It's finished! (except for the label) - the last stitches went in around 3:00 this afternoon - it took a trip through the washer (with a Shout color catcher just in case) and dryer - and was still warm when I gave it to the bride and groom to be.

Hubby is holding it for me - you can just see his toes peeking out and he had his arms up above his 6'2" height - so it is a nice size - not huge but transportable back to Japan with them.

We had fun talking about the different fabrics in it and how they are connected to different parts of the family.

I am thinking of calling this one "Omedetai" - which translates to "Happy Event."
