  1. I am so slow with my stitching and so irregular with my stitches that I have several of your projects in my ‘to do’ basket but I love reading you log every day and miss it when you are away. Thanks for sharing so much with the rest of us.

    • I too have a stack of unfinished stitch projects, Janet, so don’t feel bad. Embroidery is one of those slow art forms that you can enjoy without guilt. No need auto rush to the finish line.
