A New Patchwork Tutorial for Slow Sunday Stitching

Hello, hello, how are you? It’s been a while! It feels good to be back for another Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy this week though. I’m looking forward to heading back into the fold…if you’ll have me. I’ve lost my way a bit over the last month or so and got it into my head that I’ve had nothing worth sharing. But that was yesterday! Today I’ve got a new tutorial I hope you’ll enjoy.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had the urge to make some Suffolk puffs, which felt a bit random to say the least. I wondered if it was a subliminal message to update my Suffolk puff tutorial. Well if it was, it worked! As well as updating the tutorial I’ve also added brand new instructions for how to make the scented pillow below!

Hop on over and check out the tutorial – it would make a sweet little slow Sunday stitching project I think.

I’d forgotten how satisfying it is to make Suffolk puffs, they look so cute for such little effort! They’re fun to make and I’m tempted to sit quietly this evening and sew some more. But no, the next few hours before bed will be spent slowly quilting Summer Blues. I really need to wrap it up and move on. It’s gone into a lull again and I can’t have that when the finish line is so close. And, I haven’t chalked up a single finish yet this year, so it must be high time I did. I’ll try and imagine the elation if Summer Blues is the first, maybe that’ll motive me to get my needle out!

I’d love it if you pop over and have a look at the new Suffolk puff page and let me know what you think. I spent more hours on the layout and writing the pillow instructions than actually making it…was it worth it?! I hope you think so, feel free to leave me your frank and honest opinions and of course if you have any tips of your own I’d love to share them too.

Have a lovely stitchy start to the week!

    So nice to see you post! I’ll check out your tutorial later, my wee grandson is popping over for a bit this morning. How are you doing with your circles?….I’m a bit behind but hope to do some prepping today

      Circles? Umm, all I seem to do at the moment is go round in them, haha! It does feel good to be back but the ufo pile has been growing for the last few weeks Sandra, and sadly the circles have stalled for a while… I really hope to get back to them soon, I’ve really missed the daily practice. Hope you had a lovely time with your grandson! 🙂
