I don't know what to do with myself now

I can't believe I actually finished this beast. It turned out really well, and it's got some serious heft. The last time I posted about this was in October, when I was about halfway done.

I really don't know how I'm going to occupy my time now...


Update: somebody at Crochetville asked how long I thought it took me to make this thing. Here are my calculations.

Each piece takes an hour to do, so that's 410 hours. There are 21 rows, and it took me half an hour to wash and block each row before sewing it together, so that's 10.5 hours. Sewing each row together and weaving in all the blasted ends took about 2 hours, so that's 42 hours, and sewing each new row on took around 3 hours, so that's 63 hours. For a grand total of ... 525.5 hours, or 21.89 days.

M - you're a freak. :) Although, now that I say that, I wonder how many hours it takes me to make a king sized quilt. Probably not that many, unless you hand quilt.
