Thanks for letting me know about this page Sue. How wonderful to see all your progress through the year. I know you blog about it but its easy for us readers to forget all your work as the months go by. Its just stunning & one of my favourite quilts of all the lovely ones you make. Look forward to when you reveal "a finish". Xx
