...............that's my state of mind a lot of the time!
I stitched the text using my trusty sewing machine this morning. It is always a bit scarey to start machine stitching on a piece you have spent a lot of time on in case it goes horribly wrong. It is so much harder to unpick than hand stitching! Thankfully, it went well and I'm really pleased with the result (though the photo is a little dark).
Now I need to stitch some French knots to dot the "i"s, then I can get on with the quilting.
