Star Update

      It was a very lovely Saturday and I spent the early morning hours doing some slow stitching on my e.p.p. stars.  Here are the latest additions shown on my glass table top.



     Two blue stars and a grey and black one.  I felt that the mix so far was a little heavy on the reds and pinks as you can see below.


     I'm hoping for some more nice weather and some more time to sit and stitch in the backyard which has become my favourite place to be.   Hanging in the backyard helps to keep me calm when things get a little stressful.  I'm linking up with Kathy for Slow Stitching Sunday and with Jessica at the Monday Morning Star Count.

  3. Gorgeous stars. Will you be making a quilt with them? I like to sit and stitch on my deck and just listen to the sounds of nature.

  9. Stars are definitely on my EPP list. In the meantime I'm working on my Martha Washington's Flower Garden which is something of a star pattern. ;-) It's been delightful here, so I suspect that I'll be spending my afternoon out on the deck, basting the connector hexies for the aforementioned MWFG.

  10. Sounds lovely and relaxing. Trying to sit outdoors and sew here at the moment would require a windbreaker, heater and an umbrella!
