I know, I know…

by Kate on December 31, 2009

I did say I was going to take a break from the machine and the Mac but I couldn’t farwell 2009 without showing you one last finished project.

Alfie’s ‘Blue Daze’ is finished. Am smitten.

Karen, has yet again done a fantastic job on the quilting and I am quite taken with the quitling swirls on the solid white. The quilt is bound in an orange Lecien strip and is big enough for my bed, perfect for Alfie to grow into.

And on that note, I hope you have a Happy New Year…full of fun times and happiness.

I look forward to seeing you in 2010!
