Down to five...

...and what an awesome feeling that is!

So, without further ado...here it is...
You wouldn't believe how hard it was for me to finish this Tis the Season quilt. It's shameful, really. I have major issues with completion, that's for sure.

You'd think that when I'd finished quilting, those last few steps of putting on the binding and hand-stitching it in place, putting on the quilt label (which was already made, in this case!) and sewing in the threads would happen fairly quickly...but no :(

I put it off, and put it off, and then put it off some more. Finally, after giving myself a firm talking-to late last night, I stitched until my eyes were giving out, and put the final stitches in.

What a relief.

Thank you to every single one of you who have left me lovely and encouraging comments while I've been working on this quilt, especially those who have been stitching along with me in the Stitch-a-long group
...I really appreciate your support!

I wonder how long my unfinished quilt list number will stay at 5?

Oh wow, it looks great!! You are a seriously talented lady, but I think you're a little too hard on yourself, my dear. You crank out some amazing things and everything always looks picture perfect! Go Suzy! Woohoo about shrinking the WIP list though, it's such a great feeling!
