A finish

First, my hubby used bed springs as trellises in the garden for a real funky look- haha- as though weeds didn't get the funky look best.  Our cucumbers have tried "dozing" on the funky trellis. I bet he has a stiff back when he awakes.

I have a finish of epic proportions. tada!
I am so very happy to have this finish. I forgot to fasten the hanging sleeve down, so it is showing at the top. It is more than queen size but not king. The pattern was a block of the month designed by Nancy Rink called Mill girls. Each month's story was about life at a clothing mill in the 1800s, collected in the form of letters. It is a way of life, none of us could imagine. I loved piecing the blocks, the directions were great, but I let it languish when it was time to put it together. I was afraid, I didn't have the skill level, or the patience. But if I had waited much longer, I wouldn't have had the muscle strength to man handle it LOL.

The project I am working on this month, snow days, languished for many of the same reasons.

Now I can focus on it, and make progress. This was finish for a customer. I love her choice of colors.
