Block A Complete!!!

 Woo hoo...much excitement here...
After setting myself the goal of completing Block A last week...
I DID IT...
So here 'tis...



Cutting was a bit slower due to my broken arm healing but the machining was quite easy (thank goodness)...healing will take up to 12 months...hopefully I will get full function of my shoulder back but maybe not...

I have tried to incorporate fabrics from Anni's shop seeing I used to live in Bathurst and was there when Anni first opened up...
I was at my friend's house and remember her saying that she was opening up a shop soon...and the rest is history!!!

And for interest...have a look over here to see a French blog doing A Gardener's Journal...

Happy Stitching everybody...Dzintra (aka Ingrid)
