Boys Story quilt finished!

I have been slowly stitching the binding on the Boys Story quilt and it is now finished and on Josh's bed ...
A Boys Story quilt - designed by Anni Downs
I used one of the stitcheries for the label

Here it is on my bed so you can see it better, with the Robot cushion
Needless to say, Josh loves it and I LOVE that I have finished it!
Thank you so much for all your kind and thoughtful expressions of sympathy in the recent loss of my precious mum.  Your comments and emails have warmed my heart and I am grateful for the friendship I have received. 
I am being very brave because I will post a photo of me!  Here is a favourite photo of myself and Mum, taken in May 2010.
 Blessings, Wendy
