Looking back, I find that I began this project in January 2019. I’ve had life interruptions, distractions and procrastination, but I am pleased to say that she is now completed.
I am using two different cameras (one a power shot pocket, and one a new to me digital that I am having a terrible time learning to use), so you are getting head shots of my practicing to look at.
If you click on a picture, you will see a larger view.
All of stitching is done by free motion. It isn’t always pretty, or done with perfectly even stitch lengths and widths, but it is effective anyway. I want you to see that, so that you will be free to stitch as you please and not be bunched up about perfection!
Don’t waste time striving for perfection (or being stifled because of it).
There is no time to waste.
My niece, Candace, came for a visit of a few days. She had never made a pie, so I helped her to make a cherry pie. Not with store bought crust, or canned cherries! She used a rolling pin and a cherry pitter!
And she had fun!
This was to be our last visit together.
