Finally - after being thwarted at every turn, firstly by the camera then by blogger who wouldn't play ball, here she is - Flightless Beauty, where she belongs, on our bed :o)
I'm delighted with how she looks and the fit on the bed etc etc etc.
A few days ago when I tried to take this picture the previous time I left her on the bed hoping the camera would miraculously cure itself later in the day. Needless to say it didn't so the quilt was still on the bed when DH and I came to settling down for the night at bedtime.
As the weather here has been pretty warm she's more than a little hot to sleep under so I got him to help me fold her up commenting to him how pleased I was with the end result.
I've probably told you before that he is a man of few words particularly in the complements department
His response was ...............
Oh is this for our bed then? It's very nice, really matches the colours in the bedding.
I despair, I truly do - he watched me stitch it virtually through the whole of last year, I commented at regular intervals how pleased I was and didn't it look nice and won't it go with the bedding, and then much to his disgust I've spent the best part of the last month working on it quilting and finishing it while he's moaned about - and I quote - 'That Bloody Quilt!' etc etc etc........and it still hadn't actually registered that it was indeed for our bed
Which planet are these men on?!?!?
