Shade fly–Update II

I should change the time stamp for this post!

The major construction of the front (most difficult) part of the shade fly is done!  (joyous noise)

As much as I want to continue on, I need to make sure I don’t slip into night owl mode!  I’m stopping at the point of sewing the dags on one side.  To complete the other side, I need to finish up more dags (and go get more bias tape….)  I guessed correctly, I was 1/3 short.

Okay, here is where I’m at:

The green flaps are pockets for the front supports.  I split them in the center so as to be able to tie stuff to the support.  (Like curtains!)  This picture is before I sewed everything down.


Here is the front stretched out a bit…I have the dags pinned on the right side, ready for me to work on in the morning.  I can’t wait to turn it all over to my hubby and let him finish it off!


G’night, all!


  1. You're ridiculously productive.  I'm tired just looking at what you've accomplished.  It's beautiful.   

  2. That is GORGEOUS!  Nommy green and beautiful work.   

  3. Awesome! You're insanely ambitious.

  4. GO YOU!  And *THIS* is why you are going to be a Laurel.

  5. Wow! Gorgeous already! I can't believe how much you were able to get done already! Amazing! Did you have a pattern? I assume not because you are just that amazing, but I had to ask.......
