It took me a while but it is finished

I must say I am pretty slack at posting these days , I finished this pillow earlier this month and had plans on posting here but it just did not happen. Anyway this Christmas pillow only took me TEN years to complete , pretty sad huh , but at least it has finally become a finished project and no longer a UFO .The worst part is it only took me about 30minutes or less to complete .
I had attended a retreat with the Northumberland Quilt Guild in 2002 and one of our workshops was reverse applique to make this poinsetta ,I loved the retreat and the workshop but after arriving home I promptly put this away for revisiting later and I am sure I had plans on finishing it before Christmas of that year , the retreat was in August I believe ,anyway it never surfaced again until recently when I was in search of something else and came across this in a container .The funny thing is that after all this time I still had a piece of the red fabric I had used  in the center to finish off the front but not quite enough to do the back  but found another red that was a perfect match .I hope each and everyone of you have a very Merry Christmas .
Hugs Sheila

Love your cushion - poinsettias are such a Christmas thing! 30 minutes to finish - silly isn't it that we leave them languishing for so long. Thank goodness for SIF.
