Slow Sunday stitching.

I love Sundays. They are usually quite slow and calm and today was no exception. I try not to do any work for work on a Sunday but I sometimes do some housework. Today I needed to do some ironing and then the rest of the day was mine. Oddly I enjoy ironing as I love  neatly ironed clothes with no creases - they feel so good to wear.

After the ironing John and I headed out for a walk. Today was another spring like day, it even smelt of spring! There were quite a few other people out walking but we managed to keep a healthy distance away from everyone. Today I noticed that some of the flowering trees were in bud.

Back at home I settled down to do some slow stitching. I needed to finish off stitching the binding down on the quilt for the Show your stripes hop that starts tomorrow. I'm hoping to have it fully completed by then but I don't think I will. You'll have to wait for a photo.

Over the week I've been working on the left front of my knitted jacket. I finished that on Friday evening and at some point next week I'll start the right front.

I've done a fair amount of mending this week. This really isn't my favourite activity but I needed to re-stitch the hem of one of my skirts, darn a hole in John's jumper having caught it on something sharp and sew on several buttons.

This year Sherry and I are working on 12 Pride and Prejudice embroidered blocks . We are stitching a block a month and this months block is of Bingley and Darcy talking with Lizzie sitting nearby. I haven't got very far with it as I've been working on other projects. This will get my full attention this week as I want to finish it before the end of the month. This is how far I've got so far.

This will all be stitched by next week.

I'm linking this post with Kathy from Kathy's Quilts for her Slow Sunday Stitching link up. 

Take care



  1. Can't wait for Spring to arrive, those buds are a sure sign. You are really making progress on your jacket, it's so pretty. It will surely make a lovely addition to your wardrobe. I plan to have my block finished by the end of the month I am trying to keep up with the Meg Hawley Sampler.

  2. Ugh to mending jobs!
    Love the Pride and Prejudice blocks and can't wait to see them!

  3. I rather enjoy ironing too! Your Pride and Prejudice blocks look fun, how nice to be stitching them together with a friend.
