Morning coffees and stitching in the slow lane

I have so enjoyed my morning stitches this week. 
My hands have been sore and troublesome. It is winter, and winter and I are not the best of friends. 
Before Covid, we used to spend time in warmer climate a week or two during winter. I really hope that can be reality again next winter.

See what happens when I am just stitching away? Two different sizes! 
Since I did mark the cutting point on each, there is no workaround. I have already enlarged the right motif and traced it for stitching again.
Applique did not happen this week as planned , but I have gone through some om my unfinished object boxes, and I truly can see a trend. 
Several of my half done projects have elements of applique. 

Stonefield will be on hold for a little while yet, while I sort out a couple of the other projects that lacks less. One of the less work intensive projects is Raspberry Tea Quilt from Sue Daley. 
I lack 4 applique blocks + joining. I can do it! I know I have done one of the four blocks, but I can not find it anywhere, so it is time to suck it up and make four.

A goal I have for 2022 is to use fabric for care quilts. I am part of a lovely group that meats twice a year for a day retreat weekend.
I like best to make quilt tops, others do machine quilting, some do cutting - we are a great team.

The other day I cut and made this care quilt top. I honestly can not see in my soft pink stash that much have been taken from it. I can easily make more without running out of soft pink.....

It was nice to work on my sewing machine again. I have some catching up to do 💗

TGIF - wishing you a good weekend! 



  1. I love all the pink. Your stitcheries are adorable. Enjoy!

  2. I thought I was the only one who marked embroideries the wrong size! I love your Sue Daley blocks. I hope you can find the missing block before you finish the other 3 applique blocks. I've been trying to sew only from my stash the last 2 years! I can't see that the stash has been reduced by very much. Happy stitching!

  3. The pink quilt looks lovely. Cute stitcheries & love your raspberry blocks. Hope you find the missing one. Hugs, xx

  4. I loved stitching those little bugs at the top........not sure how the size can change so much on the other ones......bummer......
    goodluck on your sue Daley quilt........I made a quilt using that range of fabrics it was so pretty....
    pretty pink have a lovely collection of pinks......

  5. They are very cute stitcheries, even if you do have to have a do over with the turned out too small one...the Sue Daley quilt is looking lovely, such a nice combo raspberry/pink/red and white...very pretty care quilt top, such soft and gentle colours...
