Stitching Slow Sunday Block Three

The last Sunday of November, this month has gone by  in a flash, the same cannot be said about my stitching. Luck for me this is a Sunday for Slow Stitching.

Here is what I have stitched so far on Block number 3 (Hocuspocusville quilt) I started stitching the door and moved onto the roof since about six this morning. That little sign took me nearly 2 hours to stitch.
  I don't know if you can see the little circles along the ladder sides and above the balcony fence but those were supposed to be dots for french knots, I have trouble seeing the dots after stitching for a while so I traced the circles that were on the pattern, what I plan to do is use black seed beads instead of french dots for two reasons, my french knots often resemble small cauliflowers and when I first bought the pattern I had planned to use beads on some of the blocks to make it more my own.  I left the cat unstitched for now because I have a few ideas running through my head.

I will be getting back to stitching this block this afternoon after I do a few errands and read the newspaper. In the meantime I'll post this to  for Slow Sunday  Stitching.


  1. The beads instead of French knots is a great idea. Good luck on more stitching!

  2. Hi,
    Your embroidery is beautiful.
    Have a great day!

  3. I like the idea of beads. I usually wind up substituting little stitched Xs, because I'm miserably awful at French knots.

  4. Love to see your progress. Good work! Can't wait to see it with the beads.

  5. I think the seeds will work beautifully in lieu of French knots. Cute stitchery!
