Mike, what a week we've had together! You never failed me, not once! Bit by bit, day by day, things are happening here, thanks to you!
Here is the week's yield of 6" CW blocks for my queen-size project. I may be more than halfway there in the block-making phase. Lori, do you recognize some of these fabrics? Once I realized how some different fabrics can breathe new life into a stale project, I quickly organized a CW F8 swap among the folks on my little swap list and before the end of the month should have more than a dozen additional choices!
Thing Two is taking shape! As of this morning, all sixteen blocks are made and they are ready to be assembled into rows.
Handwork progresses slowly in front of the TV; the Democrats helped a lot this week, and now the West Wing reruns (Netflix) are doing their part. One of the cow-makers who doesn't stitch any longer sent a lovely cow drawn on background with designated colors. I'm working on that embroidery in the evening currently.
Some progress has been made on assembling the cows, but a couple of nights I passed them by because of the need to change thread to work on them. I think with some concentrated effort, this afternoon I might be able to get the rows all put together and begin to consider borders . . . .
I have 11/12 of the blocks I need to put together a second Quilt for Kid, and just might receive that last sawtooth star on Tuesday evening when I see Turbo.
My biggest upcoming challenge is going to be resisting the urge to dive into the fabrics I bought yesterday when the Executive Committee had an outing to Burkholder's. I received the award for most money spent. Even with the 25% off coupon!
