Slow Sunday Stitching

Welcome to the regular weekly practice of relaxing with some hand stitching! We encourage you to join us... all you have to do is take a deep breath, find your hand stitching project and put in some stitches. Easy peasy!
In Canada this is called "labour day" weekend, which marks the unofficial end of summer and the beginning of the fall school semester. In years gone by people would use this day to campaign for better working conditions, and some unions do have marches planned for Monday. But for most people it's just a day off work to relax and enjoy a rest from their labours. Of course I'm hoping to get in some serious "work" time in the sewing room!
I am really trying to practice what I preach regarding the value of "one stitch at a time". A whole week has passed and I haven't even finished quilting another Life is Beautiful block. I haven't fixed the block from last week either. I have been slowly putting stitches in this block and it is a few diagonal seams away from a finish. 
I remind myself to be satisfied with any progress.

What are you hand stitching today? Post a link to your blog post and show us your project so we can cheer you on!

  9. I will hand stitching my quilt for the first time. I want to know: how far apart do you baste the quilt with thread? I'm basting mine each 2 inches between stitch from top to bottom. Will I need to do the same thing from left to right? Thank you in advance for your response. It will help me a lot...
