All caught up

I seem to be getting good at stealing. Stealing time that is. We had a wonderful time with our grandson staying over last night and didn’t get the promised early morning as he decided to sleep in until 7.00am. Apparently that is an hour later that usual so all was calm. His Mum and Dad came to collect him late morning and stayed for a while planning to return later in the day for a family meal.

I stole an hour before lunch and then another hour before the family arrived for a lovely Bank Holiday roast dinner. Four generations, my mother, me, two of my sons, one daughter in law and grandson. A full table but a happy one, it is tiring sometimes but so worth it to see them all together tucking in.

I stole another hour this evening and at last I am all caught up. It has taken me longer than Judy predicted but I didn’t want to rush it and I only had to do reverse stitching (otherwise known as unpicking) once and that was the first one. All the 24 stars are completed and I even spent sometime deciding where all the colours will go when the sashing is added.
I am really please with it so far, what do you think?

Your blocks look great. Doesn't it feel wonderful to have them all finished!! Funny, when I looked at yours I thought it was mine! Our colors are very similar. Too funny! Mine is all solid though.
