Hand Stitching

I seem to be the worst blogger lately, I cant share anything at the moment but I have been stitching lots, for upcoming projects!!!
This one Im currently working on needed to be soft and dainty so I chose to work the quilting by hand. Its been years since I handquilted anything, my Pfaff just makes machine quilting so easy, and Id forgotten just how relaxing it can be.
It took me awhile to get back into the swing of it and I could definitely benefit from more practice but Im pleased with how its looking so far. When I first started quilting, I hand pieced and hand quilted everything and you really do miss it!

I actually got to use some of my stencils which made me happy!! Hopefully over the next few weeks Ill be able to do some more and improve my stitching but Im really glad that I gave it a go!! It is quite relaxing and fun and I achieved the look I was after!!

I love to handquilt too, but you are right, it does take time. Your stitches look perfect to me, I am not sure what else you could do to make them better.
