Slow Sunday Stitching

I haven't blogged for awhile - I didn't realize how long until I checked my last date.

I have been sewing - a bit - though. I wasn't in the mood or busy for a bit, but I'm back at it again.

Here's the progress on my Winter Wonderland

Sorry it's rotated - it looks fine on my computer, but rotates in the blog.

I'm making progress, just slower than I was. I'm still enjoying it so I keep plugging away.

I looked for something a little more seasonal when I was at the Creative Festival last weekend but I was sadly disappointed. My next hand project will be a La Passacaglia and I'm determined to finish this one first.

I had to buy more embroidery floss. This time I pre-washed it with vinegar, instead of the chemical (retayne) I used before. The thread was bearding a bit and I wondered if it was the chemical. There didn't seem to be any running with the vinegar, so all is well.

I'm linking up with Kathy.


  1. This is looking good even side ways on!

  2. I am working on this one too and I agree it does seem to go slowly especially the pine branches. I am using Aurifil #12 weight thread to do the embroidery. A guild member uses it and I thought I would try it.I am doing mine in blue!

  3. It's very pretty, Anita!

  4. I really like this block. I can't wait to see the finished result. Vinegar was a smart substitution...does it leave an odour at all?
