Today was a bit frustrating for someone who loves to sew. I spent the entire day on the computer trying to get things updated for my quilt guild responsibilities. I’m even trying to get a little ahead, and I think that’s what takes a lot of time for me. I took a break to mow the lawn and only got the front yard done and the mower has something wrong with it again.
I needed a fix of something sewing related to make me feel good!
No quilting has been done on my latest quilt for over a week, so no luck there.
Some progress has been made on my slow stitching handwork project, though.
The hand stitched threads/embroidery part is pretty much finished. There may be one more line or two to add…maybe.
The beading is going just like the threadwork—the more I add, the more spots I see where it needs to be added. This could be never ending!
Still trying to keep it a bit subtle, but I want enough on it to be at least visible!
I remind myself that I want it to draw attention from far away and continue to interest someone with the details as they are seen close up.
It’s slow and may seem never ending, but I’m really enjoying every moment I spend working on it. It seems to be developing a name for itself, too. Something around City Rain Storm…it will come to me eventually!
