It's been quite the hiatus, and it seems the most appropriate that my first update of the new year reveal my progress on the medallion quilt. It's so incredibly satisfying to hang it up and photograph after every few rows, otherwise I end up looking only at bits and parts as I work on it. I'm starting to have serious anxiety about if I'll actually use this one, or safely store and preserve it for posterity. Seems cruel to pack it away in the dark somewhere, even though its the best way to preserve it. Thousands more hand stitches to go, I guess I have some time to decide.
