I forgot...

I forgot to post and show you this last week, it has been hanging in my  kitchen since I finished it the other Friday evening, during the Friday Night Sew in,

 This is the tiny corner that is my dining area, not so sure that it looks that great here, I might pop it in the bedroom, ..maybe... but then it wouldn't be seen by so many people

hmm think about that, thanks Chookyblue for the hoozle on, this has been sittiing in my to-do-list, and now it is done!!
Now to think about what to use for "tis the season...

I love it. I am sorry I did not find this group in time to join in. I may give that one a go, once the Tis The Season is finished.

I am getting excited. I am going to pick my fabrics out this weekend and get ready.
