TOP DONE--

I finally did get the top done for the Bee Blocks--
I stitched in 2016 as a bom--
and remember that I already started to put the top together--
once last year--2017--!!!
and it went from here to this--
and we I decided it as way too busy and you really did not see all the stitching
and coloring of each block--
so I had "frogged" all the lattice rows and just had the pile of blocks that is in the first photo--
and now here the Bees are--
(didn't find anyone tall enough to hold it up for me to take the photo--
there is 5 rows all together here--
I am still not sure I love like it--but--this IS the way it is staying!!
I have bought sooo much fabric to finish this one -
it is not even 'funny'--
I will probably use some of them to piece a backing for it!!!

***** Days stitched last 2 weeks--12 out of 14
***** Days stitched this month --so far--26 out of 29
*****Total hours stitched last 2 weeks--13 1/2 hours
****Total hours stitched this month--so far--22 1/4 hours
and I am happy to say that the hand quilting on the Shabby Roses quilt--
which is this months project is done--
and the binding is sewn on for the first step--
just need to do the hand sewing to tack it down--
so I think I will make my OMG for April????

           ENJOY EACH STITCH--
WHETHER BY HAND OR MACHINE--DI
