Slow Stitching Sunday

It has been a few weeks since I have shared progress on my Lake Effect stitching. The task continues to be enjoyable, and finally, the long pieces are beginning to look like waterfalls or pools of water.

These pictures show my progress, which really isn't very different from the last time I showed my progress; but when I basically only work on it every other Friday, the going is slow. A bit of a problem is occurring with some of my hexies when they don't come together exactly as they ought. I confess that I made my own hexies with a copier and scissors before the laser-cut ones came in. So precision is off because of my impatience. I am trying not to obsess too much over it, as I know that once the papers come out, the stitching can be eased in and adjusted just fine. You can see one problem hexie in the next photo.

Below, you can see what I have done in a few places. I sew all around the problem and leave the "gappy" parts open. After I take out all the hexie papers, I will go back to those unsewn areas and whip them into place. No stressing for me over this! I refuse to let this sort of thing bother me. It will look fine in the end, I am sure of it.

That's my slow stitching report for this week. The gang is partying over at Kathy's and her weekly Slow Sunday Stitching party. Go have a look around!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
