This is going to be a long project

I recently discovered Alabama Chanin thanks to Pinterest.  One image of a textured burgundy coat caught my eye.  On closer inspection I noticed the child like giant stitches and too quickly I dismissed it as clumsy.  But....after being attracted to the image again and again, I went in search of more.
Looked at the website, looked up the books on Amazon, looked for fabric locally and here I am!
Completely hooked.  I'm not that intimidated by the total hand sewn idea.  I say that now because I haven't quite started.  I've made some sample blocks that I'm total enamoured with and now I hope I don't stall.  As you can see from the photo above, it may take awhile.
