I finally finished all 48 (yes 48!!) half square triangles. I felt so accomplished!!!
Lately, if I have been sitting, this is what my lap has looked like. Any free time I have had has been dedicated to this project because it is so portable. I am able to take it with me when I am sent out of town for work, which I can't do with my machine. It has been a nice change of pace.
I just started on the jewels this weekend. I practiced on my least favorite colors. Haha. It definitely takes doing a few to get the hang of it. (I promise that the brown looking red color is actually a dark raspberry).
And yes, I have had tons of help from the kitties. Balls of thread are WAY better toys than anything sold at Petsmart apparently. Back to stitching!
