I started this piece Nov 26, 2011; that's the day I felt like I was catching a cold but wound up with pneumonia so there have been several days during the last 2 months that I didn't stitch at all. Of course I went through the phase toward the end where I'd put in a stitch and then remove 2 or more stitches. As usual, for me the only way to stop the trend is to put everything away and work on something else. So I got my sewing machine out and pieced a quilt top for a queen bed (sorry no photos of that yet). I'm thinking I probably have about 5 1/2 weeks of actually working on this one.
Here's a photo:
I can't wait to see this framed, but I don't know when that will be. I'm hoping that my middle sister or one of my DSILs will want this one. From the time I started stitching until now, it's always been my plan to present it to one of them.
