So I haven't quite caught up, but with a few little helpers, the peloton remains in sight. And those helpers are lots of caffeine and my sewing machine. I know this is supposed to be a handstitched class and a sewing machine could only be considered performance enhancing, but for me it was the only way!! The storm at sea corner blocks are designed to be English paper pieced - I admit mine were machine paper pieced. This left me a little time to catch up on my embroidery round. I will miss those running stitch half square triangles, but will be very pleased to see the last of the satin stitch jewels - I have found those lots of hard work. Only 5 and a half to go!
