More Slow Sewing

How long does it take to sew a holiday banner?

Longer than I thought. 
I forgot about triangle blocks and having to square them up. So I did a lot of ripping out of stitches.
It doesn’t help that my sewing machine is acting odd. It goes for 2 inches and then tries to stop, tangling the fabric into the hole where the needle goes. I’ve tried putting in a new needle but that hasn’t helped.
So here’s my how my progress looks.

J in Joy

The “J hasn’t been appliqued yet. 
If you missed the orgianal post on slow sewing it’s here.

I think it will go faster now that I’ve made it through the first block. 

What have you started and found it hasn’t gone the way you hoped?
