I really learned a lesson last night. And that is that by chaining by hand, I can stitch a fairly large number of the HSTs in just a couple of hours. Just over 50 of them are in that nice little stack – all done by hand last night. I put an Aurifil spool by them just to give it some perspective.
I’m thrilled by this as I have, up until now, pretty much avoided blocks that call for a lot of HSTs as I figured they’d get pretty boring to stitch. But this way they’re fun.
