Have you ever started something and thought to your self while working on it ( I should have re-thought this one ). I have to say had that moment this week. After sitting for about a hour, only to look at what I done and realise it was only a small part of the bigger picture. Now don't get me wrong I love this quilt I am making but after NOT doing a lot of hand stitching for awhile well the hands are a bit soft at the moment ( I know a big sook ). They are toughing up and it is getting easier. The quilt in question is Helen Stubbing's " Daisy Dance" and I love the colours , design and even all the stitching because I know it will be so worth it in the end.

This is the centre and I have started on the next borders, its a Medallion quilt and I have two more borders after this one . The Daisy's are 3D and look amazing when finished just a bit hard to stitch through all that fusible webbing .

This is one of the sides all ready to stitch the flowers are partly finished so I am off to make my self a good cup of tea with a good movie and do some more stitching . Have to say I am looking forward to the next border as its all  pieced  lol.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend where ever you are .
