Finished!!!

This labour of love took 4 days from start to finish. I snapped a needle by getting my finger in the way and it went straight through the side of my nail and straight out the other side OUCH!!
Then yesterday when I was cooking the tea, some oil splashed all over my hand which caused alot of pain and meant I had to soak my hand in ice cold water for about 4 hours before the burning subsided but I was determined to get the thing finished...




To top it off my little sewing machine didn't have enough power to make the quilt so I had to use this old thing..



I have to say thats the best £20 Keiths spent in a long time :-D,he brought it ages ago out of the paper and its been stuck at the bottom of the wardrobe until he brought it out a few days ago.

Next thing on the agenda to learn is crochet :-D I've been and brought a book with the basics in,got a few video tutorials in me favourites and hooks from a resident at work,she gave me them after she asked if I can do latch hook which I stupidly said yes I could, so three guesses what I've got here in a box!!
