I was in Spotlight this a.m. getting fabric for another project when I saw a solid the colour of dark watermelon. Bought it. Cut it. Sewed it.
It photographs poorly. Think watermelon. Think dark watermelon pink. I like it a whole lot better.
So now all the HSTs are made, the next job is to sew the squares together. The baby shower is in 12 days.
Thankfully, the builders moved a little bit faster - once they finally arrived. Large patches of the deck were rotten. The builders discovered the boards had been laid straight on the dirt and old concrete terrace. Boards that aren't supposed to come into contact with the actual ground. Hence, the rot.
It's been interesting coming home each evening to see their progress.
It was even better to come home on Friday and find it finished.
