It has been a year,
not a year of constant work,
but a year from start to finish.
It was last February
while I was staying in Denver,
helping to take care of my little grandson and granddaughter,
that I began this
There was lots of prep work:
and more fusing ,
along with some help at the ironing board.
("Hey, Nana, I think it works better like this.")
But the blocks got done.
Well, not done completely.
There was lots of button hole stitching to do.
I even had help with that.
Then all the borders were appliqued,
half square triangles made,
and the top was finally pieced together.
Last week I got out my Perle cotton
and started big stitching.
Big stitching doesn't take too long
It is big stitches, after all.
So here it is all done,
Not bad for a calendar year,
even with help.
