Introducing me...

Dear Stitching Friends,

My name is Satu and I'm a passionate stitcher from Finland.
I started to stitch A Gardener's Journal (Smell the Roses and Annual Garden Show) few years ago, but then I lost my control - typical for me - and later I have made them as greeting cards.

It might happen again, that I'll lose the track,
but I hope then YOU all will rescue me???

I have now stitched the stitcheries for block G and I'm waiting the fabrics.
I hope they will arrive in this week...

I decided to use mainly the fabrics from the Blackbird Design's Garden Party coll. When I saw this collection I thought that is a perfect line for my Gardener's Journal.
Well, perhaps fabrics will arrive today...
... my fingers are itching already...
... where is the postman...

Until next time...
Happy Stitching to YOU!!!

I have been away for 10 days. Therefore this late comment. The Garden Party fabrics are a perfect choise for your quilt. Go for it, but I can imagine how hard it is to wait to get started.
