Slow stitching

Outside my window, the birds are singing and the sun is working very hard to break through the clouds.  It looks like a rainy, blustery day so the egg hunt at church will probably move inside.  I don't think the children will mind.
I finally took the plunge with Sue Spargo's Instastich.  I have my first block sewn and have begun the embroidery.  It is a great lap project.
I also finished a third little hat for our next donation project.  These little hats will be going to Mongolia.  I have cast on two shawls this weekend.  One takes a bit more focus than the other so I can go back and forth depending on what is happening around me.
I have finished my blocks for Lori's doll quilt swap and have chosen the border fabric.  Hope to get that finished this evening so I can start the hand quilting.  
Looking forward to a family meal after church and then time to pick up my needles this evening.
Be sure to visit Kathy to see what others are stitching this week.

I don't remember hearing of the instastich. Will have to do a search. It looks fun. Love the hats. I too usually have easy and more involved quilting and knitting projects going at the same time.

Your instastich is very nice as are your stitches. Cute little hats and what a great project to work on.

So far I've resisted Instastitch, but it's kind of starting to call my name. Yours is looking great!
