Slow but steady

I’m making slow progress (but progress nonetheless) on my rose stars.

I’ve already cut all the pieces to make enough for a reasonable sized quilt. I figured I needed 23 stars and 4 half stars to end up with something that will be about 60 inches in one direction and kind of squareish. I’m not sure exactly how square it will end up being because the maths is making my head hurt (hexagons are tricky like that).

These bring the total made so far to 13 and a half. Just typing that has surprised me. I’m actually over half way there.

Of course, then there is all the sewing together to be done. I’m hoping that being on the home stretch will make that part seem faster.

I love this little fox. He has such poise!

It’s so nice to have something that I can stitch in front of the telly, or while the kids are killing each other playing. It also has the added advantage of stopping me from eating all the cookies. It’s a win-win.

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
