Hand Quilting 'Cuz It's Good For You
I just found a 'new to me' blog that totally speaks my language. Kathy is starting a Sunday link-up for hand stitchers of all kinds. She has an excellent post on the merits of slow quilting which really make sense.
Of course I already hand quilt almost all of my quilts telling myself that 1. I love it. 2. I'm saving money and 3. It's therapy! Turns out that slowing down is good for us in many ways. Course I often have an applique project on hand as well for the many times that I am waiting, waiting, waiting on kids/the husband or when I have company, of which I have plenty of from time to time (being as how our family tree is loaded with fruit and all that).....
