Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the weekly celebration of the art of slowly stitching by hand! We encourage you to slow down, breathe deeply, take a few stitches, and enjoy seeing the slowly created projects of hand stitching gurus from around the world.

I had a terrible flare of "gettingthingsdoneitis" this month, with many deadlines and not enough time. So now I have to recuperate, slow down and get myself calmed down. A few more embroidery stitches will be put into this Life Is Beautiful block. In fact my plan is to deliberately move SLOWLY like a sloth for the entire day. 
It used to be that the animal symbols of being slow were the turtle and the snail. But more recently the sloth has become the representative of slowness. Have you seen the Zootopia movie? Here's my favourite scene of sloths at the DMV:


It's Sunday, so slow down and stitch like a sloth!
And then link up your blog post below and share your slow stitching project with us.

  1. LOL on the flare of "gettingthingsdoneitis". I've had that before. It one of those things that comes back too. Mine usually happens around the dishes, laundry, and other chores when I have a bunch of quilting projects on the brain. Get well soon. Haha.
