A final finish for 2009

Yesterday we had a lovely time; we went out for lunch with our neighbours + some other neighbours from down the road. We had a scrummy lunch, and sat around the table chatting until about 5 o'clock. No need for me to cook any supper after that!

Today we're off to Bath. I've promised myself a few new clothes and Christopher will make sure I don't run away. As I've mentioned before, I really dislike shopping of any type, and will probably stand in the shop, get bemused and bewildered and decide that I really don't need any new clothes after all. But C will keep me on track.

In between all the Christmas festivities I've managed to finish Verandah Views, Cheryl Goss's lovely BOM from last year. I had to get it done since she's promising another one for 2010.
I haven't found a home for it yet, and today's weather is certainly not conducive to good photography. It was still dark at 8 o'clock this morning and hasn't cheered up much since. It's a pretty little quilt though.

And now, I wonder what I'm going to make in 2010?

It's lovely. I started doing that one and then decided that stitchery was not for me.
Best of luck with the shopping. I have to go with Gem next week. She's a shopaholic whereas I'm very much like you. I'm dreading it

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Love that pink and green combination of colors.

What a lovely quilt. I so enjoy the combination of stitchery and quilting even though I've never tried it myself. I keep thinking that it would be nice take along or TV work, but then worry that it would be like starting another hobby. The results are lovely though and it opens up a whole new realm of design ideas.

Very lovely! I hope you got something nice, Amanda! Good ol' Christopher to go shopping with you and wanting you to buy something.
