Cliff Richard where are you....

Please indulge my moment of self congratulation.......

click on Cliff to share the song in my head....
Well Quiltober came to a close and I can happily say that my hexie garden quilt is totally quilted!!! (thanks to the public holiday today)
I am so happy, Cliff Richard is singing in my head, it doesn't help that I am a bit of a Eurovision tragic either...
I can't believe I managed to hand quilt this quilt. I have enjoyed every step of the making of my scrappy garden. Thanks to those that contributed to it through the hexie flower swap and just because they were bloggy friends.
Now I don't usually show my moosh on my blog but this calls for a celebratory pic. 
. I just want to walk around wrapped in it for awhile, just to savour the moment.




The binding is cut and ready to go..... Roll on Bindvember.
Definitely happy dancing!!!!
cheers
Marina
