I’ve been back to work on my state bird quilt again. Ryan had to do the late shift at ESPN (he works TV hours!), so I spent my evenings doing needlework last week — how quaint. I managed to complete four in the past week-and-a-half. This, from the woman who didn’t even look at the things in four months. As mentioned in one of my very first posts on this blog, this is my longest, ongoing project ever. I will be so happy when it’s finished. I have 20/30 done, but I have to go back and do the lettering still.
I had this brainy idea to tack my newly completed birds to the kitchen cabinets, so they would look like they were flying. But after the photo shoot was over, I realized that my kitchen is no Posie Gets Cozy or Yvestown. Mine needs a coat of paint and some updating. So, you only get to see the cropped version of one, nameless, stateless bird. Will this project ever be done?
