UFO (unfinished object) completed

All I have left to do on this little gem is the binding which will only take about 5 minutes (not including the hand-work which I don't count). I greatly underestimated the work involved in this and am really happy to finally finish it. I first started it back in February. I pick it up every month or so, work on it a couple hours, get bored, work on something else, come back to it, etc.

It's the first time I've echo quilted anything. I'm glad I chose a smaller project for my first attempt. Attention wanders ever so slightly and it's quickly very obvious. Rip, rip, rip, -frog stitch to the rescue. Anyway, it reminds me of this
real-life hummingbird I snapped a picture of last fall outside the kitchen window.

Sunday Blessings:
Music to stitch to
Indoor flush toilets
Hummingbirds, bumblebees, and any other creatures which can't possibly do what they do but never get that memo so they go ahead and do it anyway.

Oh Ann, I love this piece. Talk about patience... and wherever did you get the pattern. Great job!
