Slow Sunday Stitching

I've been a little preoccupied in the last week and that combined with my wrists hurting again has meant minimal craft time. I think I overdid the crochet last weekend, not only working to try to get a good start on the Twelve Point Star blanket but also taking a new scarf project to a baby shower to keep myself busy while there. I know better, I really do. It was really only yesterday that I was able to do more crochet and I added several rows to my C2C blanket and a just few rows on the star blanket.

I didn't make any progress on this last week, but the week before I finally put it on my sewing machine and started FMQing the Rainbow Dresden quilt. Its going pretty quickly. 

No progress on The Castle by Teresa Wentzler. Instead, after having to tear out stitches three times in one day, I took a friends advice and switched up projects, choosing instead to work on a free hand embroidery project. I've restarted the Life is Beautiful quilt, forsaking the use of the horrible stress inducing metallics for regular DMC embroidery thread and now I'm enjoying this project much more.

Linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching@Kathy's Quilts. Please stop by and see what everyone else is slowly stitching this weekend.
