A big bit of denim

This weeks's Sunday progress report on my hand stitching: Little Elephant continues plodding onwards, but is un-photographed this week;  the denim moves forward too.  In fact I spent hours and hours on the denim this week, even though in theory the quilting should be the priority for various reasons.  I sewed several already stitched bits together into quite a big piece, and have stitched more since they were joined.  I've used the muted purple/blue thread quite a lot (even though in the pictures you can't tell it's there) but have also added more orange/red areas.  I have also used one little bit of the red that went into the first jacket.  

Next up I need to rummage through my big bag of denim and find some more of the darker stuff.

(I am going for concise, literal post titles this week - what do you think?)

This looks so fun! I am going to go back and see how this lovely piece has come together.

Isn't it funny how we get really connected to a specific project, even when the priority should be on another?!?
It defies logic and happens all the time to me!
