slow progress

No shattering news on the stitching front, I am affraid.


                I am working on the next section of my Schwalm sampler.

I have embellished the top of my Spring quilt with some embroidery and I have started to quilt by hand.
I am using a design which came with the quilt pattern, which is more complicated then I have ever done, so this will take some time!
I am using a light green Aurifil thread.


  1. The Schwalm embroidery is looking good and I am sure you will enjoy your hand quilting on this beautiful quilt. Take care.

  2. Oh my goodness, Radka, that Schwalm sampler looks gorgeous. What beautiful work you do! And your Spring quilt is looking great, too. You are definitely good at hand stitching!



  3. Bravo that you are handquilting!
    I never did Schwalm embroidery - and I like your sample very much. The quilt will be beautiful - will we see the complete piece when it is finished? Of course, patience!

  4. I've just found your blog and have enjoyed seeing your outstanding work. I am also filled with joy (and envy) just looking at your spring photos!

  5. It´s wonderful,the quilt will be very beautiful.You are an artist.Congratulations.


  6. Wow, your schwalm sampler will become a masterpiece. It's just a pity that I don't manage to do some embroidery with my ill fingers. And when I was young and my fingers were ok, I didn't feel like sewing and stitching. I am looking forward to seeing the whole quilt when it is finished.

  7. Radka I don't know this term of for embroidery but it looks very effort full... I am really a fan of your neatness... Embroidery without neatness is nothing and you have perfection in it... Waiting for the completion...
    Hope you will enjoy your visit if you can spare a little bit to see some napkin folds at

  8. What kind of stitching is the Schwalm project? It is lovely.
