Done! (okay it will be in half an hour!)

After receiving an email from Victoria yesterday, asking if I had ever finished my self portrait, it was just the kick in the pants that I needed!  I can honestly say that I was working on it last weekend, but got distracted.  Well yesterday I decided I better get it done to get Victoria off my back so I wouldn't have another UFO hanging over my head!  (Somewhere I have a Waverunner that needs quilting hmmm, maybe I'm not done with Victoria yet!)
So out it came - see it was right beside my machine - on went the borders, sandwiched, quilted - time to play - I always like that!

Binding on, and now it's half stitched down, and I'm taking it outside to sit in the sunshine and finish off that last bit!  Can I say I'm done now???

Now, to figure out which closet needs to have a "guard" to keep the scary monsters away!
Thank you Victoria for hosting this challenge, and giving me the "gentle nudge" to get this done! 
Now onto the next challenge - finding 15 minutes a day to create fabric - you always have such great ideas, V!

It turned out so nice. The quilting makes me swoon! I have a Waverunner flopping in the breeze too. Don't tell V! ;)
