Not a creature was stirring..........

And by the time I finished stitching last night it was very quiet indeed! This wall hanging was all but done before Christmas last year and then Christmas itself "got in the way"......and the rest as they say is history......All it needed was some hand quilting and the binding so on Sunday I finished the quilting and last night I sewed the binding......and here it is all ready for Christmas 2008! The light at 6am isn't that great for photos though!

I am in full time "finishing" mode at the moment which could last a while as I have lots of projects which "just" need the quilting/borders/backing/binding! LOL.... But it is great to tick another project off the list and get to enjoy it in its finished state. This is a pattern from one of my favourite designers, Natalie. I have started stitching the girls from Truly Scrumptious and they are looking great but have been put on hold while I am in the current "finishing" mode.

The prince and I have just got back from our morning walk and it looks like another perfect day here - I am thinking I would rather have grey clouds and rain rather than "perfect", but since I can't change the weather I might as well enjoy the sunshine! I am sure the rain will come....and sooner rather than later would be nice!

I should be getting ready for work - it's "hump" day today - middle of the week and all "downhill" to the weekend! Off to the city to watch Rhi play netball on Saturday and do some shopping for a new lounge - the one we have is certainly well past its "use by" date. Sunday looks like it may be tailor made for stitching! Well - that's the plan and I am stitching - sorry sticking - to it! Enjoy your Wednesday.

Finishing projects! I am so impressed! I'm thinking I might do some of that next month! (Anyway, Christmas comes every year! It's not like there's a use-by date on your wallhanging!)

I love that stitchery another one on my to do list which is getting so long I will have to live to be 200 to finish them all.

it looks fabulous and isn't it great to finish something off!
i'm enjoying the weather too and it's great for the holidays but i'd be quite happy for it to rain. i have enough indoor fun for the kids and to be honest, they would probably love to be outdoors in the rain! hopefully there will be some soon. until then, enjoy your walks.
