The scaffolding is still up in the dining room- I guess it will be staying there until the mudding on the drywall is done. Makes a nice monkey gym for the little ones when they are tired of being couped up because of the cold. And it makes a mighty fine place to have the kids hold up a really big quilt. (I took this picture before the lighting was installed, so it is kinda blurry and dark as that flash is almost useless in such a big room. And it a BIG room- I think it is something like 18'x30'. I hope I will have room for several dining tables and lots and lots of people.)
I finished this quilt and got it in the mail just in the nick of time for them to get it by Xmas. Forgot to add it to the gallery, down there. Yes, there is a mistake in the quilt. Found it, did ya? Well, I seriously considered doing something about it... but decided eh, it'll keep me humble. The pattern came from Evelyn Sloppy's 40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts. It wasn't a hard pattern, but I did get a little weary of hourglass blocks. Don'tcha just love scrappy quilts? I am now working on a two color quilt and it just doesn't have the sparkle of a scap one.
I'd like to give you a heads up, Sarah- http://www.alwayswantstobequilting.blogspot.com/ a little trial she is going through. Her daughter ran headlong into her son and she cracked her cheekbone- and is having surgery, today, as the break is causing muscle problems in her eye. She is a sick little girl and I know you guys are praying people, so I am sure Sarah would appreciate it.
