Slow Stitching

Another week filled with busy-ness and reasons to slow down - if just for a few minutes.
I have a binding to finish stitching tonight.
I have been making good progress on my shawl and have cast on a cowl that I hope will be a gift.
I also received a lovely little packet of wool squares and have been dreaming about what I might do with them.  They are cut into 3" squares and there are 48.  I saw a lovely idea on Nancy's blog.  And Sue Spargo inspires me too.  These would be a lovely way to dig into that stitches book I have.  Just need to see if I have a piece of fabric for the backing.  I see some serious slow stitching in my future.

Linking up with Kathy and others who are taking some slow stitches this weekend.

Nothing better than wool! A penny mat would be a perfect project!

There are some great ideas for free wool projects/designs over at the Raspberry Rabbits blog too. Have fun playing!
