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

Slowly ...

...my stitching is progressing nicely ... have almost finished my 5th block ...
... and it looks a little like this ...


... I couldn't help but put it all together...

I'm very happy with my pink and red colours using French General fabrics ... mostly Pom Pom de Paris. 

I'm so enjoying the stitching, decided to use Cosmo Stranded cotton as the Multithread was the wrong colour totally!

Happy stitching, Perri

This is so lovely. The pink looks do pretty. I like the variegated thread. I'm doing some of the smaller projects using it.

Perri, your fabrics look wonderful, I love the pink/red combo and I am not a pink person! It's nice to see the overall look too.
