Slow stitching

I haven’t been doing a lot of sewing lately after reaching a bit of a hiatus in my Drunkard’s Path quilt.  I have however, been doing some simple sewing by stitching improv solid scrap stripes which will one day become a quilt.

imageI sorted all my solid scraps into colours and then just started making stripes the lengths of the scraps.  It’s a nice, almost mindless activity which I can do when I’m tired and not feeling very creative.  I hope it will be transformed into a bright and cheerful quilt one day.

I’m also doing a small embroidery project. I  found this linen piece when I did a recent tidy up, I think it came as a gift with a magazine, and have been doing a little when I’m in the mood for handwork.

I’ve discovered I’m fairly hopeless at consistent stitches and have no real idea of which stitch to use for what, but I’m enjoying it nevertheless. image

 

“The boys” like me doing it because I sit still and they can have a lap if they want, but Cosmo prefers close supervision from nearby! 🙂
