Finished and Almost Finished

Today I finished stitching down the binding on this UFO from 2014:
Bonnie Hunter's mystery, "Grand Illusion". Another finished quilt to cross of the list.

Meanwhile, my Garmin Vivofit has just about reached the end of its useful life:
Can you tell how many steps I've done? Many parts of the display have stopped working over the last few months. At first it didn't matter, as I could sync the device with the computer and read the total there. But the syncing process stopped working in April.

I know that I've reached at least 10,000 steps, because of that half a "1" on the left-hand side. But no part of the "thousands" column shows up at all any more, so until I get to 10,000 I'm in the dark. And if (when!) that remaining part of the "1" fails, the Vivofit will be of no use at all. I bought it in October 2014, which was the same month I started getting together the fabrics for Grand Illusion. But it has reached the end of its useful life just as the quilt's life is beginning.


  1. Congratulations on finishing, another lovely quilt. How many stitches in the quilting? I know your machine counts them.

  2. Your good counting your steps! I cannot believe that this device would stop working after only a few years, so annoying! Love this quilt. Never made one of her mystery quilts, perhaps when the kids are grown up a bit, Christmas time is always so busy!
