The Non-Wash Line Blues

I am very happy that I have been able to get a lot done on Singin' the Wash Line Blues this weekend. I added some more blue to the sky and started the quilt. When I started the piece I had wanted to do all of the blue background before starting the quilt or birds, but after finishing what was left of the background on the first page of the chart I really wasn't feeling anymore blue 1/2 stitches! lol

Yesterday was a pretty blah day weather wise, woke up to snow on the roofs, lawns & cars, which was all gone by 1, but it was still chilly & grey all day. It made for good stitching weather though, didn't do much besides stitch here and there and watch some basketball (Thanks UNC for keeping my bracket alive! lol).

Here are the before & after pics and above is a pic of what the complete piece looks like. These 2 should enlarge when you click them.
