Today is the 7th anniversary of Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching Link up! She has been inspiring me and many others to slow down and work on a handwork project with each and every link up! Kathy has asked us to share our favourite handwork project on our blogs today ---But first, I want to show you my slow progress on the Waterlilies Frank Lloyd Wright cross stitch I have been working on. I added some more outlining this past week as well as some more cross stitching in the upper right corner.
When we went to Nashville for QuiltCon earlier this year, we visited the Tennessee State Museum and I purchased this print in the gift shop. I finally had it framed and it is now hanging on the wall. It gives a whole new meaning to "Barn Quilt". (I took the picture on the floor as there was too much glare when it was on the wall.)
I seemed to be attracted to quilt themed cross stitch patterns years ago... The next one was a purchased pattern and took over a year to make. This one is hanging in our family room.
One of my early cross stitch pictures is on the wall in my sewing room. No quilt in this one, but there is an old treadle sewing machine. I have my grandmother's treadle sewing machine in my dining room.
I made several other pictures as well, many of which were given away as gifts. My daughter and each of my twin nieces have counted cross stitch Christmas stockings as well.
Finn is enjoying the longer summer evenings and going for walks.
My honeysuckle started blooming this week. The major garden projects are done and now we just have to do maintenance jobs for the summer. I'm looking forward to slow stitching in the gazebo sometime soon.
