The Flu and a Finish...

Yep the dread lurgy has been in my household this past two weeks... first hubby had it and then me and for some reason I had it worst than him??? our wool was being loaded out on Monday and I was doing the hoist part... well the truckie said I should go home as they could do the last 5 bales after I had done 100 of them hahaha... my temp was up and I had both the windows open in the work ute and the air con on while operating the hoist... 
but today I feel better and even got dressed no PJ's today...
 yep I even loaded wool bales in my PJ's...
when my head wasn't throbbing to much I did work on that WIP I showed you last post 
and I have it finished....
 I quilted in all the ditches for each border...
 quilted pebbles in the centre and free motioned around the centre applique...
 free motioned around the flying geese and squiggles around them...
 I stitched in the ditch free motion in the square in the square row...
the star row is ditch stitch as well...
it has taken a few days to get it completed however it is finished and the binding is attached and sewn down in  red
and sitting on my dining room table for now...
I started this as a BOM with IFQ a few years ago... I struggled with the pinwheels round for some reason I just couldn't get into it... so my pinwheels ended up very small and only in the corners and NOT sewn very well at all...
the rest of this week I need to work on my ''secret swap'' I didn't think I was going to get it finished by the end of the month mailing deadline... I still have a week.
