As it turns out, once I started hand sewing the applique on Thursday….
I just couldn’t stop! It takes forever and I can’t actually watch TV while I’m doing it (although I do listen to the TV), but it is so beautiful when it is done. And so satisfying. I’m also getting the hang of it a little bit, turning the edges under is getting a little easier and the pieces are starting to lie more smoothly when finished. I’m actually past the halfway point! My knitting is getting a little neglected. It may be something about these bright colours that is drawing me in, but whatever the reason I’m going to roll with for as long as it lasts.
