I've had a lovely slow day today. It's been a little manic recently here with doing some additional work of training volunteers to give the covid vaccine. It's been tiring but fun and all the volunteers were excited to be able to help. I also had several of them ask me how they can become a nurse, so training and recruitment all rolled into one. John had his 1st vaccination last Saturday and has been absolutely fine. He didn't even have a sore arm the following day.
This month my friend Sherry from Quilts, Fabric and Thread tales and I started our own stitch along. We are stitching a block a month from this Pride and Prejudice pattern.
For January we stitched Jane and Elizabeth Bennett. These are nice embroideries to do and don't take too long. I had meant to finish this earlier in the month but I got caught up by other things and so today I sat and stitched the final area. This didn't take long as all I had to do was both their heads.
I need to press the piece and put it safely away until they are all completed. I also need to draw out the second piece. In February we are going to stitch Darcy talking to Bingley which is the embroidery in the centre of the top row. The Jane and Lizzie embroidery was my monthly goal for January.
This evening I'll be stitching down the bindings on the baby quilt. I also need to make a label for this quilt.
I enjoy stitching the binding on. I can stitch and watch the TV at the same time. No pattern to follow so the experience is relaxing.
