Slow Sunday Stitching

Before I tell you about my slow stitching I have a message for my email subscribers. Feedburner is ending and so I needed to find a new platform for the email subscriptions. I have moved them to  They provide a service where followers and emails are unlimited, and it's free! I've added a "subscribe by email" gadget to the right side bar. Those of you who are already receiving emails should continue to receive them because the helpful folks at helped me export my subscriber list to their service. This means you shouldn't experience any problems and emails should arrive in your inbox. If you want to follow by email just subscribe using the gadget. Thank goodness for I was starting to worry I wouldn't get it all sorted out in time.

I've been working on blocks for a Pride and Prejudice quilt. These blocks do stitch up quite quickly, are portable and easy to pick up even after not working on them for several days. It's easy to see how far you've got and what's left to do. I've been working on the block for May and I'd hoped to finish it this evening but I was out in the sun earlier today and I now I have a headache. The stitching will be finished tomorrow. Here it is so far. I took it out of the hoop so you could see my progress better.

Just their heads to complete. I have another small piece that I shall stitch next, before I work on the June block. I'm really looking forward to stitching these happy frog blocks. They are supposed to be done all in green but I'm going to add some other colours, after all the flower on the waterlily is crying out to be a pretty yellow or even white.

I have several photos to share with you but they will have to wait as I've managed to misplace the lead for connecting the camera to the computer. I'll find it tomorrow when I get home from work. Unfortunately tomorrow I have to travel into work on the train as there is no parking available due to a large crane in the car park. I'm not really looking forward to it as the weather is supposed to be very hot again, plus I'm not sure how crowded the train will be. Hopefully it won't be too bad.

I'm linking this post with Kathy from Kathy's quilts for her Slow Sunday Stitching

Take Care



  1. Best of luck with your train trip to work (and with finding that camera cord afterwards.)

  2. Sounds like a bit of a hassle for you this week with train travel, lost bits & sorting the email problem. I'm late commenting due to flood & wind damage here in south east Victoria from storms & have only had intermittent i'net. Your blocks are coming along nicely. Take care & hugs.
