A finished object! (UFO's linger round here for a depressingly long time - I obviously have a short project attention span)
I have one friend locally who also enjoys craft (yay!) and she had a big birthday last month. I really wanted to make her something, and when I saw this tutorial by Aneela Hoey I knew it was perfect. (Let's gloss over the fact that by the time I came to the end of the project I was going through an agony of indecision and had convinced myself she would hate it - does anybody else get like that about handmade gifts?). Fortunately she loved it - and she is now planning to make a first communion version for her niece.
Anyway here is the finished mini quilt:
I can't believe how much fun it was to do. I was nervous, but I really loved it - I now have plans for three - one depicting each of my children in their favourite pastimes. I just need that extra wednesday.......
