Stitching, quilting, thinking

This picture is a bit blurry, I took it with my left hand,
 even after ironing each panel to fix the fabric crayon I'm getting blue fingers :)

there is something quite satisfying about hand quilting,
my stitch line is a long way from being perfect

 but that's what I like about it, and why I chose to do this, it's not something I had planned to do with this quilt re~make, it was more a subconscious decision that was made somewhere in the process...

the more I stitch the more stitching I want to do on it, leaving my mark in the fabric.
 I'm not going to rush it to get it finished

 but I will keep at it, when time allows, till it's complete. 

Looking forward to Kevin and my little girl coming home today, they left Southampton at 3am this morning to do the long drive home and should be arriving home any minute! :)
What a lovely sunny day it is here in Fife.

Lovely day in Lancashire and I am impressed with all your hard work this week Yvonne, you have been busy. Can't wait to see the end results.

Thanks Mo and Lynn :) I have really enjoyed this quilt remake, and I'm looking forward to the hand quilting that I still have to do on it, it's quite theraputic.
