And maybe because it has taken me a long time to hand quilt it all. I picked out random circles and sewed around them in gold thread, as well as quilting around the two main stars and the two 'christmas trees'
I am really pleased with how it has turned out, although I am dissapointed that my partner has not commented on it (or anything!) I hope she likes it
..... if not she can always flip it over and use the back instead :-)
This swap has been full of lovely people, who have all encouraged each other and left positive thoughts. It has been great fun, so lots of thanks to Susan for putting this one together. It might be my last one for a while: I have 5 exams that I really must take before next summer, so the pressure of any swap deadlines may have to wait until they are over!
For now, I shall wait for this to get to its destination and wait and see which amazing runner from the swap will land on my doorstep (I want them all!)
