Internet has been done a couple times and I found out that a whole region in our area was out because of "solar flares". My bills are paid, so I am sticking to the solar flare story.
Well, with no internet, I got my first BTCT border complete 100 %. Here's where I was a couple days ago.
With all the free time I had, I even got the embroidery done for the cherry stems.
I am a bit of a perfectionist, so the wonky stems are driving me a little mad, but I have to keep telling myself that I am reproducing an antique quilt and that is what has been the most fun about this quilt. There is no rhyme or reason to some of the things that are done on this quilt, so I am just trying to enjoy the whole process. If I corrected everything, then it wouldn't be a reproduction.
So...on to the next side. I have a rhythm going and want to keep it up until this quilt top is all done.
