Tis the Season

I had a late night last night, putting the final stitches into the binding of my Tis the Season quilt, just in the nick of time for the September 30 deadline(finished with less than hour to spare. lol).  I'm really thrilled with the final quilt, and am so grateful for the encouragement and gentle prodding by all the girls at the Stitch-A-Long blog, where you can see lots of other versions of this quilt.  You wouldn't credit how one design can look so different in so many varying colourways.




My photos haven't come out very clearly but I hope you get the idea of the final look.

So now my rugby watching evenings will be filled with some other WIP's needing serious attention, I won't bore you with the list, there really are SO many!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend, whatever you're up to, thanks for stopping by today................Nicky
