Finally Finished Tis The Season


Finally last night I stitched the final few binding stitches in my Tis The Season Quilt.  I think the deadline was tomorrow so I just scraped through. 


I had to wait almost 6 weeks for a parcel of fabric to come from the USA which contained the french red border and binding fabric.  I auditioned many other fabrics whilst waiting but it just had to be the french red.


But I did have a helper in finishing the quilt.  Jack offered his expertise on more than one occassion.



And I have been working on this lovely design by my friend Jenny.  It is the front panel of a bag pattern in her latest magazine.  It really is gorgeous and a pleasure to stitch.  The sun is shining here today but I have some swap gift wrapping to do before I can venture outside.  I hope you are having a lovely start to your weekend?

So sorry to hear of all your troubles. My really bad yr was 1991. I lost my 22 yr old son to a gun accident. Also had some health problems of my own. But, nothing compared to the hurt of loosing Andy. May the new yr bring you all better health. Love your work. My crafts help with my down times,too. God bless and keep you.
