So.... Some time last year, actually maybe over a year ago, I was on my eBay craze. So I found some lovely calico postage stamp pieces, over 3,216 squares. Someone began hand stitching a few of them. So I forged ahead and began to hand piece as well. Then I got bored and then I picked it up again.
So after I realized they will end up sitting forever, I decided 2013 will be about finishing things. So in 49 minutes, I completed 8 subsets of 36 blocks that comprise the main design and then i will only have an additional 7 of another type.
So in the name of completion, I will continue machine stitching so that I can be done with the bulk of it. I will still have to hand piece some of the blocks together, but at least the bulk will be done.
