Fresh start

I have not posted for ages so much has happened that I would not know where to begin. Thought that I would just have a fresh start and show what I have just finished.
 It is a pattern I adapted from jeans diamonds   It was for a diamond wedding anniversary. The original pattern had a white background. The couple I made it for live in a very old cottage and I thought that the white looked to modern. As I am on a use up my stash drive and only having a white sheet for the background I dyed it Pebble beige really pleased with the colour.
Then I had the problem for the backing decided on  a dark cream fleece which was also in my stash. I backstitched their names and dates in the middle squares. Thankfully the couple were thrilled.
