With most of the squares laid out and some cutting still to go, it didn't seem too big a job. I thought a solid day sewing and it would all be put together. How wrong I was. After sewing and cutting for 6 solid hours I still had two thirds to go and had to get my family to carefully walk around the carpet to get to the dinner table.
My design rug is right in the middle of the house and the main thoroughfare to the living spaces. The family are fairly used to my mess so I left it there on the floor over night. Another whole day and night of sewing and still not done.
Finally, day three and here it is.
