Slow Stitching Sunday
Whenever I just need to sit down and do some slow stitching I have been working on quilting my yellow paisley Seven Sisters quilt. I have been making slow but steady progress and I am now beginning to see the end - just look at that bottom edge. I have just over 2.5 rows left to quilt and I am getting really excited to see it finished. It just may drive me to do some marathon slow stitching over the next week or so. My quilt is approximately 74" wide and I am quilting it rather densely with Baptist Fans so I hope I am not being too optimistic in thinking that I can have it completely finished by the end of the month. I guess it wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have so many other projects that I want to work on as well!
Today I will be making pumpkin pies and doing as much prep work as I can for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. I also need to do some cleaning and laundry but I will still make sure I take time to do some hand quilting today.
