Yes!

I am SO excited to finally have this top finished, and I just love how it looks.

Even though it's the same pattern as my original Starstruck quilt, it's amazing how different it looks with the blue triangles rather than the original red ones.

I'd love to get right into the quilting, but first I'm going to busy myself cleaning the sewing room - it really needs a good vacuum, and I should cut up some of the scraps that need to go into the boxes - they can build up so fast.

In other news - later in the year Marty and I and our friends Kath and Andrew are planning to travel to Hong Kong. Yesterday Kath and I found a great deal - tickets are reserved, and tomorrow money will change hands. So exciting - it's really happening! We can't wait :-)

Again, I really like this. Borders are perfect!

Enjoy your trip. We went to South Korea last November and China a few years ago. The food is most interesting and good!

Love the look of this quilt. Reminds me of the one I just got quilted.
What a trip. Guess Hon Kong isn't as far as the US. Enjoy,

Absolutely wonderful to see the finished quilt. I love this one, being a Star girl and all.

But the news about the trip, well, that's exhilarating! Talk about a dreamy trip, a trip of a lifetime. That's on the top. Congrats. I'm so happy for y'all.
