I found myself stitching behind the wheel on Saturday while waiting in the parking lot of a restaurant in Coventry.
(A little trimming after reverse applique.)
I am using 60 weight thread as much as possible. This coverlet will weigh quite a bit when finished, and the 60 weight may hold better than the silk on the larger items.
I don't like stitching in the direct sunlight, however, it is easy to see.
