Tangled Textiles: Home is where the heart is

For those of you who have been wondering where I have been for the last few days,  I have been desperately trying to finish my piece for the Tangled Textiles Challenge "Celebrate"

Here is mt post from the reveal, but don't forget to check out the other quilts here 

This is what I wanted to celebrate.  The place I live.
The gum trees and wattles that I walk under every day, the river I see out my window and the mossy rocks in the forest behind my house.
This piece is mostly thread painted, with a bit of applique, some underpainting and  layering of sheers.  I used around 16 bobbins of bobbin fill - that is a lot of bobbins!!! 
So.....  I know you will forgive me if I haven't quite finished.  I just need to finish the faced binding, but I am so tired after being up all night - and I need to get some sleep and be a bit fresher before I tackle that..
One day, I will actually complete something simple and uncluttered - maybe the next challenge?   Didn't I say that last time.......?

Now back to some more work and experiments.
