Ta Da !!!!!!!!!!

I have finally finished my UFO. It is a wall hanging with needleturn applique and hand quilting. I sould still add more quilting in the borders but it is okay for the moment.

I bought this as a kit probably about 12 years ago and did all of the work except for the binding back then.I can't believe that I haven't done anything about it until now.

An interesting thing is that I have always liked Santas, and moons, and so now 12 years later it is quite possible that I would have still chosen to make this pattern ( although maybe with different fabrics, there are so many more choices now.)

And I can see that I still need to work on my blog skills to try to get the photos in the places I want them. But for now my goal of finishing and posting is complete.

Well done - something finished. I am always impressed when someone finishes something. Isn't it interesting that you still really like it 12 yrs later? Congratulations.

Thanks for stopping by my place, Bettsy. What's more, welcome to bloggerland! It sounds like you are in the same boat as lot of us, like to piece more than quilt? Or borders can be a bugaboo? Meanwhile, the top or project just sits there for 10-12 years antique-ing.

Cute kidlets and I love how your husband described the internet and blogging--talking to imaginary friends. Good one but not quite what really happens!

That is an adorable quilt. I think your blogging skills are better than mine, since my pictures are all the same size and in the same left hand side of the blog. I have managed to put the words to the right, but your layout looks good to me. A lot of it is limitation of html and not you.

I'd like to echo LindaJ and say thanks for stopping by. I'd love to be your imaginary friend.
