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

productive weekend then

 I managed to get a few stitcheries done over the weekend while sitting in the plane on the way to Wellington on Friday evening;
 and back to Timaru last evening,
so put these together this afternoon... I think I am pretty happy with the outcome so far..

I need more hours in my days 'tho, would just love to sit 'til I can get this finished!

Enjoy your week... and your stitching
