Welcome to the series of my slow stitching projects documentation.
Basically, I wanted to document the slow progress of my hand-stitched projects on a weekly/forthnightly basis for a couple of reasons:
- I wanted to make myself accountable and make sure I do sit and enjoy hand-stitching at least one session per week.
- Documenting progress is always something I love to do. In fact, that is why this blog started anyway.
- To create excitement even with little progress. Small progress does matter!
- I hope I can inspire you to do the same too. So share your slow stitching projects you’re working on too in the comments.
For this week, what has been growing?

I am a little behind with the Kingfisher Stitch-along.
Have you seen the cutest hexie flowers popping around for this sew-along? Check it out here>
I love those photos showing the stacks of them.
Well, mine is not even stackable yet, since I haven’t been sewing.
Too much chilling and food eating during Eid, and a little to none of sewing. But I am happy to say, I am back with my regular routine today and I am enjoying a little more hand sewing these hexies while sipping my coffee.
It’ll be slow, but it will be growing for sure.
I love picking my fabric scraps to make these. There is alwasy something fun in the scrap box.
If you are looking for more varieties in your scrap pile, check out this scrap bundle to add in more varieties. the scrappier the better right?

Extra large KingFisher version
I also found some already made hexie flowers that my sister had made using my scraps a couple of years ago. It matches well with the current flowers I am making, but these were larger in size.
I am thinking of putting them together with similar background style. Patchy diamonds in scrappy fabrics. Then make into a big long pillow to put on the bed. That’ll be fun.
So, how about you? What have you been stitching?
Let me know if you joined the Kingfisher Sew Along too and what stage you are at.
