I was able to get Sunday tickets to GenCon so I'm feverishly working on getting my square done. Now if only my head would stop giving me headaches so I could get more done!

Sadly, because I've been being lazy, I've had to remove my second quilt square from the list for this years quilt. It is in progress, but there is no way on God's green Earth, that I am going to finish it by tomorrow night even if I somehow managed to do nothing else today and tomorrow, which isn't possible. I am still on the first page and despite my best efforts, I am not moving as fast as I'd like to. I seem to have developed some kind of thing where setting my left elbow down anywhere sends tingles up my arm and into my hand recently, so that isn't helping me right now, but I could have been much further along with this had I not procrastinated so much in the last few months... My finished quilt square is making it's way to the post office today on it's way to the Canada address.

I have bad news too. I really thought that after my surgery I would have all the time in the world to finish my two squares. I guess I didn't anticipate how much pain I would be in. Plus the pills they gave me to take away the pain left me sleeping all hours of the day and night. I'm still working on them but I fear I'm working too slow. They'll be ready for next year tho!

so close to being done my second square! then off to the post office! i joined a gaming contest that i thought would last 4-5 weeks, i stayed in it for over 2 months, so that is what has put me so far behind this year.

Ugh.

So the block I finished is 96x96. But its not 6 inches.

Do I add a border to it to make it 6 inches or do I send it anyway?

Hi everyone! We'really home and baby boy is doing well, so I'might going to try and get my square done after all. I still have 2 pages of a 6 page pattern, but they are the 2 smallest so I'm optimistic about getting it done on time. Wish me luck :)

Finished my square and dropped it off at Toni's house tonight since we live in the same city. So check your front door Toni :)
A pic of the finished square is in the finished square thread.

You should have knocked, I was home!

You live in London? How did I not know that a Sprite Stitch member was here in London! Or did I direct you to Sprite Stitch? ;)
