Another one bites the dust!

Oh Yeah, another bites the dust. Sharing this picture of another UFO finished. I really don't undersdtand why I perpetually put away a project to have it sit there for years. This one has been sitting around for over 2 years. It started because of taking a class from Nancy Davis-Murty called "Stitching Fancy with Nancy" that was enjoyable and broadened my horizons as far as using more of the decorative stitches on my bernina sewing machine.
After the class I had every intention of finishing it, although I hadn't used a stabilizer under the heart shaped flowers and wasn't thoroughly impressed with the way this wallhanging was laying. After the class, life was interrupted and having other commitments, etc.... so needless to say, it became shelved.
So with the challenge I'm doing through my Mother's guild, this one is my finish for May. Here is a picture of some of the detail. I had to stiple the heck out of it to make sure it laid flat in the background and I used some of the bondable crystals within the flowers. I really smile now that it's finished and this makes me happy. The next number pulled is 4 which is my "Alien Invasion" quilt top. Off to pick up the sewing room and think how I'll be piecing my backing for the invasion quilt.
Enjoy your day.

Dear quiltsmiles, did you receive my first comment? I do not want to remember what I said but it was full of admiration and sympathy and hope to meet you again.
