One row done!
And about halfway up the next. I think twelve squares will be about the right length, as I intend to crochet a border around all the blocks when I'm finished with them. This is going much faster than I thought it would, although it will come to a crawl here shortly, as I hope we'll be headed home soon and then there's a gazillion other things I'd rather be doing… and I have the monster quilt to finish.
The plant is still having some issues coming up to full power, so we've been delayed again. As of yesterday, we might be leaving on Saturday, but I'll have to wait until Jim wakes up to find out if that's still the plan.
