Surveyor’s Compass

Hey, I really did it! This is exactly the sort of thing I thought I’d never be able to sew.

I seem to have reversed the greens from what I meant to do. I’d intended to have them follow the same light/dark pattern as the big points. That’s probably one of those things that nobody but me will ever notice, though. (I hope!)

The mug rug is almost done, too. I quilted it last night and attached the binding to the front, so it’s all ready for me to try to figure out the hand stitching part. I was planning on doing that last night and had an episode of Game of Thrones saved up for while I worked on it and everything, but then not long after dinner I got hit with a migraine, so that plan was right out. All better today — I took my migraine medication and a dramamine and slept for about ten hours straight, and that seems to have taken care of it. I need to be more careful about sleeping, I think. Lately every time I get a migraine, it hits when I’ve been trying to get by on six hours of sleep a night for too many days in a row.

At any rate, I’m looking forward to giving it a shot tonight. And to my episode of Game of Thrones — I hated having to go to bed early last night instead of watching that!
