It's very time-consuming to do. It takes me even longer to sew on than the Hellsing patches, and they took an hour each!!
On the bright side, soon all my friends will go back to school or college or whatever, and i will be left all by myself for a few days to sit and sew piping before i start work. Eek. This also means a few days stewing alone, fretting over starting work for the first time!
...Any progress is good progress, right?
