Slow Sunday Stitching @ Kathy's Quilts

Linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching @ Kathy's Quilt - an encouragement to slow down, take it easy, and enjoy some handwork.

This week for my slow stitching, I've been working on Fall Fairy by Dimensions. It has been a while since she made it onto my frame, but here she was when I started.

And here she is today.

As of 5/24/2015
I'm trying to do some of the backstitching as I go, because I don't want to have to do all of it at the end. 

In an effort to get more organized, I picked up some drawer storage. I found these six drawer units at Joanns and I love them because the interior dimensions are 12" x 12" or big enough to hold full size quilt blocks. 

After picking one up and trying it out, I determined that they would also work well for cross stitch kits & WIPs, so I grabbed a couple more. This allowed me to clean out my stitchy corner in the living room and free up some couch space. Previous to this, all my WIPs were piled in the living room, on the couch and in a old magazine holder. It was generally a big dust collecting disaster and it had to be cleaned every time we had company.

There was enough space to hold my unstarted kits and extra magic guide fabric, and I still have six drawers for my quilt projects. 


  1. What a wonderful slow stitching project! Before and after pictures are great because you can see your progress. Nice storage system too...I need more storage drawers for my fabric too.
