No, I did not drop out from TIF. It has just been progressing very slowly... I'm back to my routine now and spent the afternoon on it, watching a couple of TV series. I've done quite a bit.
The picture is full of wrinkles because I use a loom, and since I've used a blue fabric pencil, I cannot iron it. Ykes! So far, i've used stem stich, button hole stitch and sorbello stitch.
