Slow Stitching

Yesterday was a fun day with a guild bee working on Ronald McDonald House quilts. A good time with good people. I really enjoyed myself and we got quite a bit done for Ronald McDonald House. Next Sunday will be our monthly RMH Sit and Sew at Joann’s, so we’ll get more quilting for charity done.

I was pretty focused on Halloween this week, and I was able to get a bit of hand stitching in. I finished up the HocusPocusVille block I was working on…

I have the next one ready to go. It is a pretty big design with lots of detail so it may take me a while to complete it. I may start heading to the Tuesday Bee our guild has just so I will make the time to work on it!

I also did some more work on my Butterfly Sampler…

I only have to put the antennae and do the antennae embroidery on four more butterflies. Once that is done I will start adding some cotton applique on top of the wool butterflies. I hope to finish the antennae this afternoon.

I will be linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching and Super Mom – No Cape on Monday for the Stitchery LinkParty.
