The Garden Party for a Gardeners Journal ........



Happy to show you: Yes,block A is ready! I have made a decision on fabrics,was quite easy in the end,deceided to keep my fabrics that was in that big lid I showed you in the start. Used most of that Moda range,and I like it. Well,there are so many lovely blocks among us and I almost could have chosen any of the fabrics :-)

I have booked space the professional quilting for later on. I am not a very good hand-quilter,so I think it is wise.

Oh,by the way: if you watched the Eurovision Song Contest,I am sure you agreed that the young German girl deserved to win.Hurrah for Denmark,they became no 4. I deleted the post here on the young Norwegian "Pavarotti" Didric.
He became no 20 out of 25,but I still think his sings wonderfully!

Lovely,warm and sunny here today. My DH is on this huge yearly Aircraft Show. I managed to finish this block and starting to pick out fabrics for the house block. A whole month to decide and changing the fabrics around. May be I am the only one that keep switching pieces around here and there?

Take care and Happy Stitching to you all.

It is a hard job to come home from holiday. The garden really needs a helping hand, but I am slowly getting into the stitching world again. Your block is lovely and I like your fabrics but agree it is difficult to see what it ends up with. Hopefully a good result.
