Well, this has to be a good sign, right? One of the three "sandwiches" has finally left its perch: And here is an even better sign; it's actually getting quilted: (For some reason, this is the step that always gets delayed. I have a block about starting to stipple and I don't know why. Does this happen to anyone else?)
And here is an even better sign still; the quilting is done and it's been neatly trimmed: I just love the look of stipples up close 8) I can never resist taking a closeup, (though I may have to rethink my aperture, this one's a little fuzzy.)
All these good signs must mean something, right? TaDa!!! All done and laundered. I just have to label it, and that doesn't count! I like the striped binding, too bad I'm practically out of this fabric now.
The Blanketeers have decided (well, Rachel and I have anyway) that we'll participate in the Pat Tillman 42 in 42 Challenge again this year. What this mean is that we have to have 42 blankets done by the end of May. Our stretch goal for the year is 200 blankets, so technically we should have more than that done by then anyway, but that's not how it usually works, you know. lol So what this REALLY means is we have to get busy and STAY busy. Like full steam ahead and man the torpedoes busy, so wish us luck!
