Finish

I've finally finished An Angel's Story, the top that is! After much procrastinating I've finally put those last few stitches in and now it's ready for quilting Yippee!
It really needs and iron but I was in such a rush to show you the ironing could wait!

Vikki's giveawy prize arrived so you can pop over here and check out the tote bag I made especially for her.
And I also sent a surprise to Bec, go and check it out!

I've made a start on Life is Beautiful, gorgeous quilt by my lovely friend Helen
again with the no ironing but I had to show you my weekends work. I'm going to complete this quilt using French General's Rural Jardin fabrics.

Did you all have busy weekends and get much stitching done?

Well done on finishing An Angel's Story, it looks terrific, even ironed, so it will surely look even better once you've completed the whole thing. I've just finished another stitchery, so just Dimity and Hettie to go, and I've started stitching the squares together so the finish line is starting to come into sight.

Did you use that special stuff for behind the stitcheries? I have never used it so not sure what it is like>

Congratulations on the finish Jo! I remember talking to you about how I was going to finish mine, well not there yet. The Life is Beautiful stitcheries look lovely, will have to check the quilt out at the Crow Girls.

Jo, your Life Is Beautiful is going to BE beautiful! I just ordered the pattern from Helen and can't wait to start it. :-)
Can you tell me where to purchase the pattern for the bag you sent Vikki? I love it!

Oh Jo! Your quilt looks fabulous! I made loads of the blocks but never put them together into a quilt - I rather wish I had now!
