Today is the Slow Sunday Stitching linkup over at Kathy's blog. There, she encourages us each week to slow down and do some hand stitching. I have not had a specific long term hand stitching project this summer but I am happy to be able to participate this week. I will be finishing off the hand stitching on the binding of my Modern Wedge quilt.
My husband and I went for a 15km bike ride last night and then sat in the gazebo for an hour until it got too dark to sew and read. The gazebo is a wonderful place to stitch--we have a bubbling rock nearby which makes a wonderful sound, the birds sing in the trees, and the chipmunks and squirrels scurry around the yard for our entertainment.
I decided to match the binding to the background and the wedges...it took a little longer than usual to make and attach the binding by machine yesterday. Today, I will finish off the hand stitching and take some pictures of the finished quilt for a future blog post. Have a great day!
