Signing Off


Here lies the quilt that I have stuffed up. Happy how the embroidery turned out and am very pleased with the quilt top. But in my mad rush to get the quilt done for Emma's birthday, I did a truly shocking job with the quilting. Please, please don't look to close!! So I am going to unpick it all in the new year and start from fresh. In fact I am going to make it slightly wider and get it professionally quilted.
Because as you know if you're not happy with it in the beginning you are never gonna be happy with it!

Well today we head off to the North Island back to my home town Wellington for Christmas. It's been 5 years since the last Christmas at home. Amazing how time fly's. So, so excited!! The Aunty's have great plans for the kids. It is going to be a very special trip.
So on this last note I would like to say thank you for all your lovely comments and support this last year. To think that at the beginning of the year I didn't even know what a blog was. Crazy I know!!
Its been lovely meeting you my bloggy friends and I can't wait to next year where I make it over the ditch to meet some of you in person(Wow wee!)
Merry, Merry Christmas to you all!!!!!!!!!!!

That is such a beautiful quilt - red and pink and white quilts are my favourite and that it exactly what I have in mind for my daughter when I eventually get around to making her one. The quilting looks fine to me but after all the effort of making such a beautiful quilt top it would be a shame to always be unhappy with it. Have a great Christmas in Wellington.

The quilt is gorgeous. I've only quilted 5 quilts and each one has flaws. They look fine if you stand back and squint eye eyes! I'm hoping it's something that I'll get better at the more I do! Have a fabulous Holiday!

I think that quilt looks gorgeous - extra special with the embroidery too. They really are going to be treasured heirlooms so best you be happy with the end result.
