Still working.


Just a quick post to show I'm still working on my jeans.
I reckon there should be 2 finish lines - one for the 'hares' ie the machine blanket stitchers and one for the 'turtles' ie the ones learning needleturn.
Have fun everyone,

Lol! I'm still working too, but I'm a 'hare'! Yep machining my applique and still working. You are doing well!

hmmmm I am blanket stitching but by hand not machine so what does that make me lol? I guess a turtle.

Maybe we need 3 deadlines - poor Chookyblue! Kayly your jeans look so lovely - such a soft colourway.

Love how your jeans look. I am really enjoying the needleturn - certainly a learning curve for me anyway.

It gets easier as you go along....you'll catch up in no time. I think, though the hare was faster, he had more distractions and the turtle ended up winning the race...
