Despite my stitching until new and strange calluses form on my fingertips, I'm not going to make my deadline for the Phat Quarter Music Swap. Boo-hoo! I'll have to ship my piece off to New Zealand next week. But my lateness isn't due to a lack of effort! I think I was just too ambitious in terms of the size and the amount of stitching this was going to take.
But I'm really happy with how it is turning out. It will be hard to give this up because it is my most involved embroidered piece so far.
