It was a hard-fought battle in so many ways, but Wind in the Whiskers is a FINISH!!! Yesterday's effort was to embroider a face onto the sleeping cat, and to add some whiskers.
There was also beading in the centers of the dogwood blossoms all the way across the top of the quilt.
Then more whiskers on the tuxedo cat and the chipmunk.
Antennae to be added to the butterfly.
And whiskers on one final cat.
Smitty was happy to serve as my whisker model.
And now...it's hanging in my sewing room where I can look at it every day.
I started this quilt on August 29, 2013, and sadly, it still isn't my oldest UFO. Mulligan Stew has that honor...and it's still not finished. Five+ years in the making, Wind in the Whiskers is a finish as of December 26, 2018. Yahoo!!!
My December OMG was to finish top-stitching and quilting all of the areas outside the pink line, sew on the binding and finish the embellishing.
Now it's completely finished, and I'll be linking up to the December OMG Finished linky party.
Today, I have grocery shopping to do, and then I'll be moving on to the next thing. In tomorrow's post, I'll be looking backward at my finishes for 2018 and setting some goals for 2019. There are always more quilts to make, and a whole new year's worth of time to fill.
