Tea and Sunday Stitching

We are having another hot humid day here in central Florida with no signs of cooler temps to come. I did my morning walk at the park this morning stepping to the sounds of my own footsteps, chirping birds and scampering squirrels.  After my walk I stopped to pick up orange juice and the Sunday newspaper then went home to brew a cup of tea.

I picked up block number four of the Hocuspocusville and put in a few hand embroidery stitches to get my  Slow Sunday Stitching underway and I will link my post here at Kathy's Quilts
where you can see what other bloggers are hand stitching

Once again I decided to begin hand embroidery on the sign which seems to take me forever, I'm in no hurry and taking it slow is the point of Slow Sunday Stitching isn't it?  

I love the relaxation hand stitching provides, my breathing slows, my mind rest with each passage the needle makes through the fabric.  I almost feel the same calm when I do yoga which isn't as often as I like but plan to remedy that in the new year.


  1. YES! Exactly right :)
    It's yoga stitching!
    ENjoy your new block!

  2. I enjoy seeing what you are working on and agree sew stitching is therapeutic. :)

  3. You are making such great progress on all those Hocuspocusville blocks. I love watching your stitching.

  4. I have a couple of grown nieces who would love these blocks.

  5. I like your Hocuspocusville blocks. I haven't done any embroidery in a long time and need to put that on my 2016 list. I find hand quilting relaxing but get tense when I do embroidery or cross-stitch.

  6. I have not had any time for stitching of any kind for over a week....I may need to remedy that today. I am enjoying seeing each of your embroidery blocks.
