Welcome to the first series of my slow stitching projects documentation.

Basically, I wanted to document the slow progress of my hand-stitched projects on a weekly/bi-weekly basis for a couple of reasons:

  1. I wanted to make myself accountable and make sure I do sit and enjoy hand-stitching at least one session per week.
  2. Documenting progress is always something I love to do. In fact, that is why this blog started anyway.
  3. To create excitement even with little progress. Small progress does matter!
  4. I hope I can inspire you to do the same too. And that’s why I put a linky party at the end of this post where you can share your slow-stitching projects too. And to spark it up, I have a giveaway to start this party!

For this week, what has been growing?

There are affiliates links within this post. Please find my full disclosure here.

English Paper Piecing Grandmothers Flower Edyta Sitar Handful of Scraps

I made a full circle to my very first complete diamond for the center of this flower garden quilt.

I know many of you have seen this projects on my blog and my Instagram and it has been one of the reader’s favorites. It is my favorite too.

I love how it is turning out bit by bit.

If you want to make one too – this one is a pattern from this book which I totally love and highly recommend.

(Notes: The book always goes out of stock – if you happen to find it available, grab it. You’ll love the projects and all the eye candy in there)

I have made the correct size hexagon template 7/8″ called in that pattern that I share with you on the TLMC Resource library too. This one has quotes on them!

Check this post for that.


This week, one of the baby flowers also turned into a mother flower.

That makes 18 of 32 full flowers for the quilt.

How about you?

What has been progressing this week? Link below!

AND since this is the first linky party for this series, I’ll even have a giveaway to officiate it.

Everyone who link-up will have a chance at winning this new book by one of my favorite EPP-ers of all time.

The book is slightly different than other books in itself that it has stories, reasoning to why EPP is a great choice of self-indulgence and a chapter dedicated to all awesome modern EPP-ers. It’ll be a great read and I am happy to give this away once it is released!

This link-up will be open for TWO weeks. Feel free to link anything slow stitching post/image you have!

    Hi! I just came across your site and love it! I don’t know what a linky party is. Can you explain that please? I’d like to sign up to win the book, “Handfuls of Scraps – Pieced into Amazing Quilts” – which looks amazing! – but am not sure what to do. Help!!!

      Hi Sharon, A linky party is basically when you can add in a link of your slow stitching projects up to share with us all. You can first upload your photo to any platform such as instagram, facebook, flickr or anything really. As long as you can share a link to that photo (ie, http://instagram.com/…………..), you can then click the Blue “Add your link” button at the bottom of this post. You will be redirected to a page where you can add in the link to your photo there.
