Slow Stitching. Stash Report,

Slow Stitching.
I've been linking up to Kathy's Sunday Slow Stitching for a long time.  I sure have enjoyed putting my machine sewing on hold for a day and simply slow stitching.  It's so soothing.  

A few weeks ago, I decided to "close up shop" (my sewing machine) on Friday night and slow stitch all weekend.  

This precious little kitty is not mine.  
Unfortunately, I am allergic to cats.
She was in a pic I found online...not sure where!  
I apologize for the confusion!

So, my slow stitching 
is now 
all weekend long 
(barring classes I may take :p )!

Patrick's Strength
I'm making progress on Patrick's Strength. He has osteosarcoma, but we don't know the stage or metastasis.  He's only 16.  They will be staying in Houston through January for chemo, surgery, more chemo and possibly more surgery.  Prayers up , please!

I'm going to go ahead and work a bit on my Around the House Embroidery as well.  But just a bit because Patrick's Strength is still my first priority.  

Oh!  I'm also hoping to get the quilt label sewn onto this baby quilt!

  1. I would love it, too, if I had such an adorable companion to stitch with!

    1. I wish I did have this little kitty! I can't because of allergies! :( It's just a pic I found online that I thought would be perfect for a Slow Stitching post! It's funny because my friend's cat - who likes nobody - LOVES me! I accept her cuddles and shower when I get home! :)

  2. It sounds like a lovely way to spend a weekend! That cat of yours is gorgeous!

    1. Oh Sarah! Thank you! I wish it was my cat - no go - allergies! :( It's a pic I found online that I thought would be perfect for a Slow Stitching post! Every time I see your blog header I imagine quilting by the sea! :) Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting!

  3. Love your crochet progress, and the baby quilt is so adorable. Prayers are sent your way.

    1. Thank you, Deb! I know Patrick's family will appreciate those prayers! Thank you for visiting and commenting! :)

    1. Thank you, Kathleen! They're little yo-yo flowers - one day they hope to be a quilt! Take good care!
