I made more progress I finished row #7 out of 10 now finished. I gave the quilt a crank down on the frame and the end is really and truly almost in sight! One more crank of the bars and it really will be. I have a half of a row in this photo this is still turned under. (remember I am counting rows as the curved ends are so they are kind of large rows each curved circle on the ends is a row.)
I’m pleased with the progress although I did wish to finish it a little faster than I am doing. I started it the beginning of June and have 78 hours in on it so far. I had hoped to be finished with it by now – but it was beginning to feel like work! I had to start working on other things too.
I was notified a little while ago that I won another give away I was lucky and won one from the Green Fairy earlier this month – this one from the Fat Quarter Shop – how nice! 15 fat quarters – the “Growing Hollyhock” collection by Lynette Anderson. They aren’t my normal colors of choice but I am trying to make some things with other collections than I normally choose for myself. I haven’t a clue what I will make with this one. Mix them with some bright solid whites maybe to lighten them up somewhat – we will have to see.
The weather had said rain all day today – nothing since this morning still at 1 1/2 inches of rain from the storm, maybe more tonight? Looks like we lucked out, although the weather said to get out of the drought we needed 15 inches – we are lucky we didn’t get it all yesterday and last night. – Maybe more next month?
