Slow Sewing.....

I have decided, with three months of the year almost 

over and little to show for it,

that this is "The Year of Slow Sewing"......

I have at least finished the second of two bibs.....

The Easter bunny stopped by.....

hand pieced three circle blocks for my 

Museum Medallion,

At this rate, it will be at least May before this round is finished!

and am EPPing some little hexies!


My Juki is feeling very neglected!

That's okay, its first term holidays next week, so 

there will lots more sewing time!

Yippee!

Now I just need to decide what quilt to make next!

Happy sewing!

  1. The pink cherry print is=n your Museum Medallion is the same range (Sew Cherry) as the white cherry print in my quilt! The bibs looks great and also practical. Hexies are timeless aren't they - these seem like a nice small size but not too small

  3. Couldnt agree more, sewing a quilt on machine in a week is no fun, far better to sew some love and go slow, I blame the online world for the hurry! Hope you weekend is nice n stitchy!

  8. It's been a slow sewing year for me so far too, and I think that I need to realize, like you did, that it's okay!!

  17. After a couple of months of trying to meet deadlines with my sewing I have decided that slow sewing is the way to go - it is supposed to be relaxing after all!

  18. Oh my goodness, if you think you're slow, you should pop over and see me! I think you're doing great guns (but I also think slow sewing is pretty awesome too.)

  20. I think Slow Sewing works for me too! I must confess...it is nice to sit back a watch from the sidelines sometimes. Baby bibs??? Hmmmmm....news???? I can't wait to see this Medallion quilt all together. Really amazing, Susan. And the hexies on the linen are so sweet. Slow is working for you!

  22. Hi Susan. I'm catching up with some long overdue blog reading of fellow Mid Century bee quilters. I sometimes feel like all my sewing is slow going . . . or at least my blogging is certainly slow going. Found your recent post regarding Kaffe interesting. I'm in the love him camp. Love most of his fabrics although not always the colors. Have many of his books but have never made one of his designs as I always want to design my own.

  23. Slow Sewing. What a nice thought.

    I was doing almost No Sewing last fall (a new class, too much work!) and now am about all caught up. I'm probably headed into some Slow Sewing myself, with papers coming in Thursday that will keep me grading all weekend.

    I'll be happy to get back to the cloth.
