Scatterday - Y

It's our very last Scatterday challenge, and our last letter is:

and our categories are:
and from the sewing room - yahoo!!!! Something that you were really pleased you finally finished.

I had trouble finding a Y item for this one, but this quilt I finished in June this year contained a lot of "Y-seams", so assembling it was very time consuming.

The Yarra River in June this year. In contrast to our long days at the moment, this photo was taken just before 6:00pm, when it was thoroughly dark.

Given that I'm actually writing this post on Friday night, yesterday was hot! Sorry about the bit of dust or something on the thermometer, but by the time I realised it was there the temperature had dropped so I couldn't re-take the photo.

I started in this quilt in 2001 and was very, very happy when I finished it in 2012!

So that's the end of our Scatterdays journey. It's been fun! Many thanks to Cinzia for initiating it, running it all year, and hosting the links. Check out the other participants via her blog here. We lost a few along the way due to illness, busyness, travel and life in general.  Congratulations to those who made it to the end!


  1. Yay! We made it!!!
    Wondering now what to do with my alternate Saturdays ;-)
    Catch up for a celebratory coffee sometime soon. Cheers

  2. BEAUTIFUL QUILTS, Vireya! I love the photo of the Yarra. It reminds me of my first Christmas there in 1992..having dinner at "Walter's". Clever use of the oven's clock. Hope you are feeling cooler today.

    1. Thank you! That's not the clock on the oven, Pauline, it's an indoor-outdoor thermometer. It has a sensor out in the back yard, but the display panel is inside.
