I don't understand how stitching leaves can go so fast, but the back-stitching takes forever (or feels like it does). There is still some stitching to do on the right side, but I'm going to add in some back-stitching to make the last go faster.
Unfortunately I won't be stitching Peacock Tapestry again until Friday. I need to make some progress on my Small SAL for February. I'm having trouble with the pattern I picked (the color, the constant stitching and stopping) but I don't feel like starting over. So I guess I'll have to persevere.
