Slow Sunday Stitching
I want to finish this row before I go to bed tonight.
It was another sleepless night and in the wee hours this morning I could be found in the living room on the couch watching TV and hand quilting my Seven Sisters quilt. I am making very slow but steady progress and I am enjoying taking every stitch. I guess it could still be considered Slow Sunday Stitching even if it wasn't during daylight hours! Thank goodness I have a wonderful floor lamp that simulates daylight and it allows me to hand sew during the darker hours. My husband gave me the lamp as a gift several years ago but I think he uses it just as much as I do, maybe even more.
I still need to tuck in the thread tails.
Later today I plan to start hand stitching the binding on my Linked quilt. I had intended to give it my friend Evelyn a couple weeks ago but things didn't go as planned. I did get as far as sewing the binding to the front and adding the label, so after a few binding sessions I should have it done and ready to go to it's new home.
