First Finish!!!

As  you can see by my new header picture, I finished the piece my husband got me for Christmas!! I put the last stitches in about 7:20 tonight. Any guesses how long it took to stitch that one row border around the outside!?!?! I was so tempted to leave it off, but he said it looked so much better with it, so I added it.
I am now going to focus on a few of my WIP pieces for a while....first up will be the Novalee 2 SAL from last year. I got the last part to it a couple days ago, but I wanted to finish this piece first.
I got some of the neatest containers on clearance at Walmart the other day. They hold a kitted up project just perfect & will be super to haul my projects along with me when I go away from home....
If I remember, I will take a picture before my next post.
I hope you are all having a great start to the new year!!!

Your finish and blog header are lovely. The colours are very pretty together and the sentiment is perfect.

Very pretty and I see you figured out how to use one of your pictures for your header! I think that little border does add a bit of detail had it been left off!
