I am working my way around the R.E.M. piece to get the stitching done at the edges so I can sew on the facing binding and the hanging pocket by August 1. Here again is the entire quilt and the piece I am now stitching is the denim at the top right area.
Here is a close up of the before
I got a couple of hours of stitching done, but I had to stop to mow the grass. I also stitched for about 20 minutes before work and here is where I am right now on this section.
I looked out back before I went to mow and this little fellow was taking a rest. He got up and ran away once I started mowing, but then came back. I was mowing the front first and when I went over to the other side of the front yard I saw him again looking at what I was doing. He then ran back across the yard when I went into the back to dump the grass, but continued to watch me. He finally took off.
I only got about half the back yard mowed. The bugs were getting to me and the sweat was dripping after an hour and 10 minutes so I called it quits.
