Notes

Now for the question, If i were to make this again, Would i change something?: I would change one thing, instead of putting 4 DC at the top of each DC and only 4 in between, I would just put 7DC on each side of the square in the mesh.

July 22, 2010 = Will take a picture of the mesh once it is completed so you can see it build up. I am so excited about this project! later that day FINISHED THE MESH!

July 23, 2010 = Finished the first color of the border. Family reunion tomorrow. hopefully i can get a lot done on it.

July 25, 2010 = I just finished the second color of the border. It is looking GREAT! I am taking step by step photos, I hope you all enjoy! later that night = I am finished! my finger kinda hurts.

July 26, 2010 = I have been working on the white, It gets tricky around where the watermelon will be at, so i went ahead and worked the Forest green and the white at the same time. will post updated photo once before i go to bed tonight. = before bed = I have finished with the forest green, mint green, black, and the orchard pink. only the hot pink and white to finish it up. Should have it done tomorrow so i can get it out in the mail! YAY!

July 27, 2010 = Finished with the white. Only thing left is to fill in the watermelon. Should finish it tonight!
