Congratulate me! . . . . .

I have finally finished the hand work on "Little Tulip Crossing" by Primitive Gatherings!


I can't remember when I started this one exactly but I think it was in August.


It wasn't like I could work on it every night.  I started selling the kit in September so it was packed and unpacked, hung up and taken down about a dozen times since then.


But last week when I realized I was near the end, I forged ahead.


The finished size is about 40" x 40" ..... cotton background with hand-dyed wools (hand-dyed by moi),  All the applique is hand stitched. 

Now off to make arrangements with Joyce for her to machine quilt it.  I don't trust myself with this one but I sure do trust her!

Blessings, Cathi
