all i have left is to reverse applique those 8 little diamonds, then square off the square and put the entire section together. when i started this project in january, i wasn't working at all and had endless days to sew. no doubt i wouldn't be so far behind if that was still the case, but no matter, i like my job a lot and for sure the paycheck is most welcome. i still get to sew nearly every day if i want (except in beach weather of course), and so it is no big deal. like all my projects, they get done eventually. and after all, it's the process i enjoy most in addition to the end result.
