Finished ...

I finished my quilt a few days ago and although I posted about it on my blog I forgot about posting it here :)


I'm quite happy with how it turned out, although I should have been more accurate when I trimmed the stitchery blocks, a couple were a bit large which in turn made it a bit difficult when it came to putting all the blocks together, as some of them were a smidgen larger than others.  I'm planning to make at least one of the projects from the Tis the Season book, I quite like the look of the Christmas Angels Hanging Pocket.

Congratulations. Isn't it a wonderful feeling!! I've started the bag - but haven't progressed very far. Like the wall hanging, too.

Pip, It is just wonderful...oh, I am so, so envious, happy for all of you that are finishing up but still envious because I am still limping along. Summer arrived here suddenly and we have been so very busy I haven't had much time for any sewing and I've been having some weird issues with my eyes and I'm having trouble seeing my stitches. I do have the first three finished but have not yet taken photos for Chooky to post, hoping to do that this week some time. All the same, I'm loving the project. Again, yours is just wonderful, are you going to make more than one? Hugs...
