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

by | Oct 21, 2018 | 27 comments

Slow progress is still progress I hear – there’s a little more progress in this three weekly check in as part of the SAL I’m part of than last time! Despite that, I am enjoying this piece!

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!

Join the others!

      Thanks Margaret – it is a lovely and calming piece – I think it must be the blue and white combination!

      Yes, and I’m sure it will come along quite quickly soon enough! It does seem to work up quite quickly when I do sit and stitch it!

      Thanks so much Kathy. I have missed stitching regularly, and this is a lovely piece to work on when I’m tired and have a bit of time.

    Any progress is progress, especially when life is getting frantically busy at you, which it probably is!

      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!

    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 🙂

      Thanks Christina. It’s a really lovely piece in that it can be done without too much use of the brain! Just what we need at times!

    “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.

      I think it might be just part of a crafter’s brain to ‘need’ other projects on the go!

    Its not the speed you travel that counts Catherine it is how much you enjoy the journey. If you are enjoying your stitching then there is no rush.

      What a wonderful thought Helen! I will remember that when I’m stitching.

    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!

      What a sweet thing to say, thank you! I certainly feel like life is a little to blame at the moment, but the main thing is to enjoy it!
