I made the decision to hand quilt it because my FMQ skills still suck.
(Hello, goal for 2014.)
Anywho, I did it. It was harder than I thought it would be. I get frustrated with how slowly I hand sew. Probably yet another reason why I should be doing it more....to get practice being patient. (Yup. Not my strength.)

I'm a bit scared to wash my Penny Sampler, as the blues I've used lately have seemed to be a source of problems. (Gah. I pray I haven't jinxed myself.)

Now, to work on the lists for 2014!
