New Start!

I have been pretty faithful to my pledge to myself to get some WIP's finished and to not start anything new until my retreat.......so I rewarded myself for my hardwork and recent finishes with a new start.   This is a Blue Ribbon Design, A Little Quakeresque.

As always.......I have my little brain calculating.....if there are 26 letters and a motif around each and then four corners........for a total of 85 little sections.....and if I average one a day!  WhaHoo!  3 months and I will be done!   And just think, there may be days that I add more than one motif in a day.

I have been working in hand for so long but I am not sure I am thrilled about how much wrinkling I cause the fabric.    To Q-snap or not to Q-snap?

That is really a pretty piece and you've made some great progress so far.

I'm a Q-snap devotee, but if you're worried about wrinkles, remember those creases you end up with a q snap. I really hate ironing those things out. :) (Then again, I hate ironing anything lol)

Your work so far is really pretty! I'm sure this will just fly by! :)

Good luck with your finishing goal. I stitch in hand on smaller projects and use qsnaps or scrolls for larger pieces.
