Slow Stitching Sunday

I have been doing plenty of fast stitching this weekend. I got this shelter quilt quilted.

I think some little boy will love this. Hopefully, it will make him feel a little less scared and a little more loved. I couldn’t help but think of my own two little grandsons as I worked on this. Quilting a pantograph is great praying time!
I also got this one started.

Hubby and I got hooked on the show Lost last spring. Then came the flood and summer and we took a long break from it. Recently we started watching again. I am sure we will watch a couple episodes today and I am ready with some hand stitching. First, my hexies.

And also a little experiment using the octagon template that came in the set I purchased last week.

It looks to be another beautiful fall day here today. The trees in my backyard are turning and falling.

Linking up with Kathy for Slow Stitching Sunday.

    Hi, Katy; I always enjoy seeing all your projects. Mine go much slower than yours. I noticed on your hexies, there are seam lines drawn in. Do you do those by hand? Carol

  3. Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and the slow stitching today!

    Can’t wait to see what you do with the hexies! I’m finding the beautiful trees to be a bit of a distraction–I just want to walk in the leaves and crunch them as I go–so fun and smells like autumn!

    Someone will definitely get some comfort out of your quilt. Reminds me that it’s time for me to do some more baby quilts for our local children’s hospital. It’s beautiful day here as well.

    That shelter quilt is adorable … what a blessing it will be for some little guy!

    The leaves are starting to turn here, too. I love all the color of fall.
