What Two Hours of Stitching Looks Like

When people look at my embroidery they often ask, "How long did that take you?"  The fact is, I don't really keep track of it.  But, I did take before and after photos from a recent three-hour flight.

Can you see the changes?  They're all above the right eye.

Given the fact that I used the bathroom, ate, chatted with my seat mate, etc. I would say that this can be counted as two hours of stitching.  It's a slow process, but I love it!

If you're interested, I did some googling and I found two answers I agree with on how long hand embroidery takes:

Also, there's a super fun tutorial from Brit + Co on how to turn hand embroidery into a patch here.  I might have to try that one!

Thanks for stopping by!
