A Long Time Coming

I have finally finished my longest running top!

The center of this piece was finished a very long time ago.  It wasn't speaking to me then, so I put it in the closet and it slowly faded from "in progress" to "unfinished".  Every year or so I would pull it out to try and decide what to do with it, but I would ultimately return it to the closet untouched...

But this past week I decided that enough was enough and it was time for this to work it's way out of limbo.  Some simple borders finished it up nicely, and now I'm wondering what took me so long!

Woodland Sampler - Three's a charm?

With the completion of the August block, 2/3rds of the year are finished.  I've also been working on this piece for two years.  Might year three be the charm that finishes it up?  I hope so!

All of the remaining blocks have been outlined and are waiting to be filled with cuteness!

Neutral Expansion

My design wall is growing!  Almost half of the log cabin blocks are made, and cutting for the second half has been started.  And the best part is that I'm liking the design more and more as it develops.  Win!

I have also learned that six blocks is a much more reasonable stack to chain piece than twelve!
