I MADE IT

Now it is sept 30th and the clock is 2245. I am putting the last pins in the Angel Story book quilt. Deadline for Stinas Angel Story book club is finishing the top before oct 1st (tomorrow)

Tadaaaaaa......The top is done..........the clock is 23:10. I made it.

The top is finished.

Thank you Stina for pushing me so to finish this top. Now I have 3 months to finish the quilting.

I have celebrated my birthday sewing with a glass of white wine. A perfect day with a lot of phones and mails from good friends.

Saying for today:

A birthday is just the first day of
another 365-day journey around the sun.
Enjoy the trip.
