I added a flap and Velcro instead of the button closure. I was a little scared about going off pattern to add my flap and Velcro but it all worked out. Whew!
I didn't see the stray little string until I took the photo. The string isn't even attached, just a stray.
I have also finished the second Half-Square Triangle block. My husband says he is not so sure about how it is going to come together (and to be honest I am not sure either).
Other than that I am doing a load of hand quilting of a large lap quilt. I am not going to post photos until it is finished but it is a beauty! Lastly, I am working hard on selecting the right fabrics for the 2 new solstice stars I have to catch up on. I should have them done *knock on wood* by the end of this weekend. We shall see. How are your projects going?
