Surprise, surprise!

Look what I found in a bookbag in my bedroom! I started this this past summer when I drove out to Colorado with a friend. She was moving back there. I had pieced this, and began to hand quilt it on the trip. It's about 47" square.

This was draped over my quilt frame, and my husband stopped and stared at it. "Wow!", he exclaimed. "Tell me we're keeping that!" LOL! It will live in our kitchen (with dark red walls behind it). Just a little more hand quilting, and the binding and sleeve to go. I'm going to get the binding put on in just a minute here.

There will be time for a little hand sewing at church tonight. My DH and oldest 5 are going to a 24-hour retreat starting at 4 PM. For some crazy reason, I volunteered to prepare supper tonight and lunch tomorrow. At least I can hand sew when I'm finished with my responsibilities!

Off to prepare binding...
