Chicken Quilt on a Cold and Frosty Morning.


I have a deep desire to finish off various projects that are lying around. I'm swirling headlong towards Christmas and the children start to break up for the holiday in two weeks time. Until late last night and before anyone stirred this morning I wielded needle and thread at the hand quilting on this Chickens quilt, completing at least some of the rustic style cross stitch. This quilt has been ongoing since the beginning of the year so I can't let it extend over into 2010. It was a lovely frosty start to Advent this morning, so I decided to pin it up outside to take a look at its progress. I love the way the warm colours make me feel inside!
The pink quilt for my daughter on my last post is now complete with binding and ready to be labelled on the back so that she can always remember the Christmas I gave it to her.

  9. Clare this is a delightful quilt! It is worth of your hand stitching. Is this your own design, dare I ask?
