All good things take time !!

I do believe that all good things take time and I am so pleased to have this wee beauty finished as it was on my to do list for Christmas this year!!  I started the ten stitchery's back in 2013 when I brought the gorgeous pattern from Rag-Tag Stitchin, I so luv gingies and once I finished stitching them back in 2013 they have sat because I needed to design some kind of wall hanging for them to go on and then I felt it was missing something! ............  Then what happened to appear in January 2015 Country Threads Magazine, another gorgeous stitchery by Michelle Ridgway (the top stitchery) I LUV GINGIES, this is what I needed to finish this wall hanging, so that is what I stitched last week and have spent the last 2 days sewing all those 2 inch squares!!  I  love the fabric, so rich, so country!!, don't you??  I am undecided if I am going to hand quilt this myself or whether I get it quilted, either way I am so excited to have it finished!!

So thanks Michelle Ridgway for the gorgeous patterns, please keep on drawing!!  I am looking forward to this taking pride of place at Christmas!
Hope everyone is warm and enjoying there Wednesday!
