Something finished

Finally, my eldest's birthday quilt is finished, way after the birthday, but done.  It did take a lot longer than I anticipated, as quilts always do, but having H choose all her favourite fabrics to put together did avoid me dilly-dallying.
  I used a bit of everything, hand sewing, embroidery, piecing by machine, some crochet, lacy trim and a doily or two.

My favourite piece, background made with one of H's tops from when she was about 6.

It was fun to make and it all came from my fabric stock.   No new purchases, wonderful.  

We draped this lovely piece of fabric behind her clothes rack.  Oh, does it feel good to craft and decorate.

Although, I must add that with so much rain around, and a chill in the air, all I want to do is bake and bake and bake.

Have a lovely week all.
And the quilt will count as my August monthly make, I am lagging behind.
