Update Nov 15, 2011 - this thing is gi-nor-mous. These Texans... everything is big in Texas. Today I'm putting the binding on. Then the goal is to hand-whip 6 feet per night. Let's see, uhm, 60 inches per night divided by 480 inches equals 8 nights of hand binding? Yikes! I wonder if I'll make my "Mail This By December 1st" deadline!
Update Nov 24th - Thanksgiving Morning - Hmmmmmm, I could continue hand binding, even though my wrists are BURNING UP! Or... I could cook a turkey and mash some potatoes. Hmmmmmm... decisions, decisions.
Update December 3rd - Well, I didn't make my December 1st deadline - but I DID make the first Saturday of December Post Office line! Yeeeeeeehaaaaa! Can't wait to see a picture of John & Elise snuggled in their gi-nor-mous bed all tucked in underneath their Christmas Quilt on Christmas Eve. :)
Update December 4th - Can't wait, So excited!!!!!! Love, Elise
Update December 5th - Robbie - Holy Smokes! I gotta tell ya'...I usually don't get all that fired up about a quilt but in all honesty (and I am being as much of a straight shooter as any long tall Texan is gonna be) I am really looking forward to having' this here quilt on top of my long lanky Texas frame. Being' all snug as a bug in a rug...well, dagnabit, I'm all a-quiver and can hardly wait for that goll-dern postal weasel to show up at the old home place. Dang it all to heaven, I'm plum excited!!!!!!!! John
