Celebrating the Season with a finish...

Started in August 2011,
here's my version of Bronwyn Hayes "Wish Quilt"
(hand-pieced & hand-embroidered)

I just sandwiched the quilt top yesterday evening, and have now started the hand-quilting.

The original pattern was totally red and white,
but I used some green fabrics, as well...

and also put in some additional appliques,
such as ...

holly leaves, cardinal birds, a big snowman button...


tiny stars...

and pine trees .

There may be some little "uggly ducks", here and there,
but that's me and I made it with all my heart,
the cherry on the (Xmas) cake being that my
youngest daughter came for lunch yesterday,
and immediately begged it for her home...

Yessssssss......

ENJOY THE SEASON, MY FRIENDS !
