I just noticed that it has been 12 days since I last posted. Sometimes time just gets away from you. I thought I'd better let you know what I'm up to...so here goes. I'm still trying to finish my PhDs before the deadline of June 30th. I really want to finish them this year as last year I only finished one of the seven or eight projects I listed. This year I trimmed the number to three in hopes that I could actually achieve my goal. So here is my progress on #2.
As you can see I've got half of the center put together. All of the blocks are machine appliqued although nine will have buttons added when I've finished quilting. The bottom half still needs sashing and the whole thing will have narrow, white side borders. I'm also adding pieced keyboard borders and they are finished and waiting.
They took about four days of cutting and sewing. Of course that four days of time that is quite limited at the moment. My little puppy is still keeping me quite busy, but at least since I added the play pen I can get some sewing finished. Here's a picture of him supervising food prep from the back of the sofa. He's a diligent food prep supervisor even though he only gets puppy food!
