Tis the Season to Celebrate....

... because I'm done!  WOOT!

I finished this over the weekend but needed a model to hold it up (thanks, Lauri!) It was a little breezy today, but this will do!  Loved - loved- loved working on this!


Very excited about starting the next one.  Decided to dive right in and finally teach myself to applique!  I can't wait to see the difference between the first and last block!

Thank you, dear ladies, for your amazing support this round.

Looking forward to another season,
Stitches,
Elisa
