Not much slow stitching planned for today. I do want to get the binding stitched down on my table topper. I made it early this week to practice my machine quilting. I am pleased so far with the results but this is a very small project.
I also need to work on Block #23. I use the back basting method to add the buds and bud covers. I find it is a great method to make sure you get the pieces right where you want them. For those of you that are afraid to try applique, did you know the stitch you use to stitch down binding is the same stitch appliquers use in their applique!
I also need to thread up some needles and put in a few hand quilting in the current quilt in the hoop. When working on so many different projects it can make it seem like things never get done. But I have come to a point in life, that I guess I understand it isn't about how fast but enjoying the process along the way. I have also learned that if we keep putting a few slow stitches daily, things do get done! I am linking up with Kathy today to see what others are slow stitching.
