Fa La La La La

A couple weeks ago, i was given this cross stitched top. i won't mention any names for fear she will be flogged
Her aunt stitched this years ago and she said it just did not go with her 'stuff'.  Thought i might like it.  "Okay", i said..."if i must". Are you kidding?  
I love love love it...thank you Sue.  i loaded it onto my longarm a couple days ago, enjoying the process of quilting something for myself. I hope to finish it up today.  Merry Christmas!

  2. That is beautiful. A quilt like this doesn't need to match anything in my opinion. You're gain. LOLL Guess she may want it back once she sees the lovely quilting you're doing on it.

    Happy Christmas Karen

  19. Gorgeous! I, too, think she may regret giving this away if she sees what a beauty it is now. It looks like you didn't stitch at all through the cross stitching. Is this accurate? I would have thought they'd poof out without it but they aren't.
