The Platypus Surprise!
I had bought the fabric a good ten years ago and then it sat around for a couple more years because as much as I liked it, I had no idea what to do with it. Then inspiration finally did strike, and I worked on it for a while and put it away and then repeated those stages a couple of times and it has been a couple of years now since I last looked at it.
Lo! And behold! All of the blocks were finished! All of the blocks were sewn together! All that it lacked was border and the long strip of fabric for that was right there! So I got everything pressed, and divided the long strip into fourths (one for each side of the top) and measured and cut and stitched and -- viola! -- the First Flimsy of Ought Fourteen!
I'm thinking you can prolly click on the photo to enlarge it if you want to see the platypuses in their resplendent gold-flecked glory (oh, go on, you know you want to!).
So I'm going to go ahead and make the binding and then put this back in the box until a very specific kind of gift is needed. And then the platypuses will go to their rightful home . . . .
