The final block has been stitched (close to 84,000 stitches). Block 9 is the other side of the fence line and looks almost like a mirror image of block 7. I am in the process of putting all the blocks together. This can be a challenge. Everything has to line up close to perfect. I will have to do a little pulling and stretching to make it work. I will use invisible thread on top and have decided not to use anything to cover the seams. I don't want to distract from the picture. So.... with this post, I'm only going to show you block 9 and as soon as I put everything together, short of quilting it, I will post a picture with the total scene. Hard to believe that I've gotten this far in just over a week. Stay tuned for the finished product.
Other exciting news for the week is that my dream sewing room will become a reality over the summer time frame. We will be adding 500 square feet of sewing and crafting space to the house. I knew someday that all this property would have a use and can't think of a better way to get rid of some of the yard work. I will post pictures of the progress throughout the summer. All my machines will have ample space and I will even have a section for all my scrapbooking supplies. This will truly be craft/quilt/embroidery central. Ready girls? Happy Sewing! Carole
