Advent 23: I must be mad...
You may have thought I'd forgotten about this quilt? To be honest I have it 'out' in the sitting room all the while to remind me it needs finishing. I pick it up every now and then and do a bit of hand quilting. If I am honest it has become a bit of a chore. It took a couple of months of fun swapping and stitching to create the top. The quilting is not so fun though. So maybe it seems a bit mad that this close to Christmas I've spent the last couple of nights with it on my lap quilting.
All I can say is I've been bored being confined to the house during this awful weather and as I haven't felt Christmassy it doesn't feel quite so 'mad' that I'm working on this and not...doing Christmas stuff.
