There has been a small amount of progress with Lepidoptera. It has finally been basted, but sits there, next to the sewing machine while I stare at it. It isn’t an effective strategy for moving the project towards finishing.
Other than some minor stitching-in-the-ditch, it is about all of the action I feel able to take right now with it. The quilting of Fancy Foxes II has made some progress. Almost 3 of 4 of the foxes are completely quilted, but the quilting continues to be a struggle. It’s primarily why staring at Lepidoptera instead of quilting it has become an Olympic event. Last night every stitch put into the foxes was ripped. Every last one. The longer this continues, the more confidence this mind game consumes. Maybe I’ll just have to go with it, keep the foxes moving forward until completion despite the lack of confidence in the result. Maybe it will give me some confidence to quilt Lepidoptera.
