| On to the next project »
I was sure the project I thought I'd finish last weekend would be finished this weekend.
I got a lot of stitching done, but I have a lot more to do.
You real quilters out there - you amaze me. I don't know how you do it.

I wish I had inherited my mother's sewing and quilting gene. I was born with a glue gun, but can't seem to find the patience for sewing. Looks fabulous. Those colors are just gorgeous.

That is the cutest cheater fabric I've ever seen, and you're doing a wonderful job on the stitching.

Excellent stitching and we quilters use a machine! lol

Just curious, do you use the rocking stitch? It allows you to get many stitches on a needle. It does go faster than a stitch at a time. You do need a modern thimble with a ridge in the top. I bet there is a video on YouTube. I haven't hand-stitched in years. I do enjoy it, but I don't seem to have the time anymore.

Shelley, I think I must do both, although I didn't know there was a name for that stitch. I usually try to get a lot of stitches on the needle, but when my fingers start to hurt, I go back to single stitches. I'm not sure if one way is faster or not. I like the hand-stitching, too, but it does not go quickly!

I love love love it. The colors are perfect. I don't do tons of hand work like this. Your stitches look good.

I was created with a adhesive gun, but can't seem to discover the tolerance for stitching. Looks fantastic. Those shades are just stunning.
