hand to be seen.

Until next time ...

Slow Progress

Since this is my first try at repairing an old quilt, progress is slow but it's progressing nevertheless.

I have figured out that if I sew all the components together before, it is easier to applique after. I am learning, I am learning ... slowly but surely.  :^D

(If you want to see the beginning of this adventure, see this post.)

Teaming up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. Come and see us.

Until next time ....
