Waa Hoooooo.

I'm so sorry it's taken so long and I have completed other projects and this little ole flimsy has sat for ages waiting to be quilted, so while the weather has been absolutely crap awful I finally pulled my finger out, along with all my basting gear and got 'Tis The Season' finished.  I didn't follow the 'piecing' instructions and chose to do the sashings in just the two fabrics while adding a small red pleat as the first border.
This little project has been refreshingly simple to do so now I'm ready for the next SAL (did you hear that Chookyblue?).
I hope you are all able to make the most of this wet Winter that has decided to join us.
hugs
Miche'le
