    It is FINALLY FINISHED!!!!

    Today at 4:11pm Central Time I sewed the last stitch into the binding of the quilt from hell. I can't wait to see the thing out of my house.
    That is all.

    I have to take pictures tomorrow when the light is better. I'll post them tomorrow night - promise.

    I just pulled some Christmas prints out of my stash to make some mug rugs for the girls at work. That is my reward, to make something I want to make, that doesn't take the gestation period of an elephant to finish.

    You have made me crack up twice in one post. I know just how you feel too! By the way, just how long is an elephant's gestation period? I still can't wipe the smile off my face. LOL! Can wait to see your pic tomorrow night!

    Oh Oh I know this one!!! The gestation period of an elephant is 22 months! I am currently a student in a Registered Vet Tech program and we had to know this last month for our final!!! I guess I really am learning something!!

    Wow! 22 months... those poor mommy elephants! Can you imagine? LOL You get an A+!
    (I like your signature quote too)

    Okay, here's one they won't teach you at Vet Tech school:
    Do you know how to tell when it is that time of the month for an elephant?

    I loved the description and cannot imagine how relieved you are. I dug mine up and draped it over a chair from where it stares at me accusingly. Wait, I'll get to it. Soon!

    Thank you for the laugh and the "shared misery" of quilts we wished we'd never started. I think this needs to be a thread. Maybe under pictures. "Unfavorite quilts that took forever and are now finally done." Maybe something a little shorter. Finally Finished Quilts from Hell. FFQH. We could start a new acronym!

    It is Finally Finished!!! - Picture Added

    Here is the picture of the QFH. It is 1/2 a football field and 1/2 a basketball court. I used a wood grain pattern fabric for the 'floor of the basketball court. All the lines for both fiield's were free hand embroidered using a Pfaff 138-6 industrial. The numbers were done on my Brother PC6500. The quilting was done on a Pfaff 1222E.
    The girl I made it for was the manager for both her high school teams. I made a full football field for a charity auction last March. I have never been so happy to see a project finished. Sorry it is wrinkled. It spent the night in my car.
