Quilt finally finished!

Well it is done! Finally after about 15 years I have finished this sample quilt. It started life as a sample in a PW class, grew to be five pieces framed to hang on my wall, then grew again into this quilt. The journey has been long, & one of much learning, like accuracy, colour choice, & the difficulty in FMQing something of this size. So, one item ticked off my UFO list, only thirty something to go.

Tagged !

I have been tagged ! I wondered how long this little game would avoid me! Thanks to Larinda, here goes.

I am a water girl, love to sit beside it, look at it, listen to it, splash my feet in it, you get the drift. Anything from the ocean, water-falls, lakes, rivers etc. My favourite is the beach, I love to sit on it, lay on it, walk on the sand, dabble my feet in the waves, & search for the wildlife that live near-by.

That being said, rain is one of my my least favourites. Most of the time I find it depressing. I can cope with one or two days of rain in a row but by the third day I am climbing the walls! I think it has something to do with my low levels of vitamen D! But I do so love the sound of rain falling on a tin roof! ( a memory from my childhood)

Thunderstorms are my nightmare. Ever since I was a little girl I have been frightened of them. I have tried to overcome my fear a few times but each time I have got caught out, once in the car with a screaming 2 y/o in the back seat & hail pounding on the roof of the car! Though once they have passed over me, or prooved they will not come near me, I can watch the lightning for hours, especially if it is out off a beach!

This love of water has produced my favourite colour of blue/green, but combine this with pink & maybe a dash of white & we have my all time favourite colour scheme.

I am a perfectiomist. Everything has to be just SO & I get frustrated when it doesn't happen. This has led to a lifetime of learning to make everthing perfect!

I love a challenge, makes me think ouside my square & usually sends me off to research something.

On the other hand, I am a scardy cat, & have to do my research really well before takling something new! This might have something to do with being a perfectionist, & wanting everthing to turn out right the first time.

Now it is time for me to tag seven people.
