My Gardeners Journal Finished!!!


It's so good to have my Gardeners Journal finished...I was up until 1.30 putting the final stitching on the binding. I really love all Anni Downs' cute and quirky stitcheries in this quilt...although I must admit I did get a bit 'stuck' in the vegie patch! Lol!
I used all my repro fabric from my stash, but had to buy the outer border fabric...wish I had purchased more from Esmes as its really lovely!




Hours and hours of stippling yesterday!
Now I have to work out fabrics for the next stitch-a-long Tis The Season, which I am looking forward to! Are you joining us? Details can be found on the stitch-a-long blog.

I hope you all enjoy your Sunday
