Baby, it's cold outside! I know, I know. It's even colder in Wisconsin and the Dakotas. It's all relative, though. I am dreaming of summer vacations and weekend trips to the beach. Instead, our fireplace is being used every day. It's warm next to the fire. Our tabby cat K.C. (for Kitty Cat), also known as Run KC, likes to stretch out by the fire. Unusual that he was not hanging out there when I snapped this pic.
After spending Saturday cooking and cleaning, including a sock drawer purge, my Sunday was clear for some power sewing. FINALLY finished the last 11 blocks for Celtic Solstice, as this king sized version has a total of 121 blocks !!!!
Here is a view of my Celtic Solstice with the inner and outer border. Oh no, can you see the flaw in the top row? I will fix that - my seam ripper has been working overtime today - and begin assembling this week. Yes, I have the orange triangles ready to go, just forgot about them for the picture. Yesterday the backing was ordered from Connecting Threads, along with the backing for Grand Illusion.
Speaking of Grand Illusion, I made three more flower blocks, assembled the border, and laid out the pieces to see what it looked like. Hmmm....
