Quilathon-Lunch Break Progress

Wow, I'm farther along than I thought I would be. The body is all sewn, the piano key border that I thought was finished needs a couple more keys on the top and bottom strips. I always forget to add the side numbers when I'm counting. At least that's an easy fix.

During one break, I did a short walk through the garden before turning on the sprinkler. I picked 4 tomatoes! We've had a few cherry tomatoes but these are the first big ones. So I had a tomato for breakfast. And it was delicious!!!

After 99 minutes (that's as high as I can set my timer), I went back out and turned off the water. Gathered a few eggs, gave the chickens and dogs fresh water and went back in and put the pedal to the metal. This is where I left off. I decided it's lunch time and the dogs want back inside to nap!

I have a movie that I want to watch so I think I'll fill my water glass, turn on the tv and see how far I get with this. I see a finished top this afternoon.
