Long time Ufo be gone !

My oldest Ufo, Snowman Collector Block of the Month is done!!

Nearly as a block of the year really - close to 8 years from start to finish.....
I did not enjoy the project to much, and I will keep away from most BOMs for the future.
I can be tempted to do more stitchery BOMs though !

I will try to get a better photo when the heavy rain has stopped.For tomorrow even snow is predicted in our area.

What a day to get snow, 17. May, the National Day of Norway.
I am happy I do not have small primary school children who would like to attend the parades and the outdoor fun after.
I am counting my blessings !

My quilt helper, our beloved grand-cat is visiting.
She is very helpful with the hand quilting as you see, but 4 paws do not do much good for speed :-)

Now, on to the next unfinished project - Onward Ho !

Way to go, Hanne! It is stunning. You must feel terrific getting the oldest UFO marked off of your 'to do' list. I have a similar BOTM with Santas, but I haven't even started that one.
