Finally Finished something early

In my life, it's not often I finish something early.  I'm usually the one who is stitching at midnight the night before anything is due - but this time I've had the luck of doing lots of waiting while I was doing the little stitcheries and the putting together was quick.

Here it is:





Thanks to Chooky and all the girls for their encouragement.  It's been fantastic to look at what everyone else is doing and be inspired by variety out there.  This has been a lovely journey.  Inspired me to start the Gardener's Journal Quilt as well - I'll get some photos of that soon.  Just into the stitchery part at this stage.
