My crazy quilt Beggar's bowl taking shape
My bowl is taking shape - although it's hard work for the fingers to get the needle all through.
As the fabric scraps are not only for decoration but also stabilizing and shaping the bowl, I have to use a lot of backstitches for quilting and holding them down and must pull them quite hard. Although double and firm, the thread breaks now and then.
It's slow sewing - and almost meditative.
