Yesterday I fused the final two blocks for the flamingos.
And then I fused the palm trees. I blame the palm trees for the foot-dragging I have done on this project. See all those little nooks and crannies? They're tedious both to cut and to top-stitch.
But, hey, I've cut and stitched the last of these. Pop! (That was me opening a bottle of champagne.)
Also, I was able to top-stitch the beaks and the eyes on the final flamingos.
When I ran out of time yesterday, I was just getting started stitching the pink flamingo bodies.
Today I'll finish them and their skinny legs, and the blocks will be complete. And let me just add a big YAHOO!!! So forget the Hallelujah Chorus. I think this calls for something more uplifting, so, hm, let's see. . .not to get all patriotic and everything, but I'm thinking a little music from the March King is in order. If you can't see the video, click right here.
But that's not the only momentous thing going on here at the Three Cats Ranch. These two cats actually bumped noses as their first greeting of the morning, and ate their treats side by side with no hissing.
Now that's something to celebrate.
