It's finished. Completed. Accomplished. Concluded. Wrapped Up. Done.
Can you tell that I'm doing a little happy dance? Yup!
See? I have the fingers to prove it. Those are my "catching" fingers.
Although I stitch with either hand, I usually stitch with the needle in my
right hand. I can use a thimble on that hand, but I need to keep the fingers
on my left hand uncovered so that I can feel when the needle has passed
through that fabric. It's not painful - and I didn't draw any blood - but
I think I've lost the feeling in the tips of two fingers. (lol)
I know that both fingers are calloused from the needles, but I'll put my
special cream on them and they'll be good as new in no time flat.
This is my entire finished block.
How many hours did it take? hmmmm A few. Well, more than a few.
But the truth is, I really enjoyed the time I spent working on it.
I'll be showing it to my friends at our guild meeting on Tuesday night.
I can hardly wait!
