yep, the block for week #4 is done so i am current with this sew-along. this is very good indeed. i've also been doing some secret sewing, which i will be able to share very soon. plus the hawaiian...despite working on it nearly all month, i am only about half done with the third quarter of getting the top basted. i may just continue on with it, hoping it's ready to baste by the end of the year....maybe? **** we are in a cool spell here, this morning was 59 and has now climbed up to 61. fans and a/c units are off, and i'm actually wearing sweat pants today. **** it has been a tough week overall but not so tough it couldn't be tamed. still suffering negative effects of an unnecessary surgery in 2010, which cannot fix itself. but finding a provider who will facilitate this here in maine is nearly impossible. until then will hobble along and be grateful it isn't worse.
