The project goes on, but there won't be the pressure of the deadline anymore. Any more panels I make can join it when they are ready, so I can work as and when I feel the urge. This one was very ambitious, and I realised today that I have done it all by hand, apart from the final edging that holds it on the backing cloth. The only machine stitching has been put on it today... so I'm also proud of me. I also managed to do that much on the machine. So I may try and do little bits of machine sewing, leading to some new clothes for me.
I'm feeling relieved and encouraged and inspired... It has been a wonderful experience.
