Slow Stitching Sunday ~ Aunt Martha

This project involves many steps. At least the way I am doing it! I stamped a bunch of pieces while watching my grandsons in our backyard one day.

Then I trimmed with scissors. I had no idea how dull my fabric scissors were! I have them pinned as they will be sewn into rows.

It took me an hour and 15 minutes to piece these six rows.

Sewing the rows together is fiddly business.

But another hour and 15 minutes later and it was ready to press!

I’m thrilled with the accuracy. But it does take a long time. Here is the back.

Time to prep the pieces for my next point.

Have a great day!
