A little progress........

I worked on smoothing out the light center on the right and added a few more greens.  Actually everything in the bottom right corner is green but a lot of them are blue greens rather than bright greens so the photo doesn't capture the real look.  I also moved the bottom row down one space again and added in more pieces to fill in.  I have several more days working on it but standing on the cement floor in the basement is getting to me so I'll have to pace myself.

I took a break in the afternoon and sewed some more Crooked Cobblestones.  I actually made 22 of them but the rest didn't get in the photo shoot.
5 years ago today I started my blog so our nation and my blog share the same birthday.  Happy 4th of July to my US readers.

Happy blogaversary, Wanda! You start my day every day - you work is always beautiful and inspiring. A little tip - you might want to try some anti-fatigue matting in your basement. I bought a section, about 3' x 4' at H.Depot, very reasonable price. Happy 4th!
