Ida Mae Crow isn’t progressing very fast. Stitching with more urgent deadlines always take precedence over stitching just for fun. However, over the past week or so I managed to get her head stitched and add some flowers. The project is truly gratifying. Stitching over one is slower, it’s more precise, it’s almost a zen activity. Of course with the fabric and the silks, the needle just slides through the fabric and the silk covers the fabric beautifully. That helps too :).
Next time I will remember to put some reference in the picture as well. This way it is hard to visualize how small it is. Her body will take quite a long time, it’s all solid stitching in a few colors. And before I can indulge in another few hours IMC (Ida Mae Crow), I need to get some other stitching done. (note to self, it speeds up the process if you don’t attach the interfacing to the right side of the fabric).
