Welcome to the first hand stitching party of 2022!
This is the perfect time to reflect on a year gone by, and the accomplishments made. It was another very challenging year living in a world wide pandemic, and I consider just staying alive to be a great accomplishment! I am so thankful to have access to vaccines, to not have contracted covid, and to not have lost any loved ones.
I am celebrating making it to another year by sewing all weekend and zooming with friends! Yesterday I started 2 mystery quilts and will post about those tomorrow.
My biggest accomplishment this week was finishing my December UFO that was 4 years in the making. I was a little worried about stitching the binding on these 135 degree angles, but it went very well.
See the very old Debbie Mumm fabric used up in this backing?!?
I savoured this hand stitching as 2021 came to an end, and wondered what I would hand stitch in 2022.
I have a project in mind to start and I pulled out these Valdani threads, plus a white for the background and the blue fabric for the border. Can't wait to get started!
