Sore fingers





Finally, it's complete! Last night I finished the last stitch of the hand stitching of the binding on this large quilt that I have been working on for sometime. Miss Puss must have known I needed company to get me to the finish, my little Research and Development Assistant is always willing to test new quilts or knits. We did it together and I really like the finished result, a lovely warm cosy quilt for the family to use on the lounge this winter. I have a few left overs from these two quilts so maybe I will make a small quilt for the lonesome lounge chair or a couple of loud cushions for a pair of sea grass chairs that are looking a bit naked in the dining room. Not today though I'm on a mission to finish a pieced bag for a friend and I'm well over halfway now which is good because she's off overseas next week and this is a bag she has planned to use for the evening dining events, she's very organised with her wardrobe.

The colors in your new quilt are beautiful. I love the contrast of the black and hot pink! You do beautiful work.

Miss Puss seems to approve too.

Love the colours on your quilt - looks really effective, and adds a nice splash of colour to your sofa.
