Slow Sunday Stitching

Most of my recent slow stitching involved applique ( previous post ) but I did manage to add a few stitches to the Botanical quilt the other day.

I’ll be hand quilting more on this block for my Slow Sunday Stitching.

Meanwhile, the weather has been so mild this week that not only are most of the flowers still blooming, some are coming into bloom! On my walk yesterday I noticed a neighbor had day lilies coming in to bloom, and here is an orange coneflower of mine coming back as well.

It went close to 80 degrees yesterday and we’ll see more of the same today. I think that I’ll be quilting out on the front porch :)

    Beautiful days here today and yesterday. That’s supposed to end with possible snow next weekend – yuck! I bought the grandkids cute costumes but the fairy and Wonder Woman are sleeveless – won’t be any fun trick-or-treating in a heavy coat on top of those. First world problems, I know, but still….read the news….I’m desperate for anything lighthearted and “truthful!”

    Always fun to see what you are up to each week. I love the quilting! I have a day Lilly in bloom in my garden. No frost yet and quite warm today.

    Same here, Deb. Our garden is getting a second round late in October with these high temps. Odd…

    My husband and I just returned from a walk around our neighborhood and we were commenting on the fact that so many flowers are in bloom. Love your quilting.

  11. I adore that quilt! My coneflowers didn’t last long. And I thought they liked heat. I guess not in containers. I have other flowers coming back in the coolness though.

    Hope you enjoyed your slowing stitching today. Enjoy your warm weather. I’d prefer that over snow. :0)

    Hello, the quilt is beautiful, lovely stitches. We are enjoying the warm weather too. I think it is supposed to end this week, we will have more fall like weather. It is nice to see the flowers still blooming.

    Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!
