Sunday Reporting…What Was I Thinking??


When I said to myself, “crosshatching would probably look good on both the 9P blocks and the stripe blocks, why didn’t myself say back to me, “Well yea, it will look good, but it’s going to take you at least half the rest of your life!  Are you nuts?”  And that is assuming that I still have quite awhile left to live.

Are you thinking that’s not so bad? Well, between loading this puppy on the machine,  the SID stabilizing, and the crosshatching, this is as far as I have gotten on it.  And this took me 7 hours.  I’m kind of slow.  And I intend to use stencils and feathers in all that other space you see.  And this is how much is left.

It’s 110″ square.  Yep, gonna take me awhile.  This will be the Wednesday WIP project for quite awhile.  OMGosh! What was I thinking?!

On the upside, though…this one is MINE!!  And all the fabric in it is from my stash.  However, it doesn’t change my numbers this week, as I’ve already accounted for it, in previous reports.
