Sunday Evening Appliqu-a-thon

Placing "Daisies" on BackgroundI used my lightbox and a large sheet of newsprint with some simple lines and boxes to keep the placement of the red English paper pieced daisy shapes consistent ... or, I hope, consistent enough.

This morning, I pinned the last three daisies in place with plans for what I am thinking of as an appliqu-a-thon, with hopes I can finish it up and move on to the next step for this WIP. It's turning out to be a very appropriate project for Slow Stitch Sunday ... because, for me, it's going much slower than usual.

It feels a little crazy that it's only the 9th of the month and I'm already concerned that it might not be finish-able by the end of the month, especially given some other plans and commitments and beginning to feel a little pressure about it.  An evening of meditative stitching will definitely help me relax and continue to enjoy.

Don't let the pressure of the finish take away any of your enjoyment of the slow stitching! It looks amazing!

Very pretty. As Kathy says don't let yourself get too stressed out about the finishing, just enjoy the stitching.

Lovely piece. With slow stitching the finish is that much sweeter. It's beauty will be well worth it, it looks great.

Deadlines are made to be broken, arn't they? Enjoy your stitching. It will be lovely whenever it decides to get done.

It isn't the end of the world if it takes a little longer. You are making progress and that's the important thing. Life is meant to be enjoyed, too! =) Hope you have a pleasant evening!
