Tavern House Block 8

Yippeeee! A first official "finish" for 2016! Well... at least the top is finished. This BOM was short the wool for the border that is supposed to edge the entire quilt... so, I'll be heading to an LQS next month to see if I can find a flannel that will compliment the background woolens...

Still not so good for taking pictures... but, you'll see this one again in the Summer when the border, binding and backing is on and it can be declared an official finish! :-)

Nothing much else to show for stitching projects... I have a few new starts, but will wait until a little more progress is accomplished on them before showing them here.  Maybe next weekend...

And, after thinking about this for a long time... I've decided to list this rug on eBay...

Thanks much! And, enjoy each day for the gift that it is!

  2. That is a beautiful quilt, really love the colors and wools.
    I also love your rug and hate to see it go so low, I hope you have a reserve on it, too beautiful and large to let it go so low.

    Love the horses, hope you do well on the sale!

  4. Great job on that Block #8 Sharon, and the horses rug is so attractive. I love the colors. I'm sure parting with the rug is bitter sweet. You can always make another one if you so choose. Thanks for sharing your goodies with us.
