top job!


well I have finally got my top pieced, WAHOO!!! I am really pleased I have got this far, and most of it was due to last Friday evening. It was quite fun putting it all together, and a bit like catching up with an old friend really, as I had completed the stitcheries many moons ago when we all first started this stitch-along.


~ all I need to do now is sort out the borders, I so hope to have this quilt finished by the end of the month....hmmmmm


enjoy your week!
