Done!!!

It's 11.32pm in Saudi Arabia and I am done! I didn't think I'd make it... but I did. There were a few casualties along the way, however. See if you can spot the problems:


Sorry the photo is a bit dark, but my camera doesn't work well at night... anyway, I didn't spot the problems until I was quilting the bottom right hand corner and then... well, it was way too late. So I decided not to stress but do as the Amish do and say, no one is perfect, only God.... I think however, that rather than having a humilty "block" in my quilt, I could count the whole thing as a humility "quilt" :) Ah well.. I like it anyway!

I got the label on. My first ever label!



A big thank you to all of you for encouragement along the way. I have made new friends, and enjoyed the journey. And a HUGE thank you to Chookyblue for cracking the whip - otherwise this would have ended up being yet another ufo!!!

To all those who have finished - well done! To everyone else - keep going! You can do it!!! Now I am off to bed.... night night..... and Merry Christmas :)

A finished quilt is SO much better than a UFO - and mistakes just prove we are human!! It can be your little bit of quirkiness. Well done
