Slow Sunday Stitching

Is anyone else still suffering from a tryptophan hangover or food coma?  I’m telling you, I have been sluggish the past couple of days. 

In spite of that, we did manage to decorate the inside of the house for Christmas and also the tree.  We made two shopping trips for the tree because “it” had not been unveiled on our first stop.  We settled for one slightly shorter than what we wanted but it really looks nice adorned with white lights and our favorite family ornaments.  I’m going to do a little more decorating then share a few photos with you.  I’ll also have a confession to make!

Today was Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy’sQuilts.  Before I share today’s project, I need to show the Manatee Row from this post.

As a reminder, my friend and I collected many kits from Florida’s 2015 Row by Row Experience.  Click here to learn about the Row by Row Experience.
This row is from Boutique for Quilters in Melbourne, FL.

Cute little schools of "fish buttons"

And I also completed the “Peace on the Treasure Coast” row from Laura’s Sewing in Port Saint Lucie, FL.

You can’t see them but I promise the bird has legs. 

And today, I finished stitching Primitive Stitches “Winter Sampler.” 

I first learned about these designs from Karen at My Yellow Farmhouse a few years ago.  She once had a quilt shop that sold kits. 

I have all four seasons and will make a small quilt with each.

I am still working on secret projects for Santa but he said I can tell you about them after Christmas.

Have a good week, y’all.  Put your ear plugs in because the screen door is surely about to be slammin’ J

I am admiring your hand stitchery. I need to do some of that just for something to take with me at times.

You talk about being sluggish but it looks to me as if you've gotten a heck of a lot done. I love the tiny fish buttons they'll really add quite a bit to to your row. Happy Thanksgiving from Dogwood Lane.

Your Row blocks are amazing! I haven't seen either of them and sure which I had been in Florida during the time period they were giving them out!
Thanks for stopping over to see me at QuilterinMotion.net. I am enjoying your blog too and look forward to working together later in 2016.

Happy December! The Winter Sampler is so cute. What a fun little seasonal series you'll have. Your row by row is going to be a really beautiful quilt that perfectly represents your neck of the woods, uh water.

LOL - if that is you feeling sluggish, I'm looking forward to seeing what you create when you're working with all pistons chugging along Jeanna!
Your Florida rows are beautiful and I love the stitchery.

Love your primitive stitchery
I actually behaved at the Thanksgiving table this year. I avoided Black Friday
