its Quilted, Bound and Hanging


Ta Da my Gardeners' Journal is finished and hanging proudly in the hallway
of our home.

Our local council each January has 'music in the park' on Sunday afternoons
so yesterday I took my GJ with us and managed to get the binding sewn down

Thank you so much to Chookyblue for starting the Stitch-A-Long

at times I thought I would never get it finished as so much
turmoil was happening in my private life, but I persevered

and yippee it's done.

and I love it.

Roll on 'Tis the Season stitch-a-long :)
