Completed--join in the happy dance

So so happy (horrid head cold has made me not feel like doing anything much), so I have just puttered around in my room and stunned myself and finished Tis The Season  tablecloth.Was stumped for the quilting and ended up thinking to self there was enough going on with the fabrics so keep it simple...

have not go the energy to clear of the table to pop it on and take a photo so the floor it is.

Close up of the quilting.. I used a lemoney colour thread and it looks great -stands out better then the photo can show.
Cheers Vickie
