You may remember back in December I talked about finally getting around to starting my Great Wilderness afghan after it being in my stash for a lifetime. Well I'm happy to say, this past Tuesday evening I finished the first of 20 blocks. Woohoo!!
The first block I chose to work on was what we all thought was a sun, until I started looking at the directions on the chart and it says to "backstitch the craters of the moon...", so my moon, 3,200+ stitches of various shades of yellows and creams, is now done.
And since I've made this my Sunday piece, and I'm typing this post on a Sunday for future publication, I'll be starting my next block later this afternoon once I'm done with all my chores. That block will be the tops of some trees. So, as the ladies in my Saturday stitching group pointed out yesterday, instead of complaining about all the yellow, now I'll get to complain about all the greens, LOL! Hopefully with more stitching time on my agenda again, I'll be able to get this next block done quicker than the 4-1/2 months the moon took me to do.
Until the next update...Happy Stitching!
