Slow-ly Stitching .....

Sunday is the day we join Kathy's Quilts in the celebration of Slow Stitching!  In my case, I have to admit it is more like Slow-ly Stitching!

Rosette #2 in progress
Center and Round #1 attached
Round #2 hexie units are assembled and in place on the design wall, but not yet sewn together
That pukey yellow above is what I get when I try to take a picture close up and face on.  I tried it with three different cameras and finally gave up.  This picture is closer to the actual colors.....



I've shared my current obsession handwork project with you before ... The New Hexagon - Millefiore designed by Katja Marek.  And I am still having a ball playing with these wonderful rosettes!  However, progress on Mille goes very slowly, at least mine do at any rate.  I am still plugging along on Rosette #2, while many I see on Facebook have done all 5 rosettes and are drumming their fingers, impatiently awaiting the unveiling of #6 tomorrow.  I even know of a few who have made extra rosettes while waiting for the next one to be presented!  (Bear in mind, the rosettes are 36" wide!!!)  Yes, these people obviously have no life LOL!!!


What you see here in the bottom of my hand-sewing basket are the pieces for the Round #3 hexies that still need to be sewn together.  YAY!  It is indeed getting slim pickin's in there!  I can actually see the bottom :*)


These Round #2 hexie units are all stitched together, but they still need to be attached to the center round (see first picture).  And then the Round #3 hexies - the ones still in the basket - will be added after that.  Quite a bit still needing to be done, but it will be an enjoyable journey of slow stitching all the way ♥

What's in your basket???  
See all the wonderful projects at Kathy's Quilts!

  15. Wow when it comes together it is going to be spectacular! I always love that moment in making a project. With slow stitching just enjoy the stitches today and eventually the big prize of a finish will happen.

  16. Wow, what absolutely fabulous fussy cutting! I can NOT wait to see this all come together ... it's going to be breath-taking! I love EPP, but I'm not sure I have what it takes to make something of this magnitude. Wow

  23. Beautiful! Just think, the slower you stitch these rosettes the more time you have to admire all the wonderful colors of the fabrics you've chosen and the nice, neat little tiny stitches that are being made. I think they are the cat's meow.
