After finishing a hand-stitched art quilt several years ago, I vowed that there would be no more hand stitching. The reason – that piece was medium-sized and took me about 3 years to finish! I knew there had to be a better way. Now, years later, the pain forgotten, I’m working on a piece that – for reasons I cannot fathom – called out for hand stitching! It still takes me forever, but it’s only small sections, and I seem to be more relaxed about it. Here’s a detail shot:
More to come when it’s done which hopefully, will be much less than 3 years! It better be less than 3 years because it’s promised for an exhibit with Fiber Artists Coalition next January.
