Finished, except for the label and hanging sleeve. I'm so excited to have this finished and I just love and adore it.
I backed it with Maison de Garance by French General and bound it with Rural Jardin also by French General. I love the traditional colours of Christmas so this seemed appropriate and it seemed to hold all those amazing colours of wool together.
Thank you Sue for a fabulous pattern, I want to make another now (I might just have to as youngest daughter is desparate to have it...!!) but I need to do something else for a little while.
Just think, if I hadn't tried to chop off my leg a few weeks ago, I wouldn't have had an enforced 'sit down' period and I probably wouldn't have it finished yet...good things do come from diversity after all...!!
I sandwiched and basted my Japanese quilt at patchwork today so I'll start quilting that tonight I guess, gotta keep those fingers busy......
