A Finally Finished Object

Apparently I finished stitching this sometime in 2015, because that is the year that I put in the signature line. Yesterday, I took most of the afternoon to convert it into a wall hanging and it now adorns our dining room wall.

 

I used some hand dyed fabric that I had enstashed for the border. This was my first attempt at mitering corners on a quilt and it was a lot easier that I thought it would be. I imagine I'll be mitering a lot more corners on quilts in the future.

Tomorrow its back to work and I really feel like I could use another two or three weeks vacation time. Oh well, I guess its easier to appreciate vacation when its rare.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's and found some time to relax and craft. Happy 2017!
