Quilted - Bound - Hanging (almost!!)

Here it is: showing you my completely finished A GARDENER`S JOURNAL.

Great guys holding the GJ: my DH and his friend both hidden behind.
They are off to a Sunday fishing trip on the ice. Only -25 Celsius on
this specific lake,that is -13 Fahrenheit. Bet they enjoy themselves!!!

So this journey has come to an end :-(
But as a new one is on its way,I am happy as can be :-)
It has been lovely knowing you. Take Care so long and
I`ll be seeing some of you approx.on March 1st.

Your quilt is beautiful.

Brooke said...

Truly an amazing accomplishment. It is spectacular. Where will you display this masterpiece?

I get the biggest kick out of how many men regularly appear on quilt blogs hiding behind quilts. Nearly every quilt we see here in blog land has a little row of knuckles above it. The snow boots are a nice touch. :)
