I'm making some progress


I'm making some progress on the Truly Scrumptious BOM that I started 2 summers ago...

It's not the borders that are taking so long, it's the embroidery part that I dragged my feet on.

I hadn't done embroidery since I was a kid so the thought of all the work on this was daunting so I started, didn't like what did, set it aside and moved onto other things. This easter when I was trying to find a project to take to Myrtle Beach with me I pulled this project out and ONLY brought that with me so I was forced to work on them. I have 5 totally done and borders on.

I have 3 more blocks that need borders and 1 more in the hoop to finish the embroidery on. I'm hoping I can get this top assembled before the weekend is over....what do you think? I don't have anyone in mind for this quilt but then again, most times when I start projects like this I don't....I usually make em and set them aside till the appropriate recipient comes along.

I'm pulling for you to get this done! I'm embroidering my last block and I plan to put my feet up today and really get some stitching done.
