1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March.

Block A's done and dusted!

Yes that's right, I'm still keeping up to date. Block A is now complete Yey!
A couple of minor alterations to suit the jelly roll and charm pack I'm using but all in all it looks pretty much the same. So now it's onwards to Block C!

Looks great!
Mine is almost together. Picture this: I'm sitting at my machine. The first strip with the potting shed is done and most of the pieces that go with the weather van are done. I'm frantically reading and looking but I can't find where it tells me about those border strips around the vane. Nothing I have cut fits. Well, I must have been tired at that point because it too a while for that light bulb to come on and send me back to the cutting guide and those extra pieces. Duh!
Its all in the game, I guess.
Blessings and happy stitchin'
