Needlework Tuesday - Almost as Good as a Finish
After arriving home, I was back at the sewing machine. I was determined to finish all these blocks and get the rows stitched. It now measures just over 80 x 80 inches. I used about 3 1/2 metres of white and 1296 - 2 inch coloured squares. I had pondered adding a couple of inches of border, but when I laid a strip on the bed, it hung over the sides a few inches. Good enough. Once I get some batting, I'll be ready to quilt.
Even with the air conditioning on, I find it warm to be sitting with an afghan on my lap. Thank goodness for my room fan. I doubt I'll have it finished in time for the baby's birth, but with the temperatures lately, it won't be needed right away.
I hope that if you are experiencing high temperatures in your area, that you are coping and that it's not keeping you from your stitching. Do you have any special methods you use to deal with the heat?
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I hope that you are having fun and making progress on whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment. Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your current post.
