Here I am!

Happy and content! At last I am ready to show you my quilt top,finished this
morning,Sunday January 16th.2011,a big day for me to remember!


I am very pleased,love the pattern as well as the fabrics. Just a few of
my own stash,but a full kit from H&P with the lovely border/YAWA-fabric
from Japan. Long way for the border fabric to travel: Japan via
Australia,then all the way up to Norway.The trip took a long time,but
worth waiting for.

But mind you, I have seen lots of other quilts at our blog,and I could
easily have changed my fabric range!! And I do really admire you in
our group who has done 2 quilts and my admiration goes to those of you
who do the quilting yourself. And not to mention how great if you only
have used your stash!
My quilt top is going to the long arm quilter one of these days.

Anyway,if you haven`t finished and you are not as lucky as me
(no work,all days free-LOL!)do not give up! This year or next or
sometime in the furture, you`ll finish. Such a lovely feeling
finishing each block,then posting it. And I`ll be watching you:))))

Till next time GOOD LUCK to all my SAL-friends,glad to belong to
this group.
