As Midnight Draws Closer...

And as the last hours of 2012 wind down...there is absolutely no doubt about it...even if I cheated and used extra Northern Hemisphere hours (which I can't anyway as I have to spend a lot of those hours at work tomorrow so no stitching going on)...I'm not going to have my Stitch-A-Long Some Kind of Wonderful quilt top anywhere near finished...so I'll be continuing on with the quilt top from the SAL sidelines as midnight tonight was the final extension granted...so where am I up to?


I don't think I posted the suitcase and bird blocks even though they were finished a while back...I changed the locations on the suitcase labels to places I've actually been to...that makes all the blocks for rows 1, 2 and 5...the house would be finished if I hadn't gone and done renovations...just like the real thing they are taking way longer than anticipated!...the shutters are still being installed...

The rest of the blocks for rows 4 and 5 are in various states of appliqué/stitchery almost done to oh draft I forgot to back baste yet...I'll just keep on stitching away on those as time and motivation levels permit...the various squares and rectangles that make up the background of the quilt top are all cut out ready to assemble once the blocks are finally sorted...

Happy Stitching and a Happy and Stitchy 2013 to Everyone...
