Yes,my orchard is done!

Hi,then we have been stitching the same at the same time,Chookyblue :-)


Here you see my orchard,lovely block to stitch,I have been waiting to
sewing this one all the time. I sewd it to the rest yesterday. And
now on Saturday January 15th 2011,I am just having a small break here:
I am in the middle of cutting the first border,having less left of
the fabric than I thought,I reduced it to cut 1 1/4,which is OK as the
colour is very red.

Now then,maybe tonight the top will be ready. My heart is already beating
fast,almost can`t believe it. Just gone 1 whole year with you lot :))) LOL
In fact it has been great! Back to work,more later ......
