It's done! I completed the LAST of those Snail's Trail blocks during Monday Sewing! Yeah!! There was a total of fifty-three 2 ½" units to make. That was a LOT of cutting and a lot of fussing, especially since most of it was done as an ender and leader. It doesn't matter - they are done.
Five of them went on the bottom of the beach house block. This will make a cute little wall hanging. I have several small projects that need quilting. I'm leaving them on the sewing table so I can just GET THEM DONE. Notice - that these five blocks are not just completed but actually sewn together. So what about the other forty-eight blocks?

Yep - they are all together in a row!!! Yeah!!! That was a HUGE job to get those together, and that is the worse row of the entire quilt! And it's done - that's all that matters. My first row completed for this quilt, and we only started it in January! Actually, this is my second row - I do have a row of trees done.

Since I was feeling so excited, I grabbed the next set of blocks for another row in the All in a Row quilt. These ones are going to be a breeze. I need to make 12 blocks. Four are already done.

I have to find a bit more fabric for the background, but the rest of the components are cut and ready to sew. I see the flood gates opening up here!!! I might actually get that mess on the sewing table up-to-date. How fun would that be?

I don't know what has happened to our girls, but they seem to think that digging in a new national pastime. They started with the hole by the fence, which I think was because a rabbit had its burrow on the other side. The rabbits have moved on and so have the girls. Look right dead center in this picture to see a new garden "ornament."
