It was a dark and stormy Sunday Afternoon

Auditioning Fabrics for a Bird PincushionUgly overcast days are so rare here that when the wind picks up and it starts to feel a little like the big bad wolf is huffing and puffing at the door ... it makes us all feel a little under-the-weather.

And by all of us, I mean me and the cats.  Their reactions are predictable and very different.  When the thunder started, Grace went into the kitchen and let me know by meowing non-stop that I needed to open the pantry door so she could go curl up in the back of that space.  Then Johnny followed me upstairs into the bedroom when I went to grab a sweater and insisted he needed to go out into all that wind and weather onto the roof deck (it didn't happen).

On days like this all I want to do is wrap up in a quilt and do some hand-stitching ... and that's the plan for tonight.  I'll be trying the new pincushion pattern.  These are the fabrics I pulled for my first effort.

Do you have a project for Slow Sunday Stitching? Check out what everyone else is doing on Kathy's Quilts.  It looks like there's a whole lot of appliqué and hexies going on today.

That pin cushion looks so cute. Be sure to post a pic when you're finished.

Great fabric choices. I look forward to seeing this one made. We are raining like crazy, but not windy, fortunately, and the thunder has moved off. Must be a national storm. LOL

I wish we could get a good storm like that here.

We are entering the rainy season here so lots of time for stitching on the couch.

I like pin cushions very much. The bird design looks very interesting. What do you plan to stuff it with?
