Last night I got the setting pieces added to one side of the first block and the first corner done. Once the first row is together, this will be a much faster process. And so far I’m staying focused. Staying focused on this is going to be a challenge, but my goal is to get this one finished quickly as I’d love to get a photo of the completed top out on the roof garden. And as we’re almost halfway through July, I know summer is flying by.
I knew getting the first row together would take a while as I’m following the original Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses setting. I can’t believe I’m doing this as I never follow a pattern but there’s something about the setting of the original that really appeals to me, so I decided to go for it.
Baxter was inspecting the first block with its setting pieces added.
Thankfully we didn’t get the rain yesterday. But a cold front did come through and with it came cooler temperatures, which was a lovely relief. Hopefully we get no more rain for a few days so the city can dry out.
“A Closer Encounter.” Baxter was showing his new little alien buddy something on his computer about visitors at Roswell.
I think this is my favourite shot of Baxter so far.
