More Peacock Feathers -- Slow Sunday Stitching

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  My peacock has a few more feathers this week.

I found this mystery stitch along on facebook.  You can get the free pattern here.

It's called the Mystery Sampler Stitch A Long (2019) at Linen & Threads.

I'm linking up with Kathy at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Slow Sunday Stitching

Part of my escapades this week involved getting the mower stuck on the slippery hill.  You can tell by the mud skids that I was really trying to get it out by myself.  Besides sewing and quilting, I LOVE TO MOW!  That is my "me" time!  It takes me four hours on this mower to get every hill (except the two big ones) done.  My husband mows the two big hills because it's too dangerous for me.  On this hill pictured, the mower slides into the ditch and it's not that far from where it slides.

I'm so thankful that Sweetie always has a simple way to rescue me.  I'm also thankful for my awesome husband.  He keeps that chain in that milk crate on the four wheeler all the time.  He's my rock.

The rescue wouldn't be complete without a picture of "the helper" sitting patiently in a safe zone.


  1. Your peacock is looking so nice! I also like to mow the lawn but I just have a pocket sized garden!

  2. You are making good progress with the peacock! Keep going because the pattern looks like so much fun! Enjoy your stitches!

  3. I love watching you and Sarah work on this project. It is so fun to see the progress each week. Keep up the great work.

  4. Gosh that is a lot of grass to mow. Ride on mowers are fun, aren't they. Love your pretty peacock.

  5. Your peacock is gorgeous. You are really making progress. I can say that I never enjoyed lawn mowing that I had to do as a kid. Maybe a ride-on mower would be more fun.
