One Quilt.......Done

...as Gordon Ramsay would say!

The quilt I have been finishing for the last few weeks is finally finished and gifted to one of my oldest and dearest friends, who is about to undergo some gruelling medical treatment.

I started off wondering if I liked the colour and design choices I made and ended up loving it. Here's some pictures of the finished article and then one of it being modelled by the recipient of it!






If you click on this one, you can see the dedication I sewed in..




We spent a lovely day with Mary and I even went near some horses. As my daughter's godmother, they are amazingly similar, and one of the passions they share is horses. I am amazingly UNpassionate and slightly terrified of horses, but yesterday I fell in love with a small shetland boy called Panache. This is us together...



...and that's as close as I am ever going to get to anything remotely equine, let me tell you!

Well, on this last day of 2007, I want to wish you all a happy and healthy 2008. May it be all you want it to be, and filled with plenty of knitting! I have a bundle of resolutions I am planning to make, some knitterly, some not, and I shall be back over the next couple of days to share with you. Have a great time tonight if you are celebrating in the New Year and seeing out the old.

Happy New Year! The quilt is beautiful and I share your (fear? avoidance?) of horses - I admire them from afar but don't need to get closer. LOL!

Gosh! I have a 22" quilt kit (for a beginner) which is daunting enough! Well done on that!

Happy New Year
