I am still marching across the lawn. I have two more grid blocks to go on this row. Don't ask how many more rows there are. I don't want to think about it.
I've got more border done on each side and two birds have now joined the menagerie.
I've finished the leaves and now get to do the branchy things on the crewel thing. I am learning two new stitches. The stem stitch and the satin stitch. I had the stem stitch going really well until I noticed that I was sewing the side fabric to the back.
I would love to say the end is in sight for the hand quilting project but at least I can see the end...of the quilt. I am on the row next to the last row but I still have to go all the way around.
Of course the machine quilting is moving along faster. I am on the last row which is always interesting because I get carried away when I get close to the end of the material and usually end up making a mess of some sort. Yesterday I ran out of bobbin thread right when I had just a smidgen to do. I hate when that happens.
