Unfortunately for this quilt, the Olympics did not last long enough. I was really making progress, while watching gymnastics, swimming, track & field, cycling (who knew that watching a bunch of people race around on bikes could be fun to watch on TV?), and beach volley ball (is it really a sport if you play it wearing a bikini?).
But the Olympics are over so I had to find an alternative. This weekend, House Hunters on HGTV served the purpose. (House Hunters follows one person or couple's search for a home they can afford in their desired location, with all the amenities they want.) This show is perfect to watch while hand quilting because you don't have to pay close attention. Sure, the show isn't quite the "reality tv" it is made out to be (surely most home buyers look at more than three properties!) but it can be amusing.
Just one more block and the sashing and border to go. There could be a lot more house hunting in my future.
