I have more than one piece in my past that took more than 6 months to complete. With both Escape Attempt and The Rise and Fall of Old Mold House, it was the final stitches that took forever. Even though the stitching underway on this piece is not nearly so complex, I had myself mentally prepared for slow going, particularly after the time committed to earlier steps seemed to expand exponentially. Instead, my work here is nearly finished. Just a few more hours stand between me and an acceptably quilted piece. As early as tomorrow, I could begin binding the edges, signaling the last final stage and the conclusion of this project.
