who's up for a happy dance?

Yes, it's done! This is probably a record finish for me, as I am a verrrryyyyy slow stitcher. But I've just been so excited about this project that I couldn't put it down! The kids have been good sports this week about letting mommy stitch during the daytime hours, otherwise I'd still be stitching my bricks!

I still need to grid off the other blocks for everyone else, which I will do soon. And I have changed the shape of my neighborhood. Because I cut the fabric for my original idea, there was not enough room to do a border (with our names), but I think I've come up with a very good replacement idea.

I'm also very glad that our little group is complete - I hope Novia and Rachael and Annemarie will all soon be back in the full bloom of health, though!

What a clever design! You really made it your own. That's what this project is all about. : )
