Finished just in time

Ah, Finished just in time to put under the Christmas tree for a special gift to friends of ours.
This quilt has been appliqued and hand stitched in each block. Its taken me nearly twelve months to achieve (part time).
I hope you're all going well with your gift making and shopping for Christmas presents. I still need to hit the shops for some last minute gifts and my teenage guys. Hm, what to buy for my guys???

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy, Fun year for 2010

Oh Anna, that is a LOT of work! I had to quit doing the handwork a long time ago, due to the hands going on strike!
What a wonderful present!
Teenage guy presents? Oy....gift certificate to a CD store.

You know I haven't thought of painting him, this is such a good idea. I do feel a little overwhelmed when I look at him.
