It is nice to be just past the halfway mark with these blocks. They are a joy to work on. Though adding the background as I go is a bit tedious, I am glad I am doing it. Can't fathom the monotony of having to do all of it after the fun part is done.
Kathy spoke about the long term commitment we make with these slow stitched projects, and I do find that I have a much deeper emotional attachment to them. I like quick and fun well enough, but there is nothing quite like sitting quietly and meditatively with needle and thread.
It is such a blessing to see my girls love and support each other.
