Slow Sunday Stitching

Keeping needle and thread handy at the dining room table means I took a few stitches multiple days during my lunch break.  Today I completed the "stamp" edge outline during some Slow Sunday Stitching.  This Lizzie Kate cross-stitch's details are filling in--now there are birdie feet and a tree branch added today too. 


This week's lunch stitching should complete this little project as the leaf and birdie details won't take long, and after I add the month name in the bottom the fill-in will be fairly mindless.  I'll try not to jump ahead in thinking of What To Stitch Next, though I have in mind to make a black-work monogram initial for my younger grandson's Hunter's room. His older brother Cove has this Fox that I stitched for his room when he was born:


Hunter, who turned one several weeks ago, is now taking a few steps.  I visited those precious boys on Friday and Hunter took a bunch of steps to get to me--his Mama said it was the best he had walked yet!  Loved that.  Then we all played in the backyard for awhile and I chased Cove around, and hefted Hunter on the slide and swing.  My arms sure were sore later.  Here's Hunter ready for the beach on a recent warm day.


Linking up with Kathy's Quilts Slow Sunday Stitching.

Your fox embroidery is adorable!

I'm glad to hear that someone else is the same way. When I get on a roll with a stitching project and can imagine the finish-line, my mind starts jumping around to the next one.

Isn't he a darling?! Oh gracious, you must melt every time he smiles at you! Love your stitcheries ... but I have to admit, I'm very partial to that fox! :)

It's amazing how fast you can finish something with just a bit done each day. Hunter is such a cutie. How is it that they grow up so fast?
