Quilting and Cross-stitching

In my free time, meager as it has been lately, I have been quilting and cross-stitching. The weather has been cooperating....cold and miserable. Perfect for stitching. I have removed almost all of my mom's quilting and have been adding my own. I almost have all of the stitching done in one direction.
Baker Beach is filling in slowly. Last week it looked like this:
You can see that I have added part of a black rock and some of the water above it.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. If you read yesterday's post you know that I may not be stitching much. I am also linking to Quilting is More Fun than Housework. On Monday, I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are up to.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cold and wet days are great for slow stitching while having a cup of tea. Is this the last corner of Baker Beach? Take care.

Even a few minutes of stitching here and there will be relaxing!
So nice to see you adding stitches to your Mom's quilt!

Looks like you've been getting a bit done here and there. Hope you can find some time here and there to stitch each week.

It sounds like perfect weather for some slow stitching. Baker Beach made nice progress this week.

You've made wonderful progress on both of these projects!

Miserable weather outside makes for good stitching inside. Lovely work.

Maker Joy said...

Sorry for the loss of your father-in-law. I hope you and your family are doing okay in the tough weeks ahead.

Your stitching is beautiful.

Baker's Beach must be nice to stitch on during the cold days of early spring. I think your mother's quilt is such a wonderful project to finish up and keep in the family.
