My Very First UFO!!

Yay!! My very first UFO listed here on Sew It's Finished!! I have finally finished this little Ladybug Quilt that I bought as a kit from the USA ages ago to make for my darling little granddaughter.  Well, I have finally finished in time to give it to her for her 2nd Birthday, last Sunday.  The 1st photo is of the quilt almost finished, and then the 2nd photo is when little granddaughter opened up the parcel, and she laid down on the quilt straight away, actually she laid her head down on it too, but I didn't catch a photo of that - but she loved it!  I had been up until 1am the night before finishing off the binding (the hand sewing bit), and now have a couple of holes in the top of my middle finger... *ouch* .... all worth it thought for the reaction my granddaughter had when she saw it.  We gave her a dolly, and other presents too, but it was so nice that even at only 2 she loved her little quilt :0) - makes all the hard work worth it, doesn't it?  Hopefully I will have even more finished items to add this year too.  Hugs to all from Suzie Q

The little petals on the flowers stand up, so they can be touched in a 3D effect
Here she is touching the little flowers and looking at the Ladybugs - oh so cute!
