This week I have made quite a bit of progress hand embroidering the Black Cauldron block I imgaine all the straight lines made things progress faster and while stitching the roof yesterday I could feel my stitching slow down some.
If you are like me and many other needleworkers you problaby have more than one or two projects going at the same time, perhaps during a giving day set aside for stitching you even switch projects every few hours to make some progress on each or like me sometimes you just need a change when working with one color thread.
For me this week its preparing to embellish some crazy quilt hearts so I am rummaging around in my beads, buttons, ribbons, lace and trims stash for just the right pieces. I don't really have a set plan for embellishing the hearts I'm just going to see what I have and start hand stiching it on.

While going through one of my stash bins yesterday I found an earlier piece of hand embroidery,

a true vintage piece hand embroidered by me years ago before I put floss and needles aside for other pursuits only to rediscover how much I love embroidery decades later.
I'm linking this post over at Super Mom No Cape, a wonderful site where you can find not only vintage hand embroidery patterns but other talented bloggers posting what they are stitching too. click the link and enjoy and maybe you will want to join in too.
