Moose Sighting!

Yes, in central Indiana...we have a moose sighting. Deep in the woods of quiltingmom's sewing room a moose has emerged.

This is a project that my mom bought at least 10 years ago to make for a friend who collects moose items. She has since moved away from that friend and bought a few more cross stitch projects, so I was bequeathed this one because now I have a friend who collects moose items. He is moving into a new home next month, so this will be a housewarming gift for him. Although it seems as if I just did this, the year on the bottom says 2007, so I must have had it hidden in my sewing table for at least a year and a half! Yikes!

I worked on it a few weeks ago when I was hosting the Bonnie Hunter workshop, so the back of it sports a wonky star a la Bonnie, with thanks to Linda for the moose in the middle - isn't it great to have friends with fun scraps?

I'm so glad for the serendipity of actually having a bit of moose to go with your great project! It looks terrific.

It is nice to get those projects done, no matter how long it takes.
