I need to get this done

this is a quilt one of my nieces started when she was about 8
the top is together waiting a back and quilting

it was a quilt of "her life" at the time
this was her skiing block 
her Uncle Jody used to take them skiing

this was her hamster. I know I cant draw hamsters LOL
but she made it out of a fuzzy material for 3 d effect

so many memories in this little lap quilt
I need to finish it or have it finished
she is now 20 and it would make a cute
quilt for her to pass to any children she may have
I miss her and looking at this quilt made me miss 
her more.
Four of my five nieces have one of these in some stage
this one is ready to quilt
I think some are ready to border
and some need more blocks I think
their Christmas gifts may be staring me in the face!
we will see if I can get my frame up and running
if not, I need to save up and get er done
