So after the holidays were over I went back and ordered this kit and started washing the fabrics the minutes the box came into the house. I had it in my mind to have it done by January 23.....our anniversary. That was less than 3 weeks, but it is cold and terrible outside really. So it was a nice focus when I couldn't do much else!
I worked on it while the Silver Fox was at work and luckily.....he is tired when he gets home and doesn't pay attention directly to what I am working on. I didn't use my design wall like I usually do either.
By January 23, I had all the main components and blocks done.....I just needed to put the whole thing together. I sewed 6-7 hours that day and got the whole top done. It is wonderful and even looks better in person than I can capture on film.
