Slow Sunday Stitching

It's Sunday again, so that means it's time to S L O W down and do some relaxing stitching. 
I am delighted to have finished the machine quilting on my Votes For Women quilt this week. It is time to step away from the machine, unplug everything, breath deep, and relax with hand stitching this binding.  I will savour every stitch because this has been 5 years in the making and it was worth the wait!

What project have you been working on for a long time? Get it out and put in some stitches. I guarantee you will feel calmer, and enjoy the satisfaction of making some slow progress. 
We love to see what you're being inspired by today, so link up your blog post below and show us the project you are hand stitching.

  3. Sewing the binding always seems like the longest part of the project! By that time I'm just itching to have the quilt finished. Yet I do love a hand-stitched binding and always do that for my own quilts too.

  11. Great to see you got the binding started. So nice to get to that step. I was planning to do that quilt but only got 3 blocks done, guess they are in the orphan block pile.

  12. Been at the hunt camp all week making maple syrup. I took a few projects with me including my hexies. I stitched and stitched till I ran out of papers and fabric. Then it was time to knit.
