ta daa...

Look, look! It's all finished.
I've been stitching away at this little quilt for a few weeks now & it is now all done & ready to be thrown up on by a wee little monster.
I'm so glad I didn't have to piece the front together, the hand stitching took long enough & let's not talk about the binding...You can see how ruley truley excited I am by the goofy grin on my face. Why is it so hard to smile nicely when I'm in front of a camera?
And here it is in situ. Our home is built like an alpine lodge... very, very dark. Hence the need for flash.
Yesterday was spent in bed with enough energy for crochet only. Today however, I've pushed myself. I managed to source some energy from somewhere deep within & get some stuff done. Which is good, because we were running a little low on groceries. Pea & pasta soup was made for lunch, 8.5 litres of toasted muesli was made & I've taken a heap of photos.
So you might see a bit more of me over the next few days... there's alot to show.
I'm not feeling too cranky either, so consider yourself blessed that you wont have to listen to too much rambling.

It looks great, congratulations on getting it finished!! I am still hand-stitching Matilda's that I started almost 20 months ago before she was born.

Pregnancy can be so debilitating can't it, I hope you get a wave of nesting energy soon.
