I have been doing a lot of knitting, trying to keep up with a knit along for a lovely shawl. But this weekend I got ahead of the schedule and my elbow was getting a bit tired (a sure sign of too much knitting) so I pulled out my prayer pocket piece that I have been working on for at least 5 years. I started it a few years after mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I am using a cotton kitchen towel for the background and I have a variety of patches stitched on top. Under each patch is a piece of muslin with a memory or prayer written in ink. The patches and prayers came one at a time. Now I am hand stitching on top of each patch and when that is finished, I will add batting and backing a hand stitch the whole piece. I have been influenced by this lovely blog.
Today I am linking up with Kathy and other quilters who are taking time for slow stitching.
