Wall in progress

Do you remember, in February after I had the flu, I said I was going back to basics: piecing one project, quilting one.  That worked well: I liked the simplicity and the clarity of it.  But I just did a count and somehow those two projects have multiplied and by my count I now have seven things on the go.  Ho hum.  Still, I am at least feeling on top of things still.  My 365 circles are up to date, I finished stitching the binding on my applique yesterday and current quilt in the hoop is progressing nicely.

A couple of quick progress shots for Slow Sunday Stitching:

  1. Nothing beats the texture of hand stitching... looks wonderful!
    Do you draw your quilting lines first or eyeball where to stitch?

  4. That frequently happens to me - I decide to limit the number of projects I am going to work on, and instead of it helping, I wind up STARTING more projects, so I end up with even more to work on. I am glad you are feeling that you can be on top of them.

  8. Beautiful stitches. As long as you feel you are in control, that is all that matters. It's when we start feeling over-whelmed is a problem.

    I love the look of this quilt.

  17. Lovely neat stitches! It's amazing to actually count up how many projects are lurking away, far more than we think we have.
