Ugly 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.
