Finally...

after a loooong period of procrastination and other projects, I have come around and picked up my Bride again. Today, I finished my last block (as I'll only make 12) and can now turn to the borders. Here's my last block.

After being done with the horses and tree, I counted the apples/fruit I wanted to insert in between all the leaves - 54 all together - and I remembered the tedious process for the few grapes block, so I cast all plans overboard, went into Ebay and auctioned 2000 mixed buttons of all colors and sizes, picked out 54 small ones of varying size and yellow to red color and sewed them on just now. I think it works really well and adds another splash of embellishment, color and shine to my blocks.

Now for that border....

Greetings from the Rhine,

My finished top!

I am so excited to have my top finished. It has been a wonderful one year journey. I plan to baste it later this week and begin the quilting.

It's been about a month since anyone posted, and i have nothing to show neither. Just want to wish all of you a very very merry Christmas and an extremely happy new year, with all the things that make up a good life along with a lot of sewing time. Enjoy,
