One to Step 3 ~ WIP

I was finally able to complete all of stage 2!!! YEAH! The funny part is I told you last time that this stage was very hard for me... Well, I think I figured out why? I did the wrong stitch. I did a cross between a puff and popcorn stitch... And that's not what it called for. That's why it so tight and seemed to take forever to do. Go figure, I guess that's what happens when I think I know what to do and didn't double check to make sure I was doing the right thing. So now this is no longer the Sunburst... It's a modified Sunburst, or Sunburst-esk.

Even though I am only showing you the first one finished at stage 3 I am almost done with that stage also. Sorry I just haven't had time to get on here and post the pictures. I know its silly I take all these photos with the grand intentions of doing all this blogging and I just can't find the time. 

I love these colors they are going to make a very happy blanket when its all done. I can't wait to get this stage done so I can get the white on there and join all these squares. I still don't know if I'm going to do 4 x 10 or 5 x 8. I think that I will enter it into the fair next year.

 Speaking of the fair. It was suppose to start on Monday. I guess it did as for the judging of animals and such. Grim and I found time to get out there with the monsters and see what I won if I won anything. Well, wouldn't you know it they didn't have all the entries out for display yet?!? The woman told me that she might be all done by 7pm and if not she would be done the following day. This was at 2 in the afternoon. Girm told me I needed to get on a committee and get them people crackin'. That every thing should be done for opening day. So needless to say I'm really disappointed. I wasn't able to get back out there to see my afghan hanging, to hear what passerby's might be saying. I will be going on Sunday to pick it up and will know then the results.
