As promised, I'm baaaack. Here are the Cecil sleeves blocking.
This one is up close and personal; I think you can see the stitch pattern pretty well.
And, finally, here's a zoom-in on one of the sides with the rod inserted.
It is a FABULOUS afternoon, and I'm going to go play. First on the list, a run down to the garden to check on this (I'll bet it's grown since I snapped this two days ago):
My bleeding heart. (All that green stuff is something called garlic mustard -- very invasive and a pain in the butt. There's a nature center nearby and they have garlic mustard-pulling events every spring. I battle them constantly.)
Cecil looks gorgeous. I love that stitch pattern. And very ingenious with your curtain rod blocking!

Thanks!! Cecil is ready for seaming! I usually procrastinate on that for a bit, but once I get going, it's full speed ahead... I love how straight and even the sides turn out from using those rods for blocking rather than pinning every inch or so (and the time saved) and I think it will make seaming a bit easier, too.
