Slow Sunday Stitching

     It's been Slow Stitching  Sunday, Slow Stitching Monday, Slow Stitching Tuesday....you get the picture, with a few days off here and there.    That sentence makes it sound like its been drudgery but   I have to say I've enjoyed every minute of it.



     I've chipped away at outlining the arcs of the double wedding ring in small doses and I'm happy to say I've got the quilting on this little wall hanging done three weeks before the wedding.  I was hoping to have the binding attached by today but yesterday Wendy, and Cyndy and I spent the day doing the last leg of the July shop hop here in Southern Ontario.  Almost all the shops in the July Shop Hop were also in the Row by Row , so we tossed in a few shops that were only in the Row by Row. We visited 16 shops over 3 days. It was lots of fun but pretty intense.  All three of us felt an emotional let down after we handed in our passports at the last July Shop Hop store yesterday.  How funny is that!  


     Here's my binding ready to sew onto the quilt.  I'd like to say that I'll get right on it and start slow stitching the binding today but I volunteered to go into work today so that the younger staff at our store could attend the local music festival.  That's o.k. as I get Thursday off instead which  with the holiday on Monday will give me a 5 day weekend! Whoopee!  I'll probably squish a visit to Toronto in there somewhere and possibly a visit to Lake Huron on Monday.....but that will leave me plenty of time to work in the garden and do some sewing.  I'm linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy's blog.

  10. Your shop hop with friends sounds great. I wish I had loads of shops within easy distance, but they are a bit sparse here. Enjoy your 5 day weekend :-)
