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

I heard Chookyblue cracking the whip ............

......... which was perfect timing as here are my first 2 finished blocks, hot off the press this afternoon.



And just when she was about to give up on me, I've also been piecing the centre block of A Gardener's Journal.  I'll be back with a pic of that before the end of the month - promise! 

It's been wonderful seeing all the blocks finished so far - you are all doing an amazing job - and I look forward to seeing all the rest soon. 

Happy stitching .................................. Nicky    http://farmgirlstitching.blogspot.com/
