No not the conservatory - that will hopefully be next week as far as the fitters are concerned - of course the rest of it is then down to us with lights, radiators, floor covering and furniture needed to complete the job.
My scrappy stars and hearts quilt top is done! Whoo-hoo!! I started it on 30th December 2006 so it's taken me about 17 days.
I'm really pleased with how it's turned out - I do wonder if the four flower applique borders might be a bit too similar in background colour. As I've added totally different corner hearts I think I've negated that a bit, but now, looking at the photo, part of me does wish I'd done each side a completely different colour - oh well you live and learn.
Now all I have to do is sandwich and quilt it. Bet that won't be done in the next 17 days :o)
I've kept calling it my scrappy hearts and stars quilt but I think it deserves a better title than that - mind you I can't for the life of me think of one so any suggestions would be gratefully received.
My dearly beloved husband has been awesomely tolerant while I've been stitching this particular quilt top. As I've used so many different fabrics I've been spreading them far and wide in the play room where my machine is set up. Some of you might recall a post last year (Sorry it was May last year but blogger will not let me add a link ;-P ) where I showed off my nice neat stitching area - as you can see from these photos it'll take more than a bit of sorting and folding of fabric to get it back to that condition. Each time the occasional comment has been heard about not even being able to see the carpet I've used the construction of this top as an excuse for not tidying up.Now I can no longer use that excuse - GULP! - suppose the next job had better be a tidying up session - boring!
