Joseph's Coat Rows 1-5 it is.  Rows 1-5.   The blocks for the final 2 rows are done, but not yet connected.  This is taking far longer than I'd anticipated.  PBS cooking shows got me through the morning.  Triathalon and Rugby in the afternoon.  WHO KNEW that Utah has a National-Finals-Worthy Rugby team.  Learn something new every day.  Go Utes!   (This applies only to Rugby....not Football...Go BSU!).

I wish I had the final joining instructions for this project before I'd started.  Had I known how this was all going together, I would have done this differently, saving 3 yards of fabric, endless color positioning stress,  and 10 hours of stitching.  {sigh}

Tomorrow is Rolling Thunder, military family charity motorcycle event supporting The Wounded Warrior Project, the Idaho Guard and Reserve Family Support Fund, and Mountain Home AFB’s Operation Warmheart.   I'll be with Harley Dude.  (Yea...I made those burgundy leather 'gator chaps...I'm ambivalent about the bike, but I really like the costume.)
