    I think that is going to turn out beautiful. Don't give up. I have a hand piecing project I work on when we travel. It just takes time and patience.

I have a quilting frame and love to hand quilt, but I keep feeling like it's gonna take so long to complete, but why does it matter? It's my hobby and what I love! Enjoy piecing your blocks together and you'll love it when it is completed.
    I think you stated that perfectly. We are all in a rush, but unless we are working on a present for someone, who cares how fast it gets done. It should be about the process of doing what we love just as much as the finished projects. I enjoy having a long time consuming project that I can work on. That way I can work on it a little at a time as I feel like it and there is no rush to get it done.

    Keep going. It is too beautiful to give up. Remember to pace yourself-piece one hour_rest one hour. We ate all behind you!
