I have been moving right along stitching these blocks. Stitching while watching TV and any other time I might be sitting in the living room has become a habit. On Mother's Day, my daughter commented that everyone was on their phones "but mom is stitching away". That observation made me happy because I really try to limit the time I live in cyber world.
Now, my blocks are in pause. When I began the project, I only pieced 4 blocks. I was running behind and wanted to start the embroidery.
So now I need to find something else to embroider until I get the blocks pieced. It's a habit now that I don't want to break.
I have learned which needle works best with each floss. Sounds funny to read it, but as a beginner it's an accomplishment.
Since I re-made my stencils, I am better at marking the fabric using stencils.
I like to stitch embellishing the pattern of the fabric.
I like to stitch motifs.
I wish I had a stencil for letters.
