Annes Orchard Clutch slow progress is still progress!

Slow Progress is Still Progress… A little bit of stitching on Anne’s Orchard clutch!

Slow Progress is Still Progress…

Last time, I didn’t have much to show by way of progress on my version of Anne’s Orchard clutch. And I’m afraid this time is no different! Though I have now completed all the buttonhole on the petals of a second flower. I actually managed to do it all quite quickly on Saturday morning! So I think if I actually dedicated myself to this piece it would work up quite quickly!

Not a lot of stitching…

There still hasn’t been a lot of stitching in general, and what I have been doing has been stitching up three birds as part of a Stitch-a-long I’m running where we are completing our own Nicola Jarvis birds. I’m also really enjoying stitching these up too! I suspect my stitching time is so precious at the moment, I would enjoy (almost) anything!

  1. You are still adjusting, Caherine, soon enough you will be able to spen a little more time stitching on a regular basis.? Progress is progress!

    1. Thanks Rachel – I certainly feel like I have a lot going on at the moment, but I’m sure things will settle down, and I’ll get used to the new pace of life!

  2. It’s a really cute pattern! I think you’re right, if you dedicate more time to this project, you’ll be done in no time! Or take your time and enjoy the stitching because it really does look like fun 🙂

  3. “If I dedicated myself to this piece…” Oh, I know that feeling, but it’s so much fun to have lots of projects on the go. Never mind, you have made progress and it will be finished one day soon.

  4. Your projects are always so exquisite! Sometimes life gets in the way, and sometimes the stars align and you can get a lot of stitching done. And sometimes different projects fight for attention. But we just keep moving forward!
