[ one step closer ]

I was excited to come home tonight and get to work on my quilt.

I sewed my little heart out while watching the recap of today's events.

Ok - is it just me, or the TV coloring, or were Michelle Obama & Laura Bush's suits for the inaguration not attractive?!

I got all my squares sewn together (with only a little bit of seam ripping!) - then brought them upstairs to lay them out on the floor:
If you can't tell, I'm pretty proud of myself. The whole time I was sewing - each piece together and then to the next and the next - I was thinking..."WOW! I can't believe I'm actually doing this!!"

Of course, Samson had to see what was going on.

Apparently, he approves. :)

I don't think he realizes it's not finished...

Tomorrow, I'm going to try to sew the rows together...and then the rows to the rows...and then what? I don't know what to do next!
