Slow but Sure

I think that is probably the best way to describe my stitching at the present time - slow but sure. Well, it is certainly slow.

I've stitched some more on my BBD as part of the Needlecraft Haven SAL. I'm looking forward to finishing this as a small stocking.

At my sewing group, I'm working on this kit from Shepherd's Bush, Peace and Plenty. Given that we talk as much as we stitch, I am not working quickly on this one.

Later in the week I will spend a day finishing my stitched finishes. Among various things that I could complete, my priority will be my two exchange pieces - the stitching is done, they just need to be made into something!

I follow some wonderful blogs but today I'd like to mention 'Stitches by Carin'. I've only recently discovered this blog and she has the most beautiful finishes. I will be looking at them in the future for inspiration on how to finish my stitching.


  1. Beautiful work and as they say 'slow & steady wins the race'

  2. If you chat as much as we do at our craft club I fully understand slow stitching... I always end up frogging what I've done as I miscount lol.
    Both nice projects.

  3. Beautiful stiching Mary :)
    I think slow and steady is a good thing! You get to enjoy the process that way

  4. Two beautiful projects you are working on right now. And why not slow and steady? It also leads to your goal.

  5. I love both of these projects, Mary! And Carin's blog is wonderful--I'm always amazed at how quickly she finished her little pillows and ornaments :)


Thank you for reading and leaving a comment.

It is lovely to hear what you think.
