I did it! I finally pulled the last blooming thread from the quilt a couple days ago. Miss Z has taken to rearranging the furniture to climb upon the dining table and lay down upon it, rubbing her sticky little hands across the ridges in the blocks. So I would certainly say she has claimed it for her own, even if I thought I had other plans for it! But now Miss Z has a bit of fall allergies and needs more cuddle time than usual, so I will start the re-stitching next week with some aurfil thread I picked up to try a couple months ago.
I have some other project news I want to share with you, but that will have to wait as well. I will also post the pictures of my rearranged crafting area, it has been a long time coming. I wish I had a picture to share with you, perhaps tomorrow I will see what I can capture.
